Street or strip?.......and if you go too high and don't run the right tires for traction when you launch, you will have wasted the $$'s on the converter.
First gear and second gear in the A6 are extremely low, which is why folks are telling you that 4.11's are too deep. To test this, turn off your traction control, shift into gear and power brake with your current gears for just a second, and then release the brake while you floor it.........you will go up in smoke literally standing still. So, if you leave your TC on with a high converter and the rest of your current setup the same, all you are going to do is work your TC harder -- to almost no advantage.
I would not go any deeper than a 2,500 rpm stall converter.....and even then you are going to need a very good, sticky drag slick......and hardened half shafts too.
