headers and Y would be a decent next step unless it's an auto then do a stall first then headers/Y.

throw a cam in it, with the headers and ory.

Sub-frame connectors first for sure.
What is your main goal with the car?

oh and btw, currently I have an A4 with the optional 3.23's would a stall and gears be a better bang for the buck??

If you already have headers then yes a stall is your next step, the gears you have are plenty especially with a stall. After install fees of your stall of choice that will bring you right around a grand. Not a stall expert but most go with a 3600, it seems people complain with anything under a 3200.

subframe connectors are great for autocrossing, if you just have it as a daily driver/weekend warrior then sub frames are further down the road. If you were a manual cam and headers, since your an auto stall and headers would yield best results.

BTW thanks for answaring my questions

You got it,
Go on LS1tech.com and look in the classifieds. You can find a nice used ceramic set for around 300 shipped, you might even get lucky and have the ory included. Pacesetter, hooker, and jet hots are all "affordable headers". Kooks if your rich and Slp if you got pawned. If you have a stock catback yuo can find them used on ls1tech as well, or depending on emissions laws you could see about putting on duals. Start going to different muffler shops and ask them how much they would charge for a custom setup. I got lucky my exhaust guy is cheap.

Stock my car put down 288rwhp. With lid, ported throttlebody, Ls-6 manifold, Jet hot headers with duals I put down 338hp/355tq. Now the manifold only helps way up top and gave me like 6-8rwhp. If you truly don't se yourself putting that stall in for a while, get a small cam like a 220 or something that won't make your a4 unliveable but will probably net you another 20 maybe 30 rwhp. Ls-6 $300 6rwhp, small cam $300 20 minimum rwhp and power throughout the curve.
my car is an a4

oh, ok yeah not sure yet exactly if i'm gonna have to put the stall off or not, I need to see where I am money wise by april, so ya never know its still a bit out until spring, BTW sharp look'in Z those are some nice #'s for your mods
