trifeca tune questions

So i finally installed my tune.. it was really easy.. i set up agressive ghost cam... now the question is, do i need to drive so many miles to feel the gains from the tune? Idk if i am crazy or what but i feel no gains.. car actually seems worse performance wise. Like less responsive. The idle is rough as i expected cuz of ghost cam however today when i started coasting and took the car off gear, my rpm would go up and down up and down.. it was enough change to hear my car accelarating by itself and see the nedle go up and down. Normal?? Weird? Not normal? Finally, my exhaust seems a lot quieter now.. before i had lots of pooping when coasting, now it is barely happening..

What mods do you have the ghost cam may be causing the rpms problem

The trifecta tune seems to be more beneficial for the autos just because of the tran tune.

I don't think there is but if the only thing the tune does for me at least, is keep my car running good after the headers I'm ok with that, the ghost cam is just a bonus

Well it is definitely the ghost cam.. mean when i have it on nothing happens but when i disable it.by pressing the cruise.control on then the car goes all crazy and keeps accelerating itself from like 1200 to 1400. It doesnt come down past 1200. I am gonna deactivate ghost cam.
