    Wow so i could see mid 12s with my car with a 32-3400 stall? thats pretty awsome. best i did before major mods was 14.1 in the 1/4mile. THat was with a lid and its extras, LCAs, SFCs, STB and a muffler. cant wait to try with the upgrade .

    Stalls make a HUGE difference with AT cars, eh? So what did she run before headers, or were there any runs. Headers usually net .2-.3 and 1.5 - 3 MPH, from what I've observed.

    Maybe,,,,I did that 12.76 on the stock tires and was fairly easy on it, slowly rolling into the throttle to control wheel spin. A sticky tire would knock an easy 2-3 tenths off that time. I don't see why you couldn't do the same.

    Before the headers, 13.44 at 104 mph was the best it would do. That was with a tune only. Before I tuned it, bone stock it ran 13.70's at 102 mph.

    And while hot lapping. Maybe I should try that sometime. And you had no stall?

    Whoops.. for some reason I forgot the Vigilate 3600 stall too. Got ahead of myself I guess. Usually for A4s, you want to hold the brake and slowly push down on the gas until the back end starts standing up... then hold it there. Once the lights drop.. play around with rolling into the throttle.. hammering it... adjusting tire pressure... every car is different.. just need to find her sweet spot and exploit it.
