    Build and price, whatcha think?

    Heya guys, name's Jason. I been checking your forum for a while now just never actually posted. Found ya through LS1Tech.com. Before I make a decision on something I thought maybe I'd ask a few good sources for opinions.

    So Im soon to return from my armed vacation in the sandbox and I've been in contact with a performance shop. I dont wanna say the name without first hearing your guys opinions just to protect their reputation in a worst case scenario. Just suffice to know its has an extremely positive rep.

    Anyway, Im asking him to take my stock '02 SS A4, transform it into something even more badass than it already is, and this is what he came back with. Note, I told him I wanted a car that could do mid to upper 11's and still cruise the streets damn near stock. (Basically i asked him to turn my SS into a Z06)

    TrickFlow 220cc As Cast Cylinder Heads-3.9 Bore

    TrickFlow 7.500 Hardened Pushrods
    Yella Terra Ultra Lite 1.7 Non Adjustable Roller Rockers
    VRX4 Camshaft
    GM Multi Layer Steel OEM Head Gaskets- SET
    ARP LS1 Head Bolts
    Power Bond F Body Under Drive Pulley with Gates Belts/GM Bolt

    Comp Drop In Hi Performance Lifters
    180* Thermostat
    NGK TR55 Spark Plugs

    Yank Stealth Converter 28000 Stall Speed
    B&M Trans Cooler
    FAST 92mm Intake Manifold Ported
    Nick Williams 92mm Billet Throttlebody

    Whisper Carbon Fiber Air Box
    GMPP Red Z06 Plug Wires
    Installation of all parts listed
    Custom Tuning VIA EFI Live/DynoJet 224x/Street DataLogging

    5% off Labor for military discount

    Total for all parts/labor- turn key: $9,599.00

    So whatcha think? Honest opinions. Again its a pro shop with a fantastic rep and, from what i've heard, backs up all their builds if/when anything goes wrong.

    I want to contact him back and ask him to inclue a koni/strano shocks/springs setup as well as a stronger rearend and see what he quotes me.

    Dont know too much on the price, sounds good to me being installed and tuned. 9" or 12 Bolt for the rear is a must. I know they sell kits that come with heads, cam, etc. Just talk to badass2000ss, hes a member with a trickflow kit and hes real happy with it. Could end up saving you some moolah.

    PS: Gonna be a crazy ride with that 28000 Stall lol

    Sadly now demodded :(

    I second the greater stall speed converter. I have a reworked A4 with a 3400 stall that locks up at ~ 40mph in the 02. It was fine at first, now it's not enough.

    Bigger stall
    What are the specs on the vrx4?
    If you search ls1tech a few people have been braking there yella terra's and that would save at least $700 off the build price, plus stockers are great. Brake down the total cost of parts because that seems a little high, then again premo shops can charge higher prices.

    Is that what you rely on C5
    If you lived down here in fl you'd probably be at the track during hurricane season if you had the 140mph winds on your back
