The torque curve on a procede may be different than the torque curve of the GIAC tune so this is why one would need to do use this tool with their curve.

Another example would be comparing my GIAC Race tune with this GIAC stage 1 tune. The shifting points of my race tune is different than the stage 1 tune.
I do understand that, but as I wrote before I would rely on practical tests to determine the best (for acceleration) shifting point rather than on theoretical calculations.
I do believe one can get a bit different results.
