Initial impressions of the 140x are very good. I've been able to drive my daily commute, some short trips shopping with the wife, and yesterday I put on about 150 highway miles.
The power is there no matter what rpm. I can't get over how smooth the power comes on and doesn't seem to fall off, great for daily driving. I haven't been over about 75% throttle yet but I'm loving it so far. Minimal smoke and runs cool. I've seen 38psi of boost. A hill that I drive can reach 1000+ EGTs with another tune and I only hit 800 with the 140x. Cruise control works perfectly, doesn't "slam" when turning it off either.
As far as the transmission tuning, the shift points are perfect. I know some guys like it to hold the gears longer, or downshift sooner, but I don't, and this tune is spot on for me so far. The shifting has been great, smooth, consistent, other than one issue. Twice I have had a significant 3-5 flare which I haven't had before. Both times were while climbing a hill.
