    Hmmmm, you say you want a cheap cam...but want a solid axle? Dude, a conversion like that would cost a good amount. Spend wisely...get a decent cam, headers and tune. Then get some Koni rear shocks and drag bags...then see how your times improve.

    all cams are basicly the same price...stock-wicked....Just get drag bags...the irs arent that bad....people are always saying that they are soooo bad...blah blah blah...there are people running 10's with stock irs....its a close design to the z06's and they are pulling 9's with them....solid axle is EXPENSIVE

    Koni adjustables $250, drag bags $100, cam package (incl. springs and pushrods $6-800. Im assuming you intend on getting headers as well?
    Im not a big fan of the aggressive high lift cams.....but a lot seem to like the Comp XE-R lobes in the 224-228 dur. area. Check out ls1tech.com....lots of cam discussion there.

    Put a kit on it and go mid 11's with ALL stock internals ONLY minor bolt-ons!!!

    Your looking at atleast $3500 for some one to fab up a straight axle and install it.

    Yes, I've seen some great # with LS2's & Lunatis grinds. But there won't be anymore stealthness with an agressive idle!!!
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    do they make a shift kit for the 4L60E? and how much does a converter run? and im thinkin about trading my gto for a 2003 cobra because the gto is frustrating me and when selling them they are not worth anything i would hate to do it but its getting to the point were im stressed out what to do with the car?

    You don't need a cam to get out of the 13's. Since you have an A4, a converter will do wonders provided you can get the traction. Easily .5 second.
    Also a tune will help tremendously. Since you don't want to spend the money to do a cam change because it'll be quite a bit over $500. Figuring cam/springs/pushrods/tune, you're looking at about $1000. You'll also need supporting mods like headers/intake/exhaust.

THANKS GUYS FOR ALL UR HELP SORRY I ASK TO MANY QUESTIONS I NEED LIKE A PART LIST AND A $$$ TOTAL OR SOMTHING IN THE $650-$1500 RANGE..
