Stock 02 A4 2.73 gears
Here's the results of some mods to my bone stock 02 Z28.
1st run was bone stock with a dirty paper filter. The car is an 02 Z28 with 57,000 miles and A4. It has 2.73 gears. DA was between 1100 and 1450 for most of the night.
Run 1 was 13.71 at 103.29
I changed to a clean air filter and ran 1 pass. My guess is the old filter had 27,000 miles since the last record of an air filter service that I got with the car was at 29,800 miles. It was in pretty bad shape.
13.54 at 104.82
I changed to a Granatelli lid and ran two passes.
Run 1 was 13.44 at 105.94
Run 2 was 13.41 at 106.21
I then did the free ram air mod and did two more passes.
Run 1 was 13.33 at 106.99
Run 2 was 13.25 at 107.96
Considering that the DA had dropped some while I was running and that the computer probably hadn't fully adapted to the less restrictive intake, my guess is I picked up .2 tenths by having a lid and the free ram air mod. That's 20 hp for a $140. Of course I also got about 20 hp going from a dirty old filter to a new one and that was $12.
I filled up and drove hame and got 30 mpg at 75mph on the highway too. You just have to love LS1 power.
I also got to run an 07 Mustang GT. The guy had an exhaust, an intake and had done a Diablo tune. He ran a 13.42 at 103.88 versus my 13.41. He beat me at the light for the win by about a half a car length. Another 100 feet and I had him though. That was also his best ever run with the car.
Another thing is, I improved almost a full half second and 4.5 mph with spending $150. I think the next half second is going to cost at least 10 times the first half second.

i did the free ram air and lid and picked up.1 in the 1/8. headers picked me up .4 in the 1/8 for $500, stall .3 for $500!

I turned the ASR off. I clean the tires with a light burnout.
I held the RPM's at around 1200, eased into the throttle so that by the 60' mark, maybe a bit earlier, I was into it all the way.
The track prep was ok, not the best not the worst.

Traction isn't that big of a problem with 2.73's as long as you have decent tires
Lots of good mods out there, and some of them combine- such as intakes and exhaust- a better exhaust will make the intake side work a little better to, the whole engine will flow more air- Nice baseline numbers- lots of potential still in the car-
