    Stall & trany cooler + slicks, you should see 7's. Pick up a Frost tune, and get your 60' time down. Unfortunately, adding power and traction will usually start showing the weaker areas of the drivetrain, with the rear diff. being the most expensive and likely to cause problems.

    What was your 60'? That's where the slicks will help. Better traction = lower 60' times = better overall et's.

    invest in suspension for sure torque arm and the torque arm relocation bracket. a Yank ss3600 stall worked very well for me. on street tires i went from a 8.6 @93mph with a 2.1 60ft to a 7.76 @93mph with a 1.7 60ft peddling it out the hole. could went faster but we got kicked off the track for not having a helmet. bare in mind you hit 7s have a helmet.

    With suspension and exhaust mods on track tires, our car's quarter mile times dropped to 12.885. Mostly stock she ran 13.395 - so yes, tires and suspension will make a big difference in times. However, as already stated, a stall is absolutely the best track mod for an A4 equipped car. Adding a 3,200 stall resulted in a quickest run yet of 12.430.

    Stall > tune > tires > LCA's/panhard/sways/torqure arm/sfc > throttle body

    That'll help cut the 60' time which, as already stated, will improve your et. That's my .02.
