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

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.

^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
