    true, doing this just once, I think the 402 is gonna be a torque monster after
    doing the heads on it too, so yeah 400s forged the way to go!

    wow, heh, Lous. when u think my 10bolt is about to break? what power/tq range? let's say at the track scenario since it's more aggresive situation, I mean i do peel out now and then but not as hard as i would at track..

    Spinning won't hurt your rear end....it isn't hooking.

    It depends on the situation. The launch is the most abusive thing to the 10 bolt. With the auto, the rearend gets preloaded unlike the M6.
    There are 11 second A4's on the stock rear. Might even be some 10 second autos.

    Although it will more than likely break sooner than later as you build the car up and leave that back there.
    Impossible to give an 'exact' answer on when it will go.

    hmmm, I'll take it easy for now, it's me daily driver, but looking at getting a house like in Nov/Dec, after that I'll leave it home throw the heads on etc etc... torque arms, ... and maybe the 12bolt. but I like to take time modding it, not like all in one year, it keeps the excitement alive as I mod stuff..

    If you want to save a little $$, you can get the exact same thing from LS6 heads. Thats exactly what they are. LS6 heads. Just with bigger valves, and better springs. Your talking about $100-200 for the heads on ebay. Maybe another $600 for the new intake and exhaust springs, retainers, and valves. Here's a couple of links for ya.

    http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...be4f4ba9555094 for the valves $17/valve

    http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...be4f4ba9555094 the comp cams RPM upgrade kit. Starts at $291

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Brand...QQcmdZViewItem only $204 right now.

    All this, and you get to choose your pushrods, lifters, springs, retainers, intake and exhaust valve size. Its your package. Plus it doesnt cost a whole heck of a lot to get the heads machined.

    L92 will still be cheaper for the flow rate and like I said can still be machined later if you tihnk its needed to go above the 330cfm rating.LS6 heads from GM are 899$ i believe

    u know anybody that has them?
    what is a better heads block? is it the ration intake/exhaust, like the higher the number the intake the more the number of exhaust cfm? cause the cfg intake on L92 is higher than AFR heads but the exhaust much lower therefore AFR flows better because of slight lower intake cfm but much bigger exhaust cfm rating so the ration intake/exhaust is higher. is my analysis right?
