    I'm a little different than most, I didn't want the nasty sound in my daily driver. I went with Thunder Racing "Cheater" head and cam package. Car went 12:30s at 114 and sounded bone stock. I like the surprised looks after I win.

    are you an a4 or m6 car? I have the 228r on a 114 in mine and I'm a stalled a4. Pretty decent all around cam. Definitely could be daily driven and there's no doubt you're cammed when you fire it up. The 112 will chop even more at idle but being an auto I wanted the 114 lsa.

    mine at idle with the cutout open
