First let me start with saying this mod is not for everyone! I repeat it is not for everyone
So now that I have been driving the car for three hours in traffic, in the country on the highway and around town......This is a mod you know is there. During normal driving the shifts are not harsh but happen very quick and so do the downshifts which are very noticeable. When braking hard, the transmission downshifts to aid in braking.....well with the blue tops the downshifts really help with the braking. On ice and snow a panic brake situation will most likely cause the rear to lock up and slide out. It will even do this on wet roads, I know this for a fact. However this extra firm downshift does seem to really help with braking this is a plus in the summer I am guessing
Okay now the fun stuff, when you put the car in gear it doesnt slide into gear it lunges the entire car into gear. There is no gentle engagement here it is solid and the car will try and pull through the brakes when it engages, it does this in both drive and reverse. Also the engagement into drive from reverse and vice versa seems to be much quicker I never timed it but this was one thing that drove me insane about this transmission, that is the delay from drive to reverse and back. This is gone.
Under WOT the shifts are very quick and firm. To be honest I dont think they are any firmer than before but then again with wet pavement I wasnt really able to test this. But the speed of the shifts is much quicker, this is something you hear more than feel. Under moderate acceleration the shifts are again very quick and firm. If you drive aggressive like me or I should say accelerate aggressively compared to the traffic around you....you will notice firmer shifts during your daily drive, this is way better than the predator setting
All in all I am very happy with this less than $370 mod. I think winter driving will be a little more tricky, but then again it will force me to slow down and leave plenty of space ahead of me knowing that the downshifts are very firm
