I went with stage 1's the first time around, and honestly with I had gone with a 238cc hybrid instead. They can be detuned for lower power levels, but can support over 500hp IIRC. And I don't think they're too much more expensive.

But with that said, with my chip and the stage 1's, it makes a good DD that will outrun a surprisingly good number of other cars out there. I didn't really see a mileage increase over stock though, at least not in town. But I did step to larger, heavier tires as well. I didn't lose any MPG, so I'm content.

But those are a LOT more money if this guy knows he'll never need the extra fueling.

Well if he's absolutely sure he'll never need the extra fuel, then yeah, it's an unneeded expense. But I've seen many people (including myself), say they wish that had gone with something bigger the first time around. I was just throwing it out there for what it's worth.
