    A tune is another thing that you will need done. I also suggest sub frame connectors.
    The cam your getting is 4 degrees bigger than mine. Its one of the best "street cams" out there.

    For rwhp, expect around 390-400

    I have it and will be doing heads as soon as the weather warms up, my car is an A4 and I went with the 228R on a 112 lsa. It drives great and has a nice lope to it. You will like it!

    A4 with no stall and a 228? Car has to be wanting to drive through the breaks.

    Never said it had no stall, 3400 stall/Performabuilt Trans. You are right about needing one, I think it would drive like sh&t. I am actually going to move up to a 3800 when money allows. I would say a 3200 would be the smallest I would go, 3600-4000 for best performance on a street/strip car. I should have mentioned the converter because it is a major factor when you add a cam. Its like taking a sh&t without toilet paper, you can do it, but you would rather not.

    just about have everything if the gasket kit comes with the head bolts. Stock ones are 1 time use only.

    Sounds like a nice setup and as mentioned make sure you get new head bolts.
