Hey guys yesterday i was goin through my audi fund :) lol my savings and i noticed that i have about 1500 bucks.... i have a 2000 FWD 1.8T 5 speed... i was wondering what i can spend it on i mean i cant spend it on a turbo or any thing cause like im fwd have no traction control thats just seting my self up for traction problems... i already have a chip...dv....intake... m3 lip spoiler...s4 17 inch wheels.... and magna flow muffler.... i was thinking maybe like a rs4 body from and some sort of sides and a euro s4 rear if possible.. but then i thought wait its probly gonna add alot of weight making my car slower than it already is... u guys have any ideas what i can spend this money on? i was thinkin coilovers or something but i mean i alraedy have problems with scracthing my stock bumper and stuff from how low it is.... so yeh let me kno what you guys think

only pc16 needs a fmic...

you could benefit from a new exhaust and clutch, but they arent required..

well I have the fwd plus a tip so I think I'm in even worse shape....What is all this about traction control? Because of the extra power the wheels spin a bit? Is that what you mean? If I was to go k04 technically couldn't I just get the turbo / software? or would I need fuel upgrades and exhaust and a whole buncha other shit? Because if its a matter of wheels spinning oh well I can feather the throttle.....

So you dont even have to run a fmic at all with the kit from awe? Im lookin to do KO4 possibly.

no. it would be helpful, as well as an exhaust sytem, but both are not required. Depending on how you drive your car, a clutch probably wont be needed either. i have a GIAC K04 on my car with stock clutch, no FMIC, and my car has 110000 miles on it. i do however have an exhaust, but i ran the k04 on stock exhaust for 5000 miles and it preformed beautifully.

i don't know all of your mods but i would go with coilovers.. or i would put it into the other things, tint, turbotimer, DTS and snub mount, rs4 grill, one piece headlights if you have the two piece, xenons, etc..

or save it for a rainy day
