The stock bulb is a Stanley H6M 35W/35W.

I have a 45W/45W in mine - brightest I could find.

I'm pretty sure the bulb fitting is a halogen H4 (I know it is for the 98-06 WRs). You can get them in 55/60W if you wanna make your headlight a bit brighter. Here's a link to a thread where a guy fitted a HID bulb to the stock reflector.

The PIAA bulbs are awesome. The ultra white 35/35w claims to put of light equal to a 65/65w bulb.

Any stator mods ?

Or can stock run the 45W ?

No problems at all. The stock stator puts out 100 watts AC and 25 watt DC. The headlight runs off AC, so you have pleanty of margin left.
