Also lucky for you, you have a 2009 auto. The 2008-2010 steptronic can take a lot more torque than the manual tranny or the 2011+ DCT. I'm running meth on my 2008, 65K miles, 3/4 of which were tuned, 10K or so with meth, no problems at all beyond the problems that occurred on even stock cars, not notably the high pressure fuel pump / fuel injectors. The HPFP was replaced twice, the second time with some injectors, and also with a software upgrade @ around 25 or 30K miles, and no problems since. Runs great.
Your plans sound very similar to what I've done with my car (though I don't have nearly everything you listed!). Definitely keep us updated regularly with what you do to the car.
Welcome to the forums! I see you're in the NYC area, so if you have a facebook you can search up "Tri-State 1Addicts" and join if you want to hang out and stay updated with local meets etc. Glad you're home (and with all your limbs
) Thank you for your service!
