Ive got it on my early 04 and the power is ok. Min to no smoke which is ok except for when i want it to.

4.2 Is am awesome tune. One of my personal favorites. I say try it and see. It is not super explosive off the line, but its got good mid and top end power. It will be a a different animal on your 06 from the 04. Very heavy on the fuel and low torque management, touchy throttle. You can get used to it though. I drove that tune for a year straight.

Yes, the skinny pedal is VERY touchy! Not good for driving on a bumpy road. Buts it is an awesome tune.

This was on my 07, not sure what it would be like on your 04 though.

X2 on touch ee! I like it cause it doesnt pop, but i need more a$$ on the bottom end. I run it on 9/no mp8 and get decent mpg s. With the mp8 i get to much timming rattle with any # its on. Excellant for smoke though. I wish Bob would reply on updates for us 03 and early 04 guys. Really love the Beta options, just cant shake the popping.

How would it be on a 6 speed? Purty touchey. How long you thing the stock clutch would last when driving with some sense?

Really touchy with a manual. Its gonna be tuff on your clutch too. Even on level one which is about 150 hp. 4.3 is much better for daily driving.

Yes 4.2 will be a challenge on your clutch. If you can get your hands on 4.3 it had roughly the same fueling, but more torque management built back in. Less touchy for sure.

Bob, what is the beta 4.11? I thought it was the basic "Mild TQ Management" but i could be wrong.
