I guess you'll probably notice a significant bump in power going straight from 1 to 2+. You're going to love it. Tasha's car pulls HARD on stage 2+ though, i'm quite positive it's faster than my 2.0 TSI. It's a shame the a4/s4 is so heavy otherwise i would have really considered one.

looking into all the 5x114.3 setups too just because more common therefore cheaper.

LOVE the monoblocks...
There's a local girl running on monoblocks. She's always out on Woodward.
