Will you get the expected bite? Yes.

Will you also have increased wear at those temps? Also yes. 0C is not an optimal temp for the pad, but it will still function as you expect.

It's 100% worth it if you want or need more cooling. My turbo is oil cooled, and I never see over 225F or so on oil temp. :clap:

What he said is right. Just get a good tune on a base kit, and you will be fine. No need to build. There is risk with a rebuild too, and at that power level, the risk isnít worth the reward.

unchanged to -5%, if you drive EXACTLY the same as before boosting.

Of course, with how easy to accelerate it is, you'll likely be driving slightly faster, even under totally normal conditions.

But did you learn to be a better driver. Throwing a car around is one thing however learning car control is another issue. Beating the snot out of your equipment is no gauge of being a good driver.

Honestly? If you're new to tracking stick with stock tires and wheels. You'll learn a ton about slip angles. People are too quick to put on sticky tires when starting to track.
