Anyonhve a Bully Dog Aggressive shift enhancer kit?

Found a Bully Dog product that enhances the shift firmness of the trans. Has anyone installed one, used one, or have any feedback on this product? Just curious as to others experience. I ordered a kit, and will try it out. I guess I've pissed away $115 way worse ways! This is what the product description says:

These transmission kits increase line pressure in the transmission, which reduces torque converter and transmission clutch slippage and improves shifting. Easy to install using basic hand tools. Bully Dog’s shift enhancers improve shift and line pressure while reducing slipping and lowering heat. The end result is firmer, quicker shifts which vastly improves the driving experience and longevity of the transmission by lowering transmission temperatures. The Allison Shift Enhancer is the simplest, most effective kit available without having to pull the transmission. It literally gives the clutches more traction in the clutch packs. It allows for a quicker shift and 150 hp worth of additional holding power for the Allison 1000, 2000 and 2400 transmissions.

The previous owner of my truck said he installed one of those in my trans. I do notice that 3-4 and 4-5 are firm shifts when you are hard on the throttle. As far as additional holding power, I couldn't say, my truck is still stock. Hopefully someone else with a little more experience will weigh in.

I think this would be better in Allison aftermarket as this is a aftermarket product you're asking about...

I put one in my 02 and it did nothing. But then again maybe I was asking to much of it. With that installed I burned the trans. so bad it would not even move. Went with a sc after that and never had any more problems. All the kit is, is 2 new spool valves-springs-and drill bit for drilling th separator plate. Its king of like a trans go jr. I think. For a 5 speed it really wont help. But then again I could be worng.

just get 115 dollar bills and burn them in the driveway, way more fun and helps the truck just as much.
