I dunno I really have never had a problem with either upshifting quick 
(Data Commander says I'm off power for less than .15 seconds and only 
loose about 3lbs of boost at 18psi) and If your downshifting correctly 
(Like AFTER most of the braking has been done) it just works....  Albeit 
the pedals need a little adjustment.

For the most part cracking off those really quick upshifts and downshifts 
does nothing during street drivering other than open up the possiblity of 
some synco damage when you get it wrong.

Just my $1.05
