questoins about my recent upgrade to sct from edge

hey guys. I bought an edge as my first tuner. i was impressed over all.. but my truck lacked enough power to spin the tires. plus i didnt like how the tranny shifted. so with everyones urging i got a sct from innovative. i got the tow, street, and extreem street tunes. the street and extreem street with both spin the tires now! i was most pleased with the tunes. untill i got to drive them everyday and now i notice some things. I notice that unless i floor the truck, it doesnt feel like it has any much more power than stock. for instance i could pull a trailer on lvl 5 with the edge. maybe a 4k pound trailer. and i would hardly even notice its there. well when i tow with the sct on any setting it all feels the same as about stock. it like it has no real low to mid end power. all of which is vital when i tow. i dont feel comfortable passing anyone when im towing my 3 trailers cuz the only way i can really excellerate is if i floor it. and i know these tunes arent made to be thrashed while towing. I noticed on my edge i could give about 1/4 to 1/2 throttle and hit 100mph in no time. for the same effect i have to give 3/4 to full throttle on the sct. in reality except for the ability to spin the tires on takeoff. the sct actually feels the same or a tad slower on the extreem vs lvl 5 edge.

I just left a message with innovative.. loved his service in the past and im by no means dogging his tunes...

I just wanted to ask for some opionions on what i should expect from a sct.
cuz i was under the impression this thing was suppose to kick edge's ***.
and if i had to guess how fast my truck was now... id have to say i dont think it would be any faster than a 15.5 to 16.0 in the quarter.
my 2002 chevy silverado z71 5.3 cammed and stalled truck ran a 14.8 in the quarter in 4wd. i know how to launch, and i know what a 14 second truck feels like.

I doesnt feel anydifferent towing my trailer with my old 2002 half ton silverado and my 2004 6.0 deisel.

also with my sct tunes,, if i let off the throttle fast from anything over 1/4 throttle i get a turbo fart. it seems plain rediculous.

enough of my ranting.. hope you guys can cheer me up

So im wondering if this is normal for a sct?
