Remember, the shift pressure and time are tied to throttle position, so it is only adding pressure and reducing expected shift times when you need it.

I have had zero issues and believe I was the second tune, Dave correct me if wrong...
Yes, I believe you were the 2nd or third TCM tune done at the time. Thanks again for the feedback!

Thanks for posting that statement because I did wonder if driving normally vs driving aggressively was/felt different. If that's the case it sounds similar to the characteristics of the turbo. Hardly noticeable when driving normal, but very noticeable when shoving your foot down harder. I'll put this mod in the wait and see mod category.
