not really vs the world but....
i notice that a lot of people that are stage4 with basic supporting mods run about high 12's and several others are doing low 13's.
i know some do mid 12's but it seems the majority do high12's to low 13's.
heres the thing. stage4 costs over 4grand.
but you can run low 13's on mods like (tires, IC hoses, MBC, TBE, uppipe)
i understand that a stage4 has faster spool, better traps, pulls MUCH harder uptop... but you can go BPU for about $1200 and only be few ticks slower than stage4.
I understand that a stage4 is more reliable with boost and all, but it seems to reach near full potential at mid 12's without more work.
it just seems odd that $1200 of bpu are making *almost* similar results to a vf30 with supporting mods.
any reason behind this?
