I think I am gonna go ahead and get the fast setup. If I'm spending the money anyway, might as well do it right.

If you have the money and don't mind spending it, I'd go for it. I'm sure you won't be dissappointed either way.

A little change of topic here but better than starting a new thread. What rear-end should I get and where should I get It from? I think I'm sold on the engine part of it all. I know I need to get all that other stuff taken care of first. Suggestions and reasons why please fellas

Everyone has their own personal preferences. Alot go with Moser, mainly because they are slightly cheaper. I don't care for their quality or their customer service, and they don't back their products from my experiences of 10 years ago or so. (long story) So in a nutshell I've used Strange ever since and never looked back. I also like Currie.
After you decide on a manufacture then you have to decide which design to go with. 9 incher, Dana, or 12 bolt.

I keep hearing do 12 bolt

If that's your flavor. I'm personally a 12 bolt fan. Although I have cars with 9 inchers in them, and they are fine.

What is the big differences in launching between those 2?

most will recommend the 12 bolt for A4 and 9" for M6's.

So it's really not a matter of strength if built correctly. Just what works best for you.
9 Inchers are fine too, and you'll see them more often because they are easier and cheaper to adapt to just about anything on the road.

That's an area I'm clueless in. Therefore, I have a ton of research to do on that area

You could take the money you save on not getting the FAST set-up and get yourself a rear end. A new rear end is going to cost you in the ballpark of $2500-$3000 depending on what options you get.
I'd also suggest: sub-frame connectors and lower control arms and relocation brackets for the lower control arms at a minimum for traction help.

Fast set-up will be later down the road so no need to save on that side of things. For the rear-end, I am going to spend that money anyway. I just dont know enough about rear-ends to make that decision w/o research.
This is going to be a long process for me but something I want to accomplish. As everyone else does I will post all my updates with pictures. Actually, first thing will be wheels and tires cause one if my wheels now is leaking air out my tire. Sure I could fix it but I want new ones.
After all that said, please keep your suggestions coming and reasons why.
