    In this order

    These two are pretty much suspension necessities on these cars.
    - Sub-frame connectors
    - Lower control arms and relocation brackets


    Are you A4 or M6?

    A4 - the absolute best bang for your buck performance wise is a stall. Hands down. If anyone argues this, they own a 4 cyl...seriously. You'll also need a tranny cooler to go with it.

    M6 - You already have the basics covered with LTs and exhaust. The next logical step would be a lid. Any lid mfg is fine. Most go with SLP. One of the few things SLP did right.

    Since your car is a 99, you could upgrade to the LS6 intake. You currently have the LS1 intake if it's still stock.

    The only difference between your 99 and the 00+ lids is an air hole for the air pump. Other than that, it is the same lid. The hole is a 1-1/8" dia. hole on the '00-02 air lid. You just need to get a plug for that hole.

    Are they a sponsor here? I'm not sure. If they are, cool...if not, I would recommend contacting Mark at www.kyspeed.com.

    His prices are hard to beat and he offers free shipping! Great guy to deal with and recommended by many on here.
    It's on jackstands.

    If you already have an SLP lid, there is no need to purchase another lid. A lid is a lid and they all offer about the same amount of performance for our cars. Some fit better than others and some have a little different "look" to them. Other than that, if you already own the SLP lid, you are good to go! Just get a nice air filter like an Amsoil
