You could get a cheap hand programmer to correct all that. Or, if you have someone that tunes your car... All of it will be affected.

I assume you're an A4?
If so, then if you have 2.73 gears (base Z28 gearing - confirmed by the door tag stating GU2) just be sure to get gears for a 2 series carrier. 3.23 (code GU5, optional for Z28 A4) then you can use standard gears.
FWIW, A4 cars seem to run better with a max 3.73 gear. This is based on the contact area of the gears due to the smallish (7.5") diameter ging gear.
If you are M6 then you already have 3.42's and 4.10's would the next logical step up.67 Camaro: K-K + 797-z (look it up), 454/Th400/4.10 12-bolt = 6mpg, PS/PDB/PW tilt, tach, gauges...

So you want a LM2? I've got the LM1 on my '99 with the SLP Y and cats, factory exhaust manifolds, and if you do any kind of highway commuting, it'll get annoying. Luckily, I've got an aftermarket stereo system in my car, so I just turn it up when the drone starts getting to me
HP? Well I hate bench racing, so to speak, but a fair guestimate, I'd put you around 310

My girl is going to buy me some 3.73s so she says.....lol One of Christmas presents (guitar pedal) wasnt quite what I was looking for so she said those wouldnt be a bad addition to the car. She likes fast cars so I am in luck!
