    well your gonna definitly feel the 3.73 gears from the 3.23's even though your moving up from the 3.23's. Its more noticable going from 2.73's but even though. The SLP lid and cut out will add power no doubt but will not be noticable as the gears. You will get to your power quicker and stay there longer, you will notice it especially on take off. If you haven already get a tune for your gears if you care about your speedo otherwise your good. Dont focuse too much on 0-60 because that comes down to several things, but with good traction you should do better then before no doubt. Your next mods if you have an A4 is stall and tune if not just enjoy the gears, hehe.

    3.73's will wake that car up! It is amazing the difference it makes. You'll wonder why you waited for it!

    if you plan on doing heads and cam i would wait and buy a FAST 92/92 intake, now you are in CA i realy dont know to much about what h/c set you should go with b/c of all that smog crap, im sure there is other people here that can help you out alot more then i can with all that h/c smog laws in CA. i dont know if you car is 100% stock but if it is you need to get a lid as well and a set of SFC

    I just swapped my 3.23 for 3.73 friday. Revs a little higher on the highway but not much more than 3.23's.
    I am doing a 6spd swap in Oct or Nov so these will work well with that till I get the cam and nitrous then plans for a 9" with 4.11 or 4.30's not sure yet.
    You'll like the 3,73's just make sure they retune your shift points for the new gears. I took the car out and hit the gas it dowshifted into second on the highway and banged off the revlimiter. They went in and bumped my idle a couple hundred rpm to off set the pulley for charging the alt and 1st shifted ok. Going into get it fixed tomorrow.

    If your going cam and heads w/ the rumpty rump your not going to be smog legal accept that now. Unless your doing worked heads and small cam like me in the future you need a stall.
    And howdy local I got some friends out your way.

    Well first off the cam biggest that would wrok is a 224 cam. If you stay smog legal you can't get headers, and that screws up the potential of the cam, and shorties don't provide gains just looks. I have a buddy who has a 224 w/ stock manifolds but he has no tune so I have no idea what he is making. No smog shop will smog you if you get a fast, at least you would have to keep the egr/air. Your best bet is finding someone who will overlook visual but that is a voyage that you have do on your own, those smog guys are out there. Quite frankly the smog laws are bullshit, my car gets almost 2mpg better w/ headers(and high flow cats) yet it's illegal

    Best combo for small cam that I have learned recently for small cam, is more compression over better flow. So for me getting worked 5.3's I sacrifice flow over 243's but w/ a smaller cam it can't utilize the flow anyway since it's smaller has less duration etc.
    Smog legal biggest 224/224 114
    manifolds
    keeping air/egr
    or you can by bass that and go stall and gears get mid 12's, i'm stubborn and went heads only (absolute stock sound) and hoping for mid high 12's

    Oh ok kool that sounds big for smog leagle does that give a good smog sound? And maybe ill go with that an see if I can get headers maybe I can find someone to overlook those and pass that bitch lol but yea I'm getting the 373s thursday! I can't wait to see I mean feel the diffrence! Now I got one cut out on my right side right under the axel I just got a borla. Muffler with another cut out righe before the muffler if I cut an weld it to the leftside in the same spot is the right will that make any diffrence in sound and airflow and performance?? Or would I lose tomuch back preasure?

    I got a used LS6 intake off a newer TA and got a ported and polished TB and I thing the whole setup costed about 360. the TB was brand new and had all new sensors after sending my core it cost like $120 and the LS6 was like $240 or 250. Fast 92 may give you a couple extra horse but will cost alot more. I plan on doing a Larger Intake(maybe Fast or one of the other new ones that I've seen coming out soon) when I get the forged motor H/C and the 200 shot. until them a LS6 flows good for a mildly modded car for a good price.
