Too late, I'm already in this swap neck deep. I regret not going with the 205
I haven't driven my car for over 2 months. Nevertheless, I have the APEXi power FC and fmic (Arizona gets 125 degrees in summer) a 205 swap would be much less of a headache and cheaper. I let the mechanic talk me into what's "better"
