I could use a little advice

My present setup is;
KX3 > KPA100 (w/ ATU)  >   MFJ Balanced line tuner  >  ladder line fed
80m Inv 'V'

I run this with the ATU disabled and then manually tune.  Obviously
this is time consuming and makes band switching a pain so I am
considering removing the MFJ from the chain and start using the ATU.
Also I plan to add a KPA/KAT500 in the near future and my MJF tops out
at 300w so I has to go anway.

The questions are...

1) Should I do it? or will I see a significant performance decrease?

2) If I do  -  How should I make the ladder to coax conversion? I
think I need a "tuner balun"?
