    well the cost of your TA and extra dough will be buying a c6 in 1.5 yrs... the RSX is in the "house fund" on it's own. working two funds here... hahahha c6 fund and house fund...
    I'd be able to drive the c6 as a daily driver in Philly... 402 not too spectacular as a daily. so it's your weekend adventure now for the fair price. I didn't need to dick for every $1-2k with you, since I know you I gave it to you fairly.

    well to be honest if you were to try to sell the 402 you'd get 50cents return per $1 mod spent... folks don't have funds to be spending xxxxxx amount of dollars etc... so I'd rather get your nicely modded TA (you pretty much got all the mods I have minus the 402block and AFR225 heads) treat it nicely for some time then recuperate the dough enough for a c6 low miles in 1.5 yrs. works out best...

    I would too if I live in TX I agree. never thought I'd wanna sell so quickly. I mean I was thinking of moving to Philly in 2 yrs, but the Chicago contract came in unexpectedly with the 20% increase in salary while this local office is closing in 6 months. hell yeah I jumped at the more $$$ opportunity. anyways I'll see ya on Thrusday man... thinking of 10AM... I may have you drive to Irving meet me around here so that I can go to work at 12PM that day... we'll chat...

    yeah for a year or so. but I won't run the TA at the track, it will be the daily... still putting 426rwhp for A4, not bad. I may meet up some of the folks in that area most likely to hang out at the gtg or tracks.

    the closer you are to stock the better chances nothing will break. I would not even be close to stock... the stock A4 stg4 will give in reather quickly, weakest link... I was just the other day on a thread where this guy went through 3 or 4 A4s in 6 months at track I believe.

    I didn't have upgraded heads/cam, nor 90/90... if was only full exhaust and pulley. if you went AFR 205 you'd be 435rwhp, more money, more/better mods, more heat, more stress created more issues.
