    Yes. I have a base model GT. Not sure how SCT or Forscan work, but HP Tuners is easy. You can turn it on with the trans in sport or drive to always show.

    Very interesting. Have you done this with success? what HP to the wheels does this start becoming an advantage?

    Currently, my programming doesnt allow 2nd gear transbrake or automatic shifting from 2nd gear in sport mode, I would have to launch in 2nd off the footbrake and either paddle shift or immediately try to throw it back in drive after I launch.
    The next tune I put in the car will have the ability to launch in 2nd gear with the transbrake and auto shift.
    As far as hp, I guess it really depends on the car. My car has zero weight transfer because of the road race suspension and I know my car could benefit from it. Mine makes 800rwhp, but I want to put the smaller pulley on for 5lb more boost
