XHP 1st impressions

Flashed Stage 2 today. They say go easy for 40-50 miles. D1 shifting is so much calmer and "normal" than stock. I love it. Tomorrow morning I'll take it down I75 and put miles on her then see what D2 and D3 are like.
Other impressions-app sucks. PITA to redeem codes regardless of reading help/internet, etc.
Using BM3 wifi adapter and that thing sucks with BM3 too.

Yeah the app could use some improvement for sure and agree that connecting over bm3 wifi adapter was a pure PITA. I have no empirical data to go by but the seat f the pants along with heart palpitations tells me the money was well spent.

Here's an observation---with BM3 stage 2 93, xhP stage 2, when shifting 1-2, 2-3 in D or S with the stick I usually get an exhaust pop. When using the paddles I don't. That leads me to believe the trans shifts faster using the paddles. I had a Indy shop guy tell me that once and figured he was full of baloney.

Thoughts?
