OK, so objective observations:
Transmission engages immediately upon lifting off the brakes.
Up shifts are much quicker. I can now merge with ease, whereas before i had to anticipate the oncoming traffic's intent, hit the gas hard, and wait 2 seconds (an eternity for a modern transmission, and a modern merge lol!)
Selectshift holds gear longer, up to redline.

Subjective observation:
Holy crap this is now a really fun car!
I can drive it like it was meant to be driven!
MPG's seem much better! (at least on the high way cruse home from the dealer. Before we were lucky to see 32, now it climbed up to 41 and held..)

Just a great change, and i feels like it worth way more than i paid!
