Ess Tune + Turner Testies

Just ordered ESS tune and Turner Test pipes. This is the last mods I can do to my engine without S/C her. I understand there are BIG gains once you remove the primary's. ANYone else running this on DCT? How are the gains? Do you feel a big differnce? 35 WHP sounds like a BIG difference. Also how bad is the gas smell with no cats? Thanks guys and I know this has been discussed before just want your guys input. Also I have a Fab speed X pipe with a borla rear section. Drop in AFE filter. oh BTW the guys at AUTOcouture will be doing install.
