That is only partly true.
The original had the following settings:
Level 0: Stock
Level 1: 40 hp & 80 ft-lbs of torque
Level 2: 60 hp & 100 ft-lbs of torque
Level 3: 80 hp & 160 ft-lbs of torque
Level 4: 100 hp & 250 ft-lbs of torque
Level 5: 115 hp & 290 ft-lbs of torque
The Platinum has these:
Level 0: Stock
Level 1: 25 hp & 50 ft-lbs of torque
Level 2: 40 hp & 80 ft-lbs of torque
Level 3: 60 hp & 120 ft-lbs of torque
Level 4: 80 hp & 160 ft-lbs of torque
Level 5: 100 hp & 200 ft-lbs of torque
HOT: 115 hp & 240 ft-lbs of torque
So in truth, the Platinum with the hot unlock gives you the same hp power levels plus
another, lower power level the original did not have.
The actual difference is torque (which is the real transmission killer). As you can see from the numbers posted, the Platinum actually has 20 ft-lbs more torque in the 60hp setting than the original had but is 50 ft-lbs less in each of the 100hp and 115hp settings...
Your best bet is to stay out of anything higher than level 3 or 4 and set your defuel to 0. If you go up to level 5 or the hot unlock, the trans will not like you and eventually, you will not like it either....

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams
Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
