Derrick you or Rhino know if the LFX ECU has a flash counter like the V8's but unlike the LLT?

AWESOME, Guess I better get out and read more sections than the few that I do. I am just now catching up top this one. CONGRATS.

Can't wait to hear more of the results and news.

GREAT color choice too.

Was the LFX really worth the upgrade?

Can't say for sure just yet, but the fact we can tune it ourselves is a big plus.

Is your lfx a 6 speed? I thought tunes don't really make a huge difference on a manual. I'm kinda new when comes to engine and trans mods. I like the gains btw!

Tunes do make same difference on engine performance on both the A6 and M6. The only difference is that the M6 won't need any trans tuning because the drive controls the RPM's basically. The A6 tends to be more conservative with the high RPM's and how well the shifts kick in.

Yes, this is an A6. We haven't started the transmission tuning, so this would be a similar gain to what a M6 would see. Of course, the M6 would have higher overall numbers because there is less drivetrain loss.
