The first thing I noticed when I installed his "street" tune was the increase in shifting pressure under normal driving. It really caught me off guard the first time I putted out of my neighborhood.

Just be sure to do some normal/easy driving for about 50 - 100 miles or so until you really slam down on it hard. Tranny needs to learn the new tune.
More than once I missed second gear when forgetting to take it easy right after installing a new tune.

I load a tune and put the pedal to the floor. it will learn very quickly.

the harder shifting is the way Eric tunes it to firm it up. the line pressure and whatnot. thats all good. it takes a little getting use to for just daily driving, but you will get it.

it almost makes you want to put it down ALL the time now right?
