The general answer to that question here would be to chip it (APR/GIAC) and get the DV. Thats what gives you the most bang-for-your-buck.

what a4 do you own (4 or 6 cyl.)

if uve got the 1.8t, chip it

if you have the 2.8 i have no suggestions, maybe an super charger thats spendy though.

'03 would be either the 1.8T of the 3.0. Same deal though, if youre 3.0, you can do exhaust, suspension, chip (wont do much to the V6), and beyond that-supercharger ($5k).

its a 18.t, chippin it is what i was leaning for, but would that void the warrenty? and as for dropping it, if i hadnt alredy ripped the front damper off of it due to tallahassee sucking at a lot of things (parking spaces and roads being the two ones im leaning towards here) i would

i really want to do exhaust, but i really dont want a droning ricer sound (ive always built and raced mustangs, so this is all new to me) and what air induction kits are out there/are they worth it?

As far as chipping goes, go for it! It will not void the warranty, as almost all dealers will not see past the encrypted software. Company-wise, there is APR, GIAC, REVO, and MTM. Many people go with what dealer is closest to their house. Exhaust...always good. Companies like APR, Neuspeed, Millitek, Borla, etc. will all produce good gains (~15hp). NONE with the ricey sound. Droning is not an issue with most of these...none that i know of.

ya you just have to turn it off before you go into the dealer and youll need a DV for it due to the extra pressure on the turbo..the stock one just plain sucks..

thats what i figured about the DV, can you use a blowoff/bypass valve? or rather, can you set it up so that it vents to the atmosphere or does it need to be vented back into the intake track?
