Default Stage 1 PCM Q'S

I am installing a automatic stage 1 pcm later, i heard it help with trans and shift points as well as other things, my question is, i drive in auto stick mode to avoid boosting in 4th, with the new pcm, do i not have to worry about that anymore? and how high can i run the rpm's before shifting with new pcm, i just wonder if the parameters are different now, basically i want to get the most out of this mod, not to sure what else it does, i heard better shift points is all,assuming i drive in auto all the time, which i don't? does it help with any extra ponies, also the guy from diablosport said using the in-tune and the stage 1 are like painting the wall black twice, meaning they do the same thing? is this true? there is no benefit to putting a tune into the stage 1 pcm?if so i have a brand new in-tune for sale...lol

you should ask that NitroPT guy? He is a bit harsh at times on forums but generally knows what he is talking about.
