I can actually spin the tires while driving in 2,3 rd gear from a rolling punch, around 3k rpm level, wasn't able to do that before, with the same tires as before.

For this (not spinning the tires, but the power), it was worth it as I am usually in that rpm range on the street. I haven't been above 5k yet so I can't say for the upper rpm band but I will be on the track tomorrow so we will see.
Glad to hear the tune is actually tangible on the street!! That is the ultimate proof on when the driver can actually feel a difference. I'm looking forward to hearing your track impressions too! Have fun!
