If you really get 350whp on the street you will want something sticky and wide (like your boyfriend's ****) up front so you can stop in a hurry.

If you do not plan to do any dragstrip use, I would probably steer clear of the drag radials. They will not hook much better than a really good high performance tire unless you heat them up. (I am speculating)

As far as all weather traction, I personally would not drive my high horsepower, pride and joy hot rod, unless the weather was ideal. I would think you would want a tire that has no compromise performance for when you drive it, the way you drive it.

Surely this is not your only vehicle. Is it?

I'm going with a dual setting MBC for boost control with a WI failsafe to drop to low boost. Spark by gear does sound interesting. I had the Hydra EBC working with 2.5 but have not tried it with 2.6. Maybe I should so I can do boost by gear. Or maybe a serial EBC/MBC boost control setup. Urgh
