Listen to the advice you've been given on the tuner. You've said you don't want to break the bank twice now but the tune isn't the place you want to cheap out on no matter what H/C package you go with. Do what it takes to find a great tuner or I promise you'll regret it in the long run.I'm also limited when it comes to great shops, tuners in my area. There aren't really any great ones I know in my area so I don't want to get to indepth with things.
First thing to do is make a plan and stick to it. The more times you change your mind, the more money you'll waste.How would the 210 heads be with that camshaft you linked? How much extra HP/Torque should I expect from a setup like that?
To be honest, I'm really a noob at this stuff. Just looking to add some really nice power to my '04 A4 without breaking the bank. I'm also limited when it comes to great shops, tuners in my area. There aren't really any great ones I know in my area so I don't want to get to indepth with things.
Would I need a stall converter for max benefits on the A4 or would changing the heads and cam to that setup be good with everything else stock?
At the moment I am completely stock other than a Diablo hand tuner, which doesn't do much at all, if anything.
Maybe I would be better off going the supercharger route??
Thank You!First thing to do is make a plan and stick to it. The more times you change your mind, the more money you'll waste.
In terms of the entire combination, set the goals, stick to it and the end result will be impressive.
Naturally aspirated usually is the best bang for the buck when a budget is the number one concern. Any form of forced induction has the mandated peripherals such an expensive fuel system and aftermarket engine management that can double or triple the initial cost.

I would love to gain 100 plus HP to the rear wheels and still have it be a reliable daily driver that responded great under normal driving conditions.
If you could list/PM me everything I would need for a killer head/cam swap that would be awesome.
Here is my setup, I have added 3200 stall since last update on this thread, but I do daily drive it in summer when weather is nice.What setup did you run?
If you do any heads/cam you will need a tune no matter what or it will not run or idle. Tunes are about $500 or so.Just want the biggest extra HP/Torque for my 2004 GTO with a heads/cam package without breaking the bank finacially and having to do major tuning to the car, etc.. to make it run right over stock.
Thanks for any info!!
