    Not really worth it if that's all your doing. Stall if your an A4 would be cash better spent I would think. I did both, and a few other things. But at the time I had some liquid money for mod's. Ring and Pinion (may I suggest Motive) with install kit was about 290.00. Synthetic gear lube was 22.00. Install charge and shim kit was 200.00....500.00 bucks can get you a decent stall and if you can swap it yourself, so much the better. Gas mileage will suffer a little. And be prepared for a little rear-end noise, mine's quiet enough but I hear some others aren't so lucky. Not that I can hear much over my exhaust and stereo, or worse all that and the tops off. Not sure how much having your pcm reset will cost as I had mine done, then had it dyno tuned. Tom Wong @ Wong's Performance did a GREAT job for any portland/vancouver guys that may read this. Also some SOTP performance gains can be had simply by upping the shift pressures and shift points. Hope some of my rambling was helpful

    A Stall is a Stall speed torque convertor. I suggest the search function to fully understand it's function. And umm, I didn't see the 3.8 option. Not sure it's worth the cost vs Performance gains on a stock V6, Turbo'd... That's a different issue. Actually, I would have to say I agree with Y2k. Not worth the cost.
