With an automatic; the SCT3 also has the ability to set custom shift points. So you could do an optimized stock tune; and a more aggressive tune as well.

Magus2727 True, but you can add a nice sound system with it adding weight. Replace the the speakers with some nice Infinity Kappa's, with baffels and a high quality head unit with a good amp. That would give you "sufficient" volume, great sound, and a kick.

This is coming from someone who competed in SPL competitions with his focus and had 3 12" subs pushing over 3000 watts through them.

You can make the car sound good with out adding more weight with amps or subs.

It all depends on his goals. Every car that I've had since the mid 80's, the stereo is the first mod. I've added a couple hundred pounds between the system and soundproofing in this current car. I love music period.

If I wanted a race car I'd go buy a stripped down Civic.
