Run it. You will be fine. Lots of people run it as a daily driver tune. It takes a little getting used to. But you will be good to go

+1 to run it as a DD tune. I do. It's a touch quirky compared to the Xstreet file, but its just the lockup that makes the difference. One thing to note is that if you take off easy and level off at 60mph or so, you have to back out of the throttle and then ease back in to it to get it to drop in to OD. IMHO it's the best DD tune I've ever run. I love rolling in to it at about 45 mph or so and the converter stays locked and it really digs and plants you in the seat!
