Default Vishnu stage 2/TXS stage 4 setups

got a question. ive been reading this forum for a while, but havent quite got the wrx yet.

what i wanna know is would buying all the parts that come in either the vishnu stage 2 or the txs stage 4 separately be cheaper than actually buying one of those packages?
or would it be cheaper to buy, for example:

a bigger turbo
spark plugs
IC hoses

also, does anyone know what a wrx with one of these packages generally runs in the quarter mile?

thanks for your help.

Well I can`t speak for Shiv but TXS sells the parts the same price as in the stage. So you can slowly build the stage or just jump right in.

As far as stage 4 times, I don`t believe Vishnu has a stage 4, and their stage 3 isn't really comparable to the TXS stage 4.

Vishnu uses a hybrid garrett turbo while the TXS stage 4 uses a VF30/VF34.

I know TXS is working on a variation that uses a nice hybrid garrett.

With a TXS stage 4 people have been running mid to low 12's (depending upon drive ability) and high 11's with no2.

I haven`t really seen any actual Vishnu Stage 3 times just assumptions.

Ok... I've been reading through most of these posts... and I really want a TXS Stage 4 kit next spring. I was also told by a few people, that Stage 4 kits are cracking blocks or doing weird things to the car. Is this true... I don't want to spend $4k and blow a motor.
