ATX tune.
 
how much differnce would a tune make on my ATX?

silverbulletst170 10-25-2009 11:23 AM

A decent amount... You can adjust the shift points and have it shift alot harder..

cpz1987 10-25-2009 11:50 AM

would that be worse on my tranny?

actually I think I read that it would be better for your transmission to have it tuned? But none the less having the ATX tuned will be a great improvement.

For what it costs for a tune I would do some more mods (intake, exhaust, etc) and then get a complete engine tune that includes the ATX (shift points, trans pressure, etc), make it worth your while.

If your serious about getting the tune talk to Tom or FSwerks.

yeah im still debaiting on if i want the SRI or the CAI. i dont want to get hydrolocked... im lowering it 2inches.. and it does rain quite alot here.

Jgrove998 10-25-2009 11:50 PM

^ive ran a CAI for 2 years with no problems. I live in maryland; It rains, snows, ices, etc. Just last week it rained for 4 days (no lie) straight and I had zero issues. Ive been on 3 and 4 lane highways while it was pouring down rain with no problems. Ive hit puddles (i always try not too) and had zero issues. You'll be fine man.

For a 2 inch drop your gonna need new shocks, front and rear; max for the OEM shocks is 1.5"; which is what ive been running the past year and have no problems.

I sell the xcal3 for 399.00 and 20.00 for shipping , that comes with my custom tune and free updates as you add more mods so you dont have to wait to add all your mods then buy a tune

You need to add a wide band air fuel gauge which you should have already

With a proper tune I can change you shift points , trans psi , time of clutch engagement , slip time and much more , there is a lot more to the ATX then just changing your shift and psi

To a point its better on your trans with added HP and TQ and does not allow your clutches to slip as much when changing gears

^Tom is the man.

...I wasnt sure on what else could be adjusted so i just named 2 things i knew lol.

cpz1987 10-26-2009 10:11 AM

ohh yeah i live in maryland. and it def did rain its butt off. which cai do you use? and how did you get your stocks springs to godown 1.5?

Tom - where do you get the gauge at? and where would you place it?. and could you tune my nitrouse system to run a 75 shot saftly?

1turbofocus 10-26-2009 10:48 AM

C-F-M has a good deal on the AEM wide band and yes I charge 250.00 for a Nitrous Tune and that also comes with free update
