I have a 98 Trans Am its my daily driver my best run is 13.2 @ 104.78 mph
and i have made many 13.3 runs. My car weighs 3740 with me in it. Its a has everything but the WS6 option, and it is a auto with 2.73 gears. I have an appointment to go dyno tune in about 3 weeks. Do you think I hit 12s after the tune? My mods are in the sig. Also my car hooks up great no spin off the line

prob very high 12s-13 flat....Im noo expert though...depends how much tuning you have left on the table...

I know when I had close to your mods, I was rooting for consistent 12.7s-12.9s but never got around to trying...but mines an M6 with gears...

Some gears would definately get you there, though...since your already at 13.2-3s

I say go for it! Never know whats there to be had in the tuning till you get there I suppose...If you think you can do it, then you can...thats what I aways say...Its been done before...just go to a good track on a good day, you'll see it...

a good tune with the mods you have you should be around 15-20 hp increase. Which inturn is a .1-.2 decrease in your 1/4 mile e/t. My tune on a stock motor with only a lid, bellow, k&n, SLP cold air and SLP loudmouth gave me 10 RWHP and that was on a humid day down here in Florida. Make sure if you do tune to go to a reputable shop that will dynotune it so that way you know what your car is able to do. I was running 13.0 consistantly with my mods until one low humidity night i finally got her into the 12's. So just get some radials and if the track is real sticky try loading the stall some maybe to like 1000 RPM's or so, cant go to to high with the stocker. Also i felt my gears made the biggest difference so you might want to invest in some. 3.73 is the way to go with the A4. Have fun and good luck.

That would definately get you there after the tune...
