Default What to buy with bonus cash? Dry sump system or Xida-S

Wasn't sure where to put this but since the ultimate aim is a reliable HPDE car seemed ok here. Have 3-4K to spend on the car
Have most systems-braking(TSE kit), engine, cooling, safety(racetech seat, cage TBD), aero(apr wing, splitter).
I already have the FM AFCOs and I like them, have never ridden in car with Xidas but since everyone here says they are the ---- I am interested.
Are they that much better than the AFCOs?
The other option is a dry sump system-components about 3K from ARE, although hoses, fitting will be a significant $bump as well and the install is tougher. Mostly I think about this from a durability standpoint but lets be honest it is probably complete overkill.
Sick at home today and this seems to be occupying my thoughts.
Or I may simply forget both and do the the Dirtfish rally school.

Do the Xida and sell off the Afcos, but an accusump, then make it rain.

Xidas. Drysump is not necessary.

^^This. There will be a market for the Afcos at ~75% of retail so you will recoup some cash to nearly do both your projects. Suspension holds value. I scavenged Tokico Blues off a project car and got $200 + shipping for them and recently sold some Ricelands for $250 which is $4 less than I paid for them 2 years ago...

I did the 1 day school and had a BLAST beating on the STi's! I strongly recommend this school to everyone. You get a ton of 1 on 1 instructor time. My favorite "compliment" from my instructor:
"Your excellent car control lets you get away with poor technique and keep your speed."
