Next Upgrade

2013 GT A6 Currently installed:
3:15 GEARS
BOSS INTAKE
ROUSH CAI
BORLA ATAK CATBACK EXHAUST
93 TUNED X4 SCT PROGRAMMER

What would you guys suggest next to increase acceleration and make the low end speed/torque increase? I'm trying to make the car all round faster.

It is a daily driver too...

Converter

And didn't we just go down this road?
Change Rear Gears or stay with stock?

maybe that 90 mm throtle body - easy adaptation with CAI conduit was necessary . Mine made me feel much better

TB upgrade is a waste unless going FI, or to the Cobra Jet Intake manifold, since that Intake requires a bigger CAI and Throttle body.

Well I do not agree in my case. Addition of the larger TB allowed for eliminating the reductor out of my CAI into the original throttle body. Very smooth air flow delivered from CAI post-filter casing directly to TB almost without a diameter reduction ( Air aid reductor/adaptor was rubber, very easy to cut so it fits nicely and comes tapered onto TB inlet).

Did my best MPG with the car since then, both city and hiway. As the only chance on the car since a long time, it probably improved not only capacity (top end power) but also air flow patterns at lower RPM. No proof that the TB is that much godly, but engine is more efficient with gaz nonetheless.

Suspension!

Wait, you want acceleration, so I'd guess gears.

Wrong.


Please stop throwing out suggestions that could lead someone down the wrong road. It's not fair to them or anyone else.

Keyword: guess. I saw your post on the converter earlier, was just throwing out another suggestion. Wasn't trying to point him in the 'best particular direction' for acceleration. Still learning here.
