Default Tuned my car--- need advice- WAY too much torque

guys,
i tuned my car, ported the S/C and did e85. first and 2nd gear are useless at this point, and im not a happy camper.

car is a 7MT - is it possible ot tune these cars by gear so that 1st and 2nd arent putting down so much torque ? thanks - any help would be appreciated.

That's so funny but so true. With my TT C5 I had to short shift basically 1-3 gears...gaining a little more rpm in each gear until I could shift into 4th and full roll into WOT with the 335 Proxes slipping but gripping enough to track straight with a little counter steer. Pretty easy to do once I got used to it.
