    What should come next......

    Currently I have SLP fan switch, SLP loudmouth setup, SLP lid, ported t/b, t/b bypass, k&n filter, SLP cold air kit, no cats, subframe connectors, UMI torque arm, smooth bellows, EGR delete. It's an A4, 2002 LS1.


    What could i go with next as a decent upgrade, but without breaking my pocket. I would love to get headers + Y pipe, but that's like 500 bucks, not including labor to install. Are there any other cheap but effective upgrades i could get?? Help me out............

    With the loudmouth, I wouldn't recommend headers.

    I say a nice 3600 stall for the tranny. Although that is gonna be pricey too.

    And I would recommend not ordering from SLP anymore.

    I agree that a stall should be the next performance mod, but won't that cost more than $500, which the OP is already saying is over his budget?

    All the SLP items i have are not directly from SLP, i've gotten some from ebay and LMPerformance at a great price.


    So basically there are no more cheap upgrades i can do?? Would a Ypipe on a stock exhaust manifold help any?....or waste of cash? Or what about some ARP underdrive pulleys?

    Also, just a guessing question, but with the mods i have, can anyone guess more or less what HP I have, or could have. Thanks.

    The price isn't the problem, it is the parts.

    I'm not planning on going crazy on SLP parts lol. I've heard about their stuff. Especially their MAF's. That's besides the point tho..............back to topic

    Are the ARP pulleys worth the extra cash? And what hp should i (more or less) looking at, honest guesses.

    I have an UD pulley....but I can't say what it was worth.
    I wouldn't have it if my car was my only car though.

    Your mods....305-310RWHP through the automatic. I wouldn't worry too much about how it dynos though, and concern yourself more with how well it runs and drives.

    Save until you can get a stall. Thats the next logical mod really.

    With stall comes the tranny cooler, and i don't have space to place it with the cold air setup, anyone here have it placed on their cars along with the cold air??

    You probably could mount it down below the front head lights, there's plenty of room down there.

    I mounted my catch-can down there, there's lots of room.

    I don't see how air would be able to hit the cooler from back there, pics??

    No pictures that would do you any good, i would suggest you remove the headlight/s( more room on the passenger side) and take a good look. There's always air flowing through the fog-light opening, and at the bottom it's louvered, plus air is also flowing through the 2 openings in the nose of the car. So you can mount it flat at the bottom with it spaced up 1/2" or so, or make some mounting straps to mount it up-right behind the fog light opening.
    I don't see any problem with mounting it either way.
