In regular drive it is more like sports mode. The shifts are better & the car runs a better like it should. Since I have the tune on both G8's it is more noticeable on the GT.

Sport mode seems like pretty tight shifts, downshifts, what does it do for air and throttle?

I have a roto-fab intake, Solo mach shorty catback, and the Overkill tune is from www.overkill.com

The tune is the best mod to date, but I would recommend installing it after the exhaust and intake. I cut down my 55-100mph time by 3-4 seconds after the tune.

Upon throttle it downshifts very well to catch a gear suitable in sport...
