Downpipe+Tune or Haldex Controller
 
Help me decide.

I am Stage 1+ right now, VWR Intake, HPFP.
Sway bar, end links, stiff control arms, KW coilovers.

Should I go for the switchable haldex controller for less understeer? Or should I go for a downpipe + stock catback and tune for the better torque curve?

Do the downpipe with stock cat youll love it. Later on you can get the haldex

If you're getting a controller, go with the competition controller instead of the switchable. Love mine.

Competition is race mode only? Does it reduced the longevity of the haldex clutch? I would like eco mode also as I do quite a bit of highway driving.

Competition is like race mode but also retains rear driveline engagement under braking. I certainly notice more control when letting off the gas/braking into a corner.

Not sure if it causes any additional wear but I haven't read or heard about premature failure. I'd just be more religious on haldex fluid and filter changes with a controller.
