Hey guys I just sold my "03" Cobra and I am wanting to buy a LS-1 F-body and mod it. I would like to buy a nice 98 a4 ta. From there I would like to start doing some bolt-ons. I was thinking 3.73 gears, maybe a 3600 stall?(is this to big for a car that I would like to drive a lot), full exhaust, subframe connectors, some intake stuff, a good tune, and I would like to stay away from it but I might put a small shot of nitrous on it. I would only be running a 1/8 th mile at my local track but occasionally a 1/4 on the road. I am only know 1/8th mile time does any one know what kind of times I could expect with or with out the spray. I am not set on anything so I am open to suggestions. Thanks for the help.

Alot of people tend to shy away from the 98's due to the perimeter bolt heads and the Pcm is a little differant than the later years.
I don't think a 3600 would be too big, expecially if you throw a cam in it

Thanks for the input.
Forgive me for my ignorance but what year did they change the heads and how much performance difference is it. Oh yeah Pcm is the computer right? lol I am trying to keep up with the lingo

yea your on the right track. try to get an 01-02 if possible but a 99-00 will work fine. def. stay away from the 98's. i've worked on a few and have buddies with them, and they all hate them. the only big difference on the 01+ i it comes without an EGR & with an LS6 intake, the computer has a little better operating system also. that can be changed if your tuner knows how (except on a 98')

Just wondering... why did you drop the cobra?

I buy and sell a lot (Pretty much I drove it for a year and was blessed with the chance to sell it and only lose about $500) and I really like my LS-1 car I sold so I figured I would find another.
