Thanks for the info. I did not realize the cost differential. Also, how could they be stronger, but lack longevity as compared to the XZ's? Is the best combo then an XZ upper and an XR lower as...

My '08 353 came with 525's and XR's with drive showers. I would think Formula installed the most robust Bravo set up they could. Why do something different?

Mine came with 525's and I put Whipples on it the second season I had it.

The only drawback at all has been the drives. I had to accept a rebuild every...
