    What's your budget?

    What's your mechanical ability?

    a few simple stuff will be an airlid, exhaust and a tune from Tunedbyfrost.com
    If the car is an A4 get the tune it is well worth it.

    Be aware that the rear ends in our cars do go out even with stock power. So if you start to get in more HP stuff you need to consider upgrading the rear end to a 9 inch or 12 bolt. You will need some suspension upgrades as well specially in the rear to avoid wheel hop. SFC, LCA's and TQ arm are a most. You can have all the power you want but if those tires are not grabbing then you are not taking avantage of all that power.

    Like KMdef9 mentioned we need more info about your goals. Is is the car going to be DD?

    If your drag racing it defineatly go with a torque arm, frost tune and torque converter.

    After that I'd say headers/off road y-pipe (or high flow cats), exhaust, subframe connectors.

    Rearend will be the weak link at this point so if you have the $ go 12 bolt or 9" and a new set of gears.

    Also look up the free mods in the tech section of forum, beyond that it depends on your $ and intentions
