vcm or vararam or whatever other OTR intake is made + kooks mids + custom tune = game changer for your car, pass emissions, no expensive connection pipe for headers and no custom fabbing either......probably best bang for buck starting mods you can do

Gone -'04 GTO A4 2.5" custom exhaust, sweet thunder muffs, H pipe, Z06 heads, Baer brake it, 20% tints, torrid red, AEM brute force intake, tuned

Funny how people still over look that...

You can get the K&N CAI if you wish. Rotofab makes one as well with the availability of a dry filter.

The MACE tune (see above thread posted) is a worthy investment if you have the coin. If you don't, save up and throw your old 'tune' out the window. MACE will customize your tune to your preferences. They also sell a manifold spacer that's supposed to help power delivery as well.
