"worth it" is subjective. I would say abso-freakin-lutely if you're an A6.

A6 - YES! But you must get a real trans tune.

M6, not so much.

The simple answer is yes you'll see gains from the LS3, LSA, and the L99, and as white 2SS said "worth" is subjective.

Because how Tampa Tuning calibrates an automatic transmission, it will feel like a new car, and I have to warn owners prior to their first driving experience after a tune. Its a very differant unleashed vehicle.

BUT, really if your thinking tune, you should be thinking bolt ons first then the tune and save money in the long run. I get a ton of return clients that move from stock and tune, to bolt ons and retune, to now I got a cam tune.

the transmission tune is where its at... the other night, i had my vehicle back "stock" for the 1st time in a long time when we were tuning it with hptuners...

after my tuner was happy with the engine tune, we took it for a spin... then we loaded up the transmission tune, even he was like "damn, what happened?"...lol
