    Setup, take a look

    Ok, I believe this is what I'm going to go with. Let me know what you think.

    Long Tube Headers
    Off Road Y Pipe
    Exhaust
    Lid
    K&N Filter
    Cams
    Heads
    Tune

    That's All. Will I need a new rear end with these? Moser 9 perhaps? Or will I be ok with stock. This car is still going to be my daily driver. I need some suggestions for headers/ory, exhaust and my cams/heads. THANKS

    What's this going on? Is the car 6spd or A4? Will you be going to the track or just street? Plan on drag radials? Lol. Sorry for all the questions but it help us help you.

    If you put sticky tire's on it your rear end won't last very long and with heads and a cam your not gonna get traction with normal street tires

    Long Tube Headers Always a good idea. What kind of budget are you on? You could get anything from Pacesetters to Kooks...Off Road Y Pipe
    Exhaust Cat-back? Duals? Lots to choose from...
    Lid Most definitely. Look around as you can sometimes find these CHEAP.
    K&N Filter I would spend the money elsewhere...
    Cams One cam only... A lot of variables here.
    Heads Again, lots of variables...especially price.
    Tune Most definitely after the heads/cam/LTs.

    The rear is a good idea as well. The best advice I can give you is to set realistic goals on price, power, reliability and use (strip, auto-x, etc) and ask more specific questions. Like: "What headers will give me good gains on a lowered, heads/cam car and won't break the bank?" If you have an ultimate goal, good planning will save you lots of drama...trust me.

    Yeah go big with the cam from the get go, i definately regret going with a somewhat mild cam, it leaves you wanting something bigger.

    I suggest going with a heads/cam kit, most come with hardened pushrods, valvesprings, ls2 timing chain, ls6 oil pump,gaskets, head bolts.
