    Badillac replied to a thread A4 vs M6 in Firebird / WS6
    When I launched on the T/A I would rev it up to about 3k and try to find that sweet spot between dumping it and bogging it, though I bogged it more often than not. Best time I ever ran was in Steele, AL, 13.5 @ 105 on street tires with a lid and cutout. I ran all the time back home but we only...

    yeah I tried putting a lens cleaner disc in there but since the CD player won't even read the disc, it's futile. Yeah, I hear you about replacing the whole system. Today, I just discovered that one of the 4" speakers in the rear of the car is blown. Now, I gotta search for replacement for that.

    Well, I would never do it when an Fbody was still sporting the original 10 bolt rear. That's just asking for trouble. I've installed a 12 bolt in our 6 speed to remidy that issue, as well as ditched the stock aluminum driveshaft for a steel piece. Now I don't worry about it. But the T56 is...

    I used to think it was bad in the ls1 f bodies, dumping the clutch in an ls2 v is even worse. So much so that I've been told to never dump it at any rpm, even in the 2k range as you'll induce teeth rattling wheel hop and very easily shatter the diff.

    Hmm, I got 20 city and 26 highway with my 3400 stalled auto, and that highway MPG was cruising 75 mph. Our 6 speed does 21 city, and has gotten 30 highway at slower speeds, but at 75 mph it drops to 27-28ish. I've never experienced all that much difference in mpg with either version......1 or 2...

    Well I dropped the tranny pan and changed the filter and some of the fluid today. It was certainly due and I wanted to share some pictures with you. This is a 2000 T/A with 66k on her and I believe this was the first time the filter and fluid have been changed. See the Old and New fluid side by...

    Nice, looks like our old El Caminos. Must be in the factory tuning. Another thing that would help is a good set of 243 heads or even 317 heads that have some porting done.

    thats a focus error so something is going on with the reader...could finally be going out on you. Have you popped a cleaner disk in it to see if that helps or not? You will more than likely need a new CD player...so replacing the system is looking more and more attractive for your situation lol

    On a different note: Anyone have a Monsoon system where the CD Player is giving you an E20 read error? Aside from replacing the unit, do you know of any quick fixes? The first time I sprayed purified air in there, the CD player worked perfectly fine immediately thereafter. I thought all was...

    I've always used stealth boxes and have zero complaints or reservations about them...cannot beat them for the bang or the buck in my opinion. Last one I had was an MTX 10 hooked up to a 1000w Kenwood amp. Think it was like 750rms or something like that...when people were in my car they thought I...

    I view it as the best of both worlds lol if I can blow the doors off cars and get 27-28mpg I see it as a huge win...even though I rarely ever get that mileage unless I take it on a trip. Most of the time its 20-24mpg which is still WAYYYYY better than the 14-16 my truck averages :rotfl:

    Don't get me wrong, the fun factor might sway a few people. But performance wise, A4 is it. Just my humble opinion. Ya gotta admit it Pat, when we have these types of cars and what we do with them..the MPG isn't a factor. We just try to justify it by saying we get good mileage :D

    I dont disagree with anything you said.

    Once again, It's all on preference. Dumping a clutch isn't all that. Remember the cost of a clutch every time you decide to dump it :chuckles: I can get just as much off my tires as you can with an M6. In fact, If you time it right, which I have, you can get rubber up through 3rd. And all I have...
