Like many decisions there is a risk/reward factor to evaluate. What data is out there to do this? Reward is the increase in power, the risk is no warranty on extremely expensive engines and in my case with a DCT, an expensive tranny. Would just like data to evaluate that ratio prior to jumping in.

Are any of these numbers available?
I would say fuel mileage and tire life are the downsides Rewards on the other hand are never being concerned what is beside you at a stop
