    need help with a street/strip setup for a 02 ws6

    Ok guys here it goes i have a 02 ws6 that is bone stock and yes it is automatic i would like to do the typical bolton's but i also want the the best bang for the buck. I have done some research on parts that i think would be a nice choice but would like some feed back. I am mostly into straight line performance so here is my list of parts i think would be a good choice. subframe connectors, strut tower bar, traction bars, lid, maf,throtle body, programmer, thermostat, midlength headers, dont want long tubes am afrad of clerance problems, mabey a stall cant deceide on true duals or a catback, and some random tech cats and maybe a msd spark box i do want to keep it street legal orther than that i cant really think of anything else that would not have me tear in to the motor and i am trying no to do that because of money problems i am looking to spend arond $3500 on the build thanks for any help or feed back u could give me

    I don't think there is a such thing as traction bars for your car. Skip the MAF, Programmer, and MSD spark box also. Strut Tower Brace is optional. They don't do a whole lot on our cars but add weight. Midlength headers are an appearance mod, they won't add much HP over the stock manifolds.
    Do LT headers, 3" ypipe, Magnaflow catback, SFCs, ported and polished stock throttle body, lid, stall converter, T-stat (if you want), and a Frost tune.

    Cutlass is right on the money, and you could also look into a new carrier and gears, and a ls6 intake if your car doesn't have it (I think it does though). Without a h/c upgrade, Frost can set you up with a tune, and it'll cost less than a programmer and your car will run better. Any questions about brands and such, just post them or search the stickys and we'll get you setup in no time.
    It's not how fast you can go. It's how fast you can get there.

    A stall will be your best bang for your buck on an A4. Also need a tranny cooler. You are correct knight, being he has a 2002, he has the LS6 intake already.

    If the car is going to see a lot of track time with sticky tires, you'll also need to consider upgrading the rear. Don't waste your time and money trying to upgrade the 10 bolt. Instead, look into a 12 bolt, Dana or 9" with 3.73 gears and a good posi unit. More of a necessity than a "bang for your buck" kind of mod.

    Agree. The Kooks LT's I installed several weeks ago have great ground clearance. Our car is stock ride height though with little to no chance of ever being lowered.

    thanks for all the replys guys, but if i was going to do just the minor basics u all susgested would a tune really pull out all the extra power from that or would i have to get a tune each time i add a new part ?and one of my other question is i know there is all kinds of debates on which parts are the best my biggest one is on the lids i cant decide if i should go with a whisper motorsports, a fast toys performance or a m.i.t lid from my research all 3 are great brand but is one any really better than the other

    For a fun street/strip setup. I would go with headers and 3500 stall. This can be DD and have fun on the weekends. With the A4 this should not give the 10 bolt many issues. For the track I would find some salad shooters. Then run ET Streets out back. You can run 12.5,.4,.3 in the 1/4 with headers,3500 stall and ET Streets based on my location. And that was with 2.73's.


    Headers.. Pacesetter coated 370
    Stall 3500 TCI.. 530
    ET Streets (2).. 336
    True Duals.. 150
    total 1386

    I found the salad shooters 93-97 4th gen wheels for 50. So in the end 1436 and you have money to spend elsewhere.

    A lid is a lid. DYNO results show that they all pretty much have the same net gains. Pick one you can get the best deal on.

    When my car had minor boltons a tune was worth .3 and 3 MPH in the 1/4.

    I have a 98 A4 w/ ws6 intake and volant with modified ws6 style hood.
    I would get a P&P throttle body cheap mod and will help with a intake like a lid or volant.
    I have a 160 stat but if you plan on going out in weather under 40 degrees get a 180 stat. LT's are a good bang for your buck there are may bargain brands like pacesetter and upper lever like QTP, and KOOks just depends what you wanna spend. I also have ASP underdrive pulleys and 3.73 gears in the rear to replace the 3.23's and what a difference. After the LT"S get a tune and it will make a difference. Have then tune your tranny, mine launches hard and hits like a brick in the 1 -2 shift and set shift points to 6k rpm to keep the revs up. A stall is a great mod just gotta make sure you get one that goes with future mods such as cam sice. I have BMR drop spings, agx shocks, sponh sway bar set,uni strut tower, lcs's and panhard bar for launch and cornering. A tranny tune makes it a new beast especially with gears. JHust depends what you want. Stay away from Fast intakes till you have cam/heads or it's more money that gain.
