Around town, on the throttle, its LOUD and ANGY, Now...I have the 8 speed automatic (I can't drive a manual because i almost lost my left foot in the line of duty Law Enforcement in 05, and then had my right leg amputated and re attached in 2011 in an accident. I have very little use of left leg and didn't want hand controls. So I learned to drive with my left foot on brake and right foot on gas. I use a Pedal Commander to adjust the sensitivity of the throttle very sensitive so it doesn't take much movement of my right foot to accelerate). On the highway between 60-80, I'm under 2000rpm, and you can barely here it. Plus...I have an open K&N typhoon intake, and Forge hard pipes that remove the plastic intake muffler (all heat shielded to avoid heat sink) So...it roars from both ends and burples and pops. Add in a DINAN ELITE TUNER and MAD CUSTOMS transmission tuner, the intake, exhaust, transmission tuner, pedal commander, exhaust w/o 2nd cat; and it can MOVE and ROAR! I left in the resonator to avoid interior drone and tuned out the fake Active Sound Design, have the HK premium entertainment system with BAVSOUND Woofers under the seat; and it is pleasant at highway speeds. I will try to get sound clips, but trust me, it's a LOUD little wagon when it wants to be.
Where did you get a transmission tune? Do you feel a difference? I also have the 8 spd, and feels like it doesn't mesh correctly with the RPM tune.

TCU Tune

Madnessautoworks TCU auto flas. Makes a noticeable difference on top of RPM tune, puts more torque down to wheels, smooths out shifts, quickly runs through gears at higher RPMS. Had it with my Dinan Elite prior and made big difference there. ALL4 had to be special ordered, but worth it,

According to their website, my car is not compatible. It looks like I will have to do a special order for mine as well.

If I'm not trying to push the car particularly hard, do you think this product is right for me? My regular driving feels ok, but when I try to push the accelerator a little bit harder in normal mode, it feels like the transmission is lugging about or has hesitation or something. When the transmission is in sport mode, everything is fine because it holds the gears longer and revs higher obviously - but it feels smoother in this mode.

Does it effect the auto start/stop? I like that the engine turns off when I'm sitting at long red lights. And does it effect other driving modes like eco?

I think it will be better for it in the long run. Also look into a Pedal Commander; it's not expensive, a two minute install and it makes the car and transmission overall feel better/smoother/faster. It really just makes your throttle more sensitive which will run you through the gears faster.
