    Ya make the car breathe better before the cam.

    Also a stall will make it seem like like a whole new machine. If auto.



    Edit: just noticed it is a formy so it should have the blackwing lid already. Right?

    Or 300....

    I think they should be the first mod on these cars, with an airbox lid right behind it.

    If you run these cars hard without them then be prepared for leaks from t-tops, your door panels to start to crack and all sorts of other screaks and noises to arise.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Are you an A4 or M6? If A4 then a 3400 or bigger stall (+tranny upgrades) AFTER SFC's. You want to be able to close the doors down the road don't you. Also, as stated, if it's a t-top car it'll keep them from being tweaked (to easily) and (over the long term) leaking.
