yea, I'm planning on getting the Active Autowerks flash along with a stage 3 manifold which, according to what i've read on these boards, should get me to about 260ish HP which will help bridge the gap a little more. I figure in the long run I'll be saving at least $5k upfront by going with a 328 and then a few more bucks in the back-end since i'm planning on keeping this car until it dies. Not having to worry about replacing turbos past 100k is well worth sacrificing a few HP and having some peace of mind.
