    I was considering this and came up with
    Drag radials
    Driveshaft
    Pulley swap and pin
    Tune ( 93 octane )
    This seem like a good place to begin ??
    Any thoughts ?

    Pin and tune could void warranty.
    Your list is a very good start. Topcat is a good source for this. Others also know firsthand and it is s very good idea to start a thread.
    We hope you have good times and be safe.

    Yes I talked to my dealer and the tech and they said same thing,they would install Driveshaft no problem,the pulley they wouldn't do. Seems to me the pulley issue would be something they would want to make right !! I've about done all the appearance stuff I care to do,I'm ready for a little more performance !!

    Might help to share which car and which tranny you have. If A8 3.09 rear would be top of my list somewhere.

    Drag radials and a Drive shaft could be you first change. Then go run your car for the best ET you can get. This way any problems with Engine,Trans,Supercharger
    You can ask but they should still be covered under warrant unless they prove otherwise .
    Next
    Tuning and using the Metco upper pully and you will still have lots of go Fast Fun.
    Because the R&D was slowly done on my car there is known ways to modify your car now, that was not available with the start of my Tuning.
    For instance the ATI Pulley was out first.
    BTW I do use both pulleys on my car.

    I keep hearing driveshaft-so dealers don't care about that but they do care about any other mods? You guys have me paranoid that the stocker will twist-I have made a half dozen runs with drag radials coming out pretty easy-not flooring it until it hits second and then smoothly to a 1.62 60 ft and a 10.82-so I am living on borrowed time? Swap the ds and swap back if I go to dealer-won't they be able to tell its been wrenched on?

    Propshaft should not be an issue unless it snaps and takes out another component or it causes a vibration.

    Sounds like a great list for the first 5 mods.

    I'm not sure if your smiley is for or funny.

    NO WAY, save your money.
    Until it's track proven.
    I run stock box no filter.
    Soon there may be a game changer for a CAI.

    Driveshaft
    Tires/slicks or drag radials
    Gear swap

    That's ALL an automatic car REALLY needs to be a true street beast that's still 100% drive able like stock

    I watched a car with those mods run against a 900whp 18psi fully tuned beast with gear swap etc etc and it was a lot closer race than you would have thought!!!!!!
    Un prepped pavement, not a track..

    For what you asked, that's All you need IMHO

    Hope that helps

    Btw for the record I LOVE MY 6spd :D

    my plan was air intake, throttle body, tune, exhaust drive shaft and tires. A local shop just did air intake on a hellcat and it made it run really lean. So they told me not to do it.
