    depends...you could go the nitrous/LT headers route or...
    camshaft/springs/LT headers if you're going engine mods.
    if you want a better hooking and stiffer ride; lower control arms, shocks, tires, shifter (if 6 speed), torque converter (if auto). kinda pick what you want for a grand out of those...

    stall = best bang for the buck... and one of the best mods for a A4 car... you will run a half second faster with just a stall...

    Im trying to figure it out, why would the exhuast cut out mess with the tune just curious because im going that route. Cant a tune take into account the mods you have for your car?

    I may be wrong but I don't think a cut out would mess wit you're tune as long as its In the intermediate pipe after you're rear o2s
