Not to mention the ability to adjust line pressure for firmer shifts for automatics!

My car would barely spin the tires taking off. Now it chirps 2nd and third. I can just nail the throttle (no brake) and really spin the tires hard taking off. With an auto cai/tune makes it feel like a different car.

noice..I bet you combine that with a tq converter,gears ans sticker tires the car REALLY takes off!

I hope it's all worth it..kinda taking a gamble on the automatic being that the last car I owned that was an auto was back in 00.
