    That's why I suggested a somewhat basic "stage 2" set up. You would be surprised how fast that setup would be. These cars are pretty good in the weight dept. considering they are AWD. You are focusing too much on HP. I would be more worried about torque. Especially considering the power train is a 4 cylinder pushing a 4 door chassis

    wouldn't it be wise to buy parts (with 400hp car mod list in mind) instead of buying parts for one setup then replacing it for others?

    Not if you build off of it. You're going to need a TBE anyway. Your going to need larger injectors anyway. You're going to need a larger intercooler anyway. Think of the "stages" as milestones on your way to 400hp. It's not two different setups, they all build off of each other. Like one of those russian porcelain dolls...or Legos. That's why you need a plan, and that's what everyone is trying to convey to you. They're laying out milestestone aka "stages." You have a goal but not a plan.

    Find a reputable shop, tell them your eventual goal, let the tuner know you will be back in the future (multiple times). They'll cut you a deal on your re-tunes.

    i know they do .i was referencing like for an example donkey told me to get 650cc injectors i believe thats what he said, instead i get some that are slightly higher thats what i meant.but yes i will be going through the stages .im not jumping stages per say
