I have a SCT tuner from mike@5star. And yes the power is just as smooth as stock but when you touch the little pedal she launches hard and pull hard till you decide to back out of it.

one more question is did it make the shift points better? I hate how it tries to hold 6th and then drops 2 gears when you mash on it.

Are you running any gauges? Mike suggested the dashdaq unit.
