Worth is to Tune my ZX3 Auto Trans?

I was wondering if it would be worth it to tune my ZX3 Auto.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages compared to Manual.

My opinion, it will help but it will never be a manual.

I think in some cases it may be worth more to tune an auto.If you can tell your tranny to shift when you want for what mods you have that would be HUGE on the dragstrip.

geting a tune for your automatic would be the best thing. it will make firmer quicker shifts higher in the rpm range. it can be faster then a 5 speed.

Where can you get something like this done? Also what is the cost to have your auto transmission tuned.
