So this basically means you can avoid creating a vaccume in engine. But still reduced engine power between shifts. Thus essentially a vaccume free quick shift.

So if I got this right this device is mostly advantageous in a turbo situation because it allows better flow to the turbo buy not restricting air via throttle gate.

So if I understand this correctly this mod would be say, on a turbo car, would be faster then quick shifting, and would be comparable to powershifting. But also prevent you from Truely power shifting.

What I see here is competition, the computers action to cut power duration is controlled but the.human counterpart. This means if reacting time is.fast enough to shift before any significant loss in power occurs. And see this would be a competitions on how.fast one can move the body vs how precisely, because in power shifting you gain.power at.the.engine between shift, speed is important but more often it's prediction knowing when AND how fast you need to move .

So if I got this right, in a turbo situation, drag, either this mod and lose a little engine power but gain consistency in shifts and lose less without vaccume. Or powershift skillfully, or run a modified automatic slapstick with high tc.

Also wouldn't this create an issue down shifting aggressively?
Kill time will adjust manually, shift time is manually or you can set it in auto and the box will measure your shifting time (reaction time included). SCT is 2 step programmable only for fuel cut, wot box is an electric cut with a 2 step and wot shifting.

Yeah it helps with times regardless of the power.

Must add that I just changed heads, running an SVT one, for the zx3 ECU to read can either grind the extra pegs in the cam and leave only one like a regular zetec or instead of tapping the cam sensor splice on ground for injector 1 and select "other fuel signal".
