Blue5ive Also when decreasing the amount of time it takes the clutches to engage/disengage in order to shift will reduce the amount of heat generated thus increase the life of the atx. Heat is also a big factory leading to atx failure.

All in all it should make the trans last longer when modding

Totally agree with this! My slushbox shift almost the same as how I shift manuals! It's awesome! Thanks again Tom

kmtalko No, you should be able to use your xcal2. I have one and it lets me datalog and it should also let you load custom tunes.

2000zX3sct No just to clarify for everyone it wasnt Tom , but yea I think I will do that .. I'm getting cams and cam gears next month so I might as well wait until then . Also will it matter what tuner I have? I have the xcal 2 , someone told me that I need the xcal 3 in order to do PC stuff?

Blue5ive Don't worry Tom, I'm sure it wasn't you.

Not to thread jack but on an automatic tune I've heard you change some of the settings for the tranny when it comes to shifting. Was wondering what the changes were and how they affect the performance and reliability of the trans?

1turbofocus Yes with the intake you should at least do datalog and send it to your tuner

If your tune wasnt done right did you send a datalog to your tuner so he can make adjustments and make your tune custom ? I hope is wasnt me but if it was shoot me a datalog and I can make adjustment so you like your tune , if it wasnt me then I can get you a custom tune that you will like

Tuning Automatic

Well i got a tune for my automatic a while back , when i got the tune all i had done was the full exhaust and a shorty header, since then I have added a short ram intake and i have upgraded the coil..... and put a 65mm TB , Just wondering if there is a different tune for the added upgrades or is the tune just generic for my application ? I dont think my tune was done properly in the first place .... cause it was done by someone that isnt well liked by the focus community for tuning purposes , but any input would be great... my tune is the 91 octane tune.
