    Have gears want to add a stall

    Installed 3.73's on my 01 SS A4 would adding a stall too make a big difference on my 1/4 mile times? Also how about a 3400? No other mods.

    Yes and most people will say YES
    Yes a stall will put the motor in the power so to speak when you leave the line. if you race alot most people will probably tell you to go higher on the stall but it is a personal choice so talk to people around here and at your track to see were you want to be.

    3600 for a daily driver or weekend warrior. get a 4000 if you are kinda ballsy like me. i hope you have tires, you will need a drag radial or better to get any kind of traction.

    +1 I'm running a 3,800 and it drives almost stock till you get on it. I'd say 3,500-4,000 will make you happy, plus don't forget to get a tune after you put the stall in

    Like I always say. Stall before gears. And it should be the first mod on an A4.

    I made that mistake, I tried a Yank 3200 stall and the car slowed down.

    Just got off the phone with a buddy that kicks my butt. He uses an 11 inch 2500 stall from Midwest Converters and said he cut a half a second off the 1/4 mile. Does any one have their phone #?. I think I'll try one and let you guys know how it does.

    That doesn't make any sense. MPH maybe, but it will cut almost a second in the 1/4

    I was guessing traction problems too....i went from a 3,000 to 3,800 stall and its like two different worlds........i DO have traction problems now, but that can be solved with a set of sticky tires

    3.23 to a 3.73 take your pick. 3.23 for lots of high way ocasonal trailer around town, 3.42 for a compromise between 3.23 and 3.73 and trailer on the highway from time to time, 3.73 for towing on the highway most of the time, and 4.11's or more if it is going to be off road or in the mud most of the time. These are the fuel economy and use reasons to go with them.
    What are you using the truck for? that has alot to do with what gear you want. By the way you may want to post this question in the rear end section under a new thread because this one is old and you may not get people looking because the title is about something else.

    maybe even higher than 4.11's depending on tire size.....if running bigger tires, lots of playing in the woods and mud, and little or no highway travel I'd even look at 4.30s or 4.56s


    what size tires are you running?

    since your turbocharging it, i'd stick with maybe a 3.90 (it will let you get more out of your boost)

    Do a search, and please don't put anything more than 3.42's. If you go with 3.90's or 4.10's you basically get rid of first gear and now you can start out in 2nd gear (same as your first gear with your stock gears). So essentially you just turned a 6 speed into a 5 speed. That would be a huge waste of money.

    I've explained this before, but most people just can't think clearly when they've had years of experience with 3.42's, 3.73's, 3.90's, and 4.10 gears. The A6 is a different animal. It has a 1.53 third gear instead of the 1.00 third gear in the A4. So the A6 with the stock 2.56 rear gears is the same as an A4 with 3.92 rearend gears.

    I personally like the 2.56 gears. They act like an A4 with 3.90 gears when you run the quarter, but it acts like a manual 6 speed when you are cruising. One of the few cases where you can have your cake and eat it too.

    Good luck.
