    my buddy went 13.2 @ 108 with a k&n only on street tires. No reason why you shouldn't get somewhere near it.

    Yeah that seems to be the average for these cars with an experienced driver.

    Completely stock I ran 13.8 at 102 mph so I would guess 13.3 at 108mph

    Depends on your shifting abilities and the weather.

    Anywhere from 12.7 to 13.4 IMO

    Too many factors involved driving ability, humidity, track conditions, etc... it could be anywhere from high 12s to high 13s my guess would be right in the middle.

    I have a question. If the manual is faster then a auto, why are the auto times typically quicker. Also, in order to get more MPH then the auto, how many people actually see it or is that in theory.

    I believe the m6 is a bit quicker because it is able to get more power to the ground than an a4 because there is less power loss through the drivetrain. Another reason the auto times could be quicker is because they are easier to launch than the manual. Someone correct me if im wrong.

    The M6 can only be quicker in the right hands, and not too many people can really drive a manual to it's full potential.

    Although the A4 uses more power, it'd be very tough to out launch a high stall and outshift the computer.

    Agreed, a m6 will beat an a4 if you know how to drive it untill that a4 gets a stall and shift kit. Your going to beat an auto shift especally with a shift kit.

    You're not going to beat you mean?

    I'd never trade my A4 for an M6 if all i did was race. I know an M6 would be fun, but most of us here know the A4 is tough to beat when it's built, stall, shift kit.

    It's more than just an A4 robs more power they are geared differently too and i'm not just talking about stock rear end gears. Most of the reason you see A4s getting better times is people can't drive a stick they either bog the car down or spin too much. If you are going to race only and are in it for consistency an auto is the way to go but if you can drive a stick is much more fun and rewarding.

    Yes, thanks for the correction. On thestreet the m6 is better IMO cause you have to drive the car but if your going to do alot of racing auto is the way to go.

    my fastest time so far at the track was a 13.5 @ 104, mines an A4 with 77,XXX miles on it, mods in sig, so you would prolly be a little faster
    A4 (2.73 gears), Magnaflow cat-back, Lid, filter, tb bypass, P&P TB

    13.504@104.376

    Great times for that gearing. All you need is stall and some gears for 12's.
