    Exactly the same issue for me. I was going to beta test the Vargas Stage 2 for $1500 but when all is said and done I'd need a ton of supporting mods, install, dyno tune, etc. to run the +60hp I would get. Would have been $4000-5000 all said and done coming from where I am at now. I am going to wait it out for Stage 3 and start installing supporting mods now like COBB+G5, better clutch, some suspension stuff, LSD, etc.

    It should be noted though that 430whp on stock turbos is going to fry them eventually. I am DD'ing this car and can live with that fact. I don't think it will be any time soon, but they will go. That +60hp long run should be a much more reliable +60hp than the 430whp I have now in the long run. Of course you can always turn the boost down and run 400whp and the turbos should last a lot longer. The other option I am playing with is to inject meth pre-turbo to bring my WGDC down....

    From CSV using no corrections (virtual dyno mode... dynojet mode reads 470whp):

    Mods:

    G5, E85-91 50% blend, Wagner FMIC, and DCI. Nothing else with a 17.5 psi max boost limit daily driven. Did 410whp before the FMIC.

    Upgrading the twins go far beyond the peak HP number.

    Oh yeah, definitely. I am waiting for stage 3 and doing supporting mods like clutch and Cobb now. Just not worth the money if I want to go deeper anyway.
