How Much Power does my set up have.

i have 2010 A6 SS. stock 340 RWHP with a Hennessey CAI 15+ RWHP, Diablo Tuner with a 93 tune 25+RWHP Flowmaster Pro Series Axel Back 10+RWHP. these gains are all what was advertised. i want to know what i really have. i know go to a dyne but im not going to be doing that for a while so what do yall think. My friend has a 2007 Roush 427R with 550 HP dyno'd i need to know what i can get to beat him at the track. a cam is not an option. i was thinking a TSI Torque converter, Ported Throttle body, Headers, high flow cats, and Tune.

I have LT stepped headers, borla exhaust CAI intake and was at 370 rwhp after my tune two days ago. Keep in mind a tune is really only good for a specific car on a given day - temperature, humidity and altitude will impact it. The exhaust is effectively a wash in these cars, and they start around 320 rwhp, there is an l99 dunno thread that shows this consistently. To get to 550 hp you are probably looking at Forced induction and a cam. I would recommend talking to a local fast shop or one of the sponsors and set up a plan to figure out what you need to meet your long term goals.

IMHO you need more than you're probably willing to go. Most 2010 A6 SS are closer to 325 rwhp. That's what mine started off at. Add the other 50 HP and that would have you minimum 375 rwhp which may be closer. With your extra weight you need to add 200 rwhp which will be about 250 at the block. That would then have you minimum setting at 575 rwhp which you'll at the least need to compensate for being 300 lbs heavier. Do headers/blower/spray/$10,000. I know. It's expensive but fun.

A diablo tuner is pretty much good for 12rwhp I say go with your thinking mods, that'll help. I see you have 21s those wheels are too heavy some lighter wheels and drag radials you might have a better chance

You need a supercharger. Since a cam is out, that's your only option. Cam and headwords would do the trick though.

Suspension upgrades to actually put your power down.. Lose the 21" wheels maybe go to a more track friendly size and an appropriate tire

Op you are using ricer math.

It doesn't work that way, search the L99 dyno thread and see. Stock your about 320-335 depending on the dyno they are all different.

With Lt's you'll be in the 370-390 hp (dyno tuned) of course.

A TQ converter from Yank or pro torque are good brands that will pay dividends at the track. Not to mention a good Trans tune! But if he's putting down that much do some hot laps and on the 2/3rd run you'll get his heat soaked azz lol or wait til next month when it's the hottest lol. Good luck.

To get close to 500whp on a L99, you'll need a cam and heads, or FI of some fashion, or a very health shot of nitrous. No other way to come even close. With all the bolt-on possible, you'd be lucky if you hit 400whp.

Definitely all the bolt ons you can afford and then some...
Suspension mods
Gearing (not sure what your options are at the moment)
18" wheels will help, with some wide stickies in the rear.
Track time and experience
TUNE fo sho
Your going to need every advantage you can get since your limiting yourself.
And some times you just have to face the fact that you aren't the fastest car on the block.
And why are you willing to install a converter but not a cam?

well i like cams and more than likely i will get one but at the moment i let my wife drive the car when she wants, its her dream car other than an R8 lol but she really doesnt like the lopy sound. but to get low mid 12's i was thinking of doing headers, PTB, converter, 20' ZL1 Rims and 285 all the way around eibach lowing springs and sway bars, tune, catch can, and 3.70 gears.
