    All depends on what dyno you are tuned on.

    If it says catback, then no. If it says turboback, then yes.

    Try not to think of it as a numbers game. If you're looking for a quick 12 second daily driver, stage 2 is what you're looking for. Stage 2 should suit your fancy. (cobb AP/custom tune, down pipe, and exhaust)

    Reliability with those mods will depend on you as the driver. Take it easy on the transmission and don't do AWD launches.

    Off the top of my head...

    Precision Tuning in Brick
    Akuma in New Brunswick/Woodbridgish area?
    and even make a trek over to PA and hit up R/T Tuning.

    All are very well known.

    Good advice all around.

    You won't notice a difference between 325hp...and 310hp...especially considering every dyno is calibrated differently. What matters most is what the area under the curve looks like on the dyno plot.

    Well, with a FWD or RWD car, if there is excess energy it is translated into wheel spin. With AWD, traction is much much better, so the energy goes into components other than the tires. If you dump the clutch, that means the differentials (very expensive to fix). If you slip the clutch, that means the clutch (less expensive, but how often do you want to replace a clutch??).
