    Well if it has the booklet it will give you suggested changes...you will find that most on this forum and ls1techdotcom really despise these units. I just bought one cheap too and I am very happy with it just of the reason you mentioned plus the fact that I can reset my cooling fans to take advantage of the 160 deg thermo I have, my car runs much cooler now. I added the stock hyper tech tune too and can't really feel any difference (only suppose to be 10hp?) but I did notice a lil better gas mileage on a 125+ mile trip. fwiw.

    unless you have access to a wideband I would skip the performance tune and just use it for the shift properties. It will make your car shift much better. I ran mine at 75% back when I had one and loved the way the car shifted. You can bump shift points up a little bit but on a stock valvetrain I wouldn't get real crazy with it.

    I used one a few years ago for a gear change, shift firmness (50%?) and fans, never tried the tune though. I remember it taking several minutes to tune, so make sure your battery is good and turn off all accessories using it - you don't want to lose voltage while programming....

    my advice: sell it and use the money towards getting a real tune...

    I have a Hypertech model 30025, bought new about 4 mos ago for $262. What could I get for it? It worked on my 02' and my friends 99'. He wants to buy it, but hasn't come up w/$262 he promised and is using it free! His car runs AMAZING with it though. Huge diff w/tune, shift firmness and shift points. Did not notice diff w/tune on my car.

    I've got one (really good price on it-I think I paid about $80 or less) and definitely love the shift firmness option; I went all the way up in terms of firmness & it's great!

    For my '02 A4 WS6, with stock valvetrain, what would you suggest are good shift points to bump it up to? Also, what about the other features on it (fan activation temp, rev limiter, etc.); should I change the stock configuration?

    I wouldn't mess w/Rev limiter. If you have stock thermostat I don't think it helps to change fan temp. Test your shift points. I think 1-2 was between 0-6mph and 2-3-4 get higher, should all be in the booklet. It says to use 1mph increments, but I didn't have patience for it. Also only effects WOT.
