I have heard this will be the case, but nothing for sure.

Hi I ran the F103 rear foams for a bit and yes it was better and they outlast the fronts pretty well but I cannot justify the extra cost.. I only run the standard Kit foams and I get fantastic results with them.

If you're going to do that you may as well run the wide front end as well. You car will be like a tricycle, since the rear will be 200mm and the front 180 with the 104 front end.

Wider will be faster, if it's allowed.
