    I am not the best one to answer your ? but you need to give more info like:
    budget?
    a4 (and stall) or m6
    gear?
    DD or track?
    Intake?
    exhaust?
    Etc....

    You know if you do hit 450 you will need other supporting mods or shit will start to break.

    Not trying to come across as a smartass but give everybody more details on what you currently have and they can be more help. I am also gonna do a H/C upgrade soon and gonna go TEA ported TFS or AFR for heads if I can swing it. Otherwise PRC 5.3's. Still undecided on cam.

    as for "turn key" do you plan on driving the car like a daily driver or just weekend duty?

    Well I'm making 405rwhp and 390rwtq with the LS6 heads and Cam. GM part numbers 88958622(heads) and 12480033(cam). All my other mods are very similar to yours and I've got a stock rear gear of 3.42 am assuming yours to be the same. I know this isn't the 450 mark you were looking for but a couple more minor mods and you'd be right in your ballpark.

    I just bought a head and cam combo and most people with the set up I bought run between 430 to 450 HP with supporting mods like myself includeing a Fast 90/90. This set up is very street friendly as well and has an awesome power and torque curve.

    I bought a tsp 230/232 604/604 113+1 lsa with Ported PRC stage 1.5 heads. I am also going to run a Fast 90/90 combo. Look to my signature for the rest of my mods.

    When you get your 9", get at least 4.10 gears with this set up to ensure you get the most out of the cam. Don't waste your money with 3.73 gears with a 6 speed.

    PRC= Precision Race Components.

    good brand but more of a budget brand. I have heard alot of good about them and they are alot cheaper than dart or afr.

    If it is going to be some what of a DD car I would say PRC stg. 2 LS6 heads and around a 230 duration cam with 112 LSA since your a M6 car.
