    So many options not enough money!!!!

    I would like you guys input on this. I was thinking about either replacing my intake manifold and getting a dyno tune or putting a 391 gear in my 04 goat (a4) what do you guys think would be the better option? Thanks for the help......

    Thanks guys im going to take your advise. I found a place in ga that is offering a special. Buy the headers, free installation and free dyno tune. Do you guys know any place that sells good high flow cats. I will need to get the cats for the long tube headers. Thanks again.

    Stall hands down the best mod done to an A4 Goat.

    magnaflow hi flow cats for $65 each through summit racing. even with the hi flow cats have your tuner turn off the rear o2s and also drop or ditch the torque managment

    Sarge, I know what I'm doing, so with jackstands and the exhaust already dropped how much time hould I plan on to swapout stalls?

    ok, sounds a lot better than I thought, I haven't had the pleasure of dropping a new goat tranny yet....hopefully by the end of next weekend I'll have the new paintjob buffed, the interior back in and the stall installed

    Huge difference. The torque getting to the ground through the stall is unreal. Best mod for a A4 is a stall. Don't forget to fill it up with fluid first !

    while I think about it, how full do I make it and about how many quarts do I need for a filter change?

    Takes me 13 quarts for the entire thing. I have a remote spin on filter and a cooler so I would think without those items it would take about 11 quarts total.

    The more beers the easier the install and a walk around the block.
