    A 12 bolt, sfc's, lca's, shocks, sticky tires, LS6 intake and bottle. You need the ground work to support and to get the most from FI. You can get some of theese items used for cheap. Then when you get another chunk of cash get the pro-charger and headers.

    And keep the current transmission until you are done. Then you can decide which you would rather have. Many M6 owners decide that an A4 is the way to go. Fewer A4 owners decide that an M6 is the way to go.

    I'd only go A4 if my left leg was chopped off or I got seriously into drag racing. Otherwise M6 rules on the streets!

    You'll have alot of fun regardless of how you decide to go... some people love superchargers, some people l,ove turbos, some people love bottles. when it all comes down to it, fast is fast regardless of how you did it. but it's never fast enough.

    Here is my dilemma... I have a 99 trans am. My family has owned the car since it was brand new. It is in amazing shape although it does have 83 thousand miles on it. I have about 3 grand saved up so far towards some kind of work. So far its completely stock except for SLP cat back exhaust.

    Here are my two ideas... I was thinking about swaping the A4 for an M6 (mainly cause it would be fun to drive... I'm not really concerned with track times) but is that really worth the money?...
    or my other idea is to keep it automatic and invest in a turbo kit or supercharger, then save more money to have it installed.

    Any thoughts?

    You could find a used turbo or supercharger kit in the for sale section for a good price.

    I have an A4 and I think SC are the way to go.....I may get one soon. I think a SC is easier to install/tune. I have a 3000st Yank and I have major traction issues off the line as it is. A SC makes little or no boost at low rpm (which is where I dont need anymore power) and the boost maxes out at the upper rpm's where I could use it the most. The STS turbo is great but the intake running up the length of the car and under the axle (I believe) is a death sentence to me...especially where I live and turbo installation in the engine compartment is a royal pain in the a$$ and I'd have to get rid of my longtubes.
