Since I have almost no options for the 1996 a4 as far as EMS's. I have three choices pretty much. Haltech EMS -$1200 AEM EMS - $1500 or sell the car and get a 97+ 30V. The reason for this would be to SC it. Total cost would be anywhere from $2500-3500 and I'd only make 275-300 hp or so for possible 12s, with some coilovers a badass track car. Right now I'm thinking that keeping the car for a few months and then selling it for the 30V is the best idea. There are more options for the 30V and it's tuneable/chippable without a stand alone. Yes, I've decided I have to modify it one way or another. The most I'd do to this is a CAI, Exhaust, tint and maybe some rims if I decide not to SC this. The 12V is like an LS and the 30V is like a GSR. The latter being a better, more powerful starting platform.
