    305 rwhp give or take a little. Its a hard guess and will have many factors but you should be about that. Some people stock will be there and some people will be lower ive seen numbers all over the place on our cars. If you had a better intake manifold then maybe more.

    Don't get this guys hopes up, look through those mod's again and figure out which ones actually add any power.

    what would you say to a stock car as of horsepower ratings? he has the new intake manifold, a good tune will deff help alot, a lid is a couple horsepower, not sure what he means by borla exhaust (headers? or just catback?) okay maybe it was a little too high, but i would deff say over 305>350 how about that? lol

    he is not going to come close to 350 RWHP.....305 is a good guess. Best thing to do is have it dynoed or go run it at the track.

    I'd say around 330 to 335 would be a closer estimate. But it all depends what you had stock. The consensus is that our cars ranged anywhere from 330 up to 350 stock. Then it also depends on the variance in the dyno... Just sayin...

    Thanks for all the replies. I will have it dyno tested one day and go to the track too. I don't want to put theaders because it will get the car too loud. At time is my DD.

    Not with the A4.


    Again, don't worry about HP numbers. Make sure she runs good and you enjoy it.
    If you need to verify it is running right....the drag strip will tell you MUCH more than any dyno.

    with those mods the motor would be putting out just over 400, you think the auto would be zapping that much?

    edit: yeah probably, i didnt math right
