Stage 3's will be no problem at all. Stage 4's will be fine as well. The weakest link you have is the tranny. It won't hold very well with mods. The stage 3's with the comp on level one was enough for my tranny to slip. It had 175,000 on it at the time. I would do a t/c and v/b before going above the stage 3's. You could maybe do the stage 4's with the hypertech because of the difference between it and an edge. Put in your gauges, turnbuckle the turbo, and keep an eye on your egt and you will be fine. I am putting in a set of stage 5's and I don't think I will have any problems towing. You just have to feather the right foot according to the terrain.
As far as racing goes, I was on 5x5 and 4x4 at the dragstrip and was turning in the same times more or less. I broke the tires loose on every run and had to stay light on the throttle the whole time because the tires came loose on every shift. With a 4wd your times would have been much better. You will definately kill the 05 with the nozzles and hypertech if the tranny will put it to the ground. GOOD LUCK!
