Yea, not too sure if this is the right section. But, Its a matter of opinion I guess. I love mine, and have used it to load my tunes. I've also checked many of codes for people with it. The latest one being Jon(focusin).

let's just say you add a few bolt-ons and want the maximum benefit from your new mods, then absolutely. In my case the Ford X3 power tuner (SCT) was programmed by DynoSpeed Racing (on a dyno) here in Memphis and I love the fact that I not only benefit from my mods, but I get the most out of them + you can check any CEL's....JMHO

a tuner is worth it so long as you have other modifications done to your car. i love my xcalII by turbo tom. I like adjusting the different parameters. I recommend getting one.

even if you have an atx a tuner still kicks a$$. I love it and it's a completely different car. Only downside is the 93 octane, but its like another $1/fill up

especially get one if you are atx b/c it can change the shift point and your car will get quite a bit faster than on the stock shift points
