The only advise I would give about this, is if you are running on a surfing budget for wake upgrades, spend the money on ballast, not the tabs.
The surf tabs are not needed for a properly weighted boat. If you don't have enough ballast, they will make a marginal wake a little better. However, if properly weighted for a great wake, you will not need tabs at all.
