    Hopefully 3 point SFCs!!

    A4 or M6? A4 Stall, M6 LS7 Clutch Kit or Monster (depending on your driving habits)


    There is a long long list it just depends on how much $$$ you want to spend

    A4 wanna keep it a daily driver. Seriously thinking about some top end work cam, lifters, etc. But don't wanna loose drivability. Any suggestions??? Suspension would be the other direction.

    I'm looking to go wider in the back. Currently got 17x9s all the way around and they just don't do it justice. Anyone know where I could get some 17x10 or 10.5s in the TTMs

    Car looks alot better with the wheels and hood. I have and I could wait to get the rims and ram air hood, completly changes the look. If you want a good DD start with bolt ons. Not sure what you have now but headers, ypipe catted or off road depending on where u live, good catback if you don't have one, LS6 intake, ported TB, UD pulleys, and a tune really help since you can change the shift points. Another way to make the car feel faster without adding hp is swapping the gears out, if you have 2.73's a 3.42 or 3.73 will make a big difference. I had stock 3.23 and swapped to 3.73 and still got 20mpg avg before the cam and really mad the car alot more fun.
    Depending on what you wanna spend you can add a Z06 cam/spring set for like $550 or so with stock stall and get more power and have it feel like stock.
    Or you can get a cam from Texas Speed that's bigger and some springs, pushrods and a 3200 to 3600 stall depending on what you like.

    Looks like the OP has not been on the site since 2011. Probably not going to receive a reply.

    We do have a "for sale" section on the forum and verts do pop up every now and then.

    You need to use a site like photobucket. You upload your pics there and copy/paste the url of the pic.


    You will also need to get your post count higher.
