The v6 is basically the red headed step child of the b5 world. It just never really got any mods that "wowed" anybody. The 30v has more options than the 12v, but even then the options are limited. Most people chose to add coilovers, wheels, a custom exhaust, and call it done.
If you are one of the guys who has a 2.8l and you want to know what's available, take a look below. This is your definitive list for b5 a4 2.8l performance mods.

Upsolute - http://www.upsolute.com/index....el=10 +18hp, +19ftlbs
GIAC - http://www.giacusa.com/programs.php?mpid=60 +6 to 9hp, +6 to 9ftlbs
