Any tunes available?

I was searching around online and found this one performance chip from Bulldog and I was wondering how much I would gain from it. Has anyone here used it?

dont use chips....get a blank SCT tuner and get a custom
tune emailed to you, or get a dyno tune if their's a tuner
around you...and if your gonna tune it you should also
get a CAI and possibly a ported 90mm TB.

This car is not like tuning a C5 Z06 in that getting it right is going to require a higher level of tuning finese and data at hand. Mail order tuning is a bad idea for this supercharged monster. It may drive ok with say an airbox and hand held tune but what was really provided in the mail order tune in the qurestion. Probably nothing of value except turning on the fans sooner, adding or removing a small % of fuel and pulling a degree of timing. What does the commanded AFR actually read and how close it is to KR? Also, with an A6, you will not have much luck getting it to shift with a good amount of mods using a canned tune.

At a minumum you need a wide band on the car and the ability to data log.

Would I be better off just buying and installing the Lingenfelter 630 HP package?
