Mpt

Will be buying a tune from mpt now just wondering what setting for the transmission you guys recommend? And is the race tune worse for durability of transmission? I have an auto by the way

the race tune is rough on the 1-2 shift, its pretty abrupt, but they tend to mellow out after that. I called and chatted with them, and the street setting will be a little slower at the 1/4, but was honestly more liveable with day to day. The "racecar" thing is cool, but loses its flair after a while, sometimes i just want a nice, smooth ride.

I want to try the race first to see how it feels just wanted to know if the tranny hold up to it and not mess up with harder shifts

Harder shifts are actually better for the transmission. Less slipping.

I love my race shifts from MPT and its my DD. It is a little new the first day or 2 but I'm totally used to it now and everyone loves it when they ride in my car

You get used to it.

I chose the most aggressive one that I could for a 2013 Automatic, I don't regret it, But I bet my wallet does.... I can't stop going WOT... lol.

Same. Go with the performance. I was thrown off by the large amount of engine braking at city speeds at first but I've adapted by cruising at a higher speed . As everyone says you will get used to it and love it!
