V8 6 Speed Transmission Vs V6 5 Speed

I have an 06 SRX V8 with a 5 speed transmission and find it wanting. Does the new 6 speed transmission in the 07 and 08 V8 make a big difference vs old 5 speed in V8 and current 5 speed in V6?

I have an '06 AWD V8 STS with the five speed and the launch off the line is brutal. A lower first gear might result in parts breakage. I got the jump at a stoplight on a guy with an FJ1100 Yamaha and left him startled to say the least. The way it is it'll draw more attention than I need.
