Question VXCF9 power?

Has any of you who have gone from something else to the VXCF9 strategy noticed less power? I thought this strategy was supposed to fix some issues and be better all the way around...Heres a brief history: I had the VXCF4X3 strategy, and was running ID's Xtreme street and race, as well as Gearhead's SRL+. The FICM fried, and when the dealership replaced it, they put in the VXCF9H7 strategy. I got a new SRL+ tune, and it just doesn't feel as strong. It won't even break the tires loose when I get on it from a stop. I mean, it goes pretty quick, but it just doesn't feel nearly as responsive as it should. Is it just me? Maybe I need to ask Matt about it. Otherwise I need to see about getting my old strategy back...

Stock powerwise yes you did lose some with the newest flash. But tuning wise you shouldnt notice much of a difference.

I agree with smokersteve about the mileage loss though
