    This is almost impossible to answer. Yes you would have more power than a stock T/A but we dont know what kinda traction you would get. I have seen some stock f-bodys run 13.2s-13.4s which you could easily run slower than if you have traction problems. Good news is you should have a higher trap speed lol

    You have more mods than I do, A4 versus your M6, but for comparison our car ran a 12.885 at 107.93 mph a few weeks ago on Hoosier QTP's. Essentially stock, my best was a 13.395 at 106 mph last year on street tires.

    my a4 ss ran a consistent 13.3-13.4 with a decent 60' and a trap speed of 104 that was when it was stock

    i took it to the track last weekend and ran a 12.8-12.9 with a trap speed of 108 and all i have is a lid, cut out, borla cat back, and a great tune

    I'll be the first to admit that I need a driver mod as well.

    both will be on street tires.

    And it is just a friendly comparison between 2 T/A owners.

    Taking it to a track to be safe and legal.


    between the 2 of us I have more experience with driving our cars and he is a new owner. I've also been working on my launches over the summer.

    if he's an inexperienced M6 driver with a stock T/A, he'll probablly run high 13s (crappy launch, slow/early shifts). You should be able to get low to mid 13s easily. If you're really good, you can touch the 12s.

    Well this week end I was going over both cars and discovered why I have a bottoming out problem with my headers. I think my springs are shot! I know it's not the shocks I replaced them last year. We had both side by side and my rear sits almost 3 inches lower then his on a level surface.

    So now I gotta look for shocks. Any recommendations? I want to keep it at stock height.
