hey mike... have you finished the ATX program yet? I will be coming from tampa to Tom's Dyno day mid Nov and would like to buy one of your chips and install it while tuning my gears to see the gains. If you are close to finishing and can have a chip done for PCM Code LDC8 I'll happily be the test car (and pay for the chip)

ATX is near completion. Mike Wesley has actually tuned one with early version, but is not releasing it yet. I will get it as soon as it is ready and post confirmation here.

Shiva, They claim to have better tranny efficiency. BUT... here is the catch... all these places claim this and claim that about their tranny upgrades, yet NOONE is using one on a car powerful enough to PROVE results. Tom has hammered them w/ questions and they seemed to have danced around the answers to him. When I called level ten, all they could tell me is that they would "bulletproof" my entire tranny for $3200, but when i started asking them some more in depth questions, every answer became one of these... "well... hypothetically, if you were pushing x amount of power this and that"

I'll believe it when I see it proven on the track and on the dynojet, but im definately not throwing out $3200+ for a load of empty promises.

As for wolff racing, they just fell off the face of the earth... kinda shady if you ask me

guys you might wanna contact Wolff Racing in general about the tranny

but anyways I contacted Tom about the chip and to his knowledge it was still not completed.....Nor a time frame of when it would be completed was given.....

anyone with an Auto might as well give up
