    While your messing with the tranny program, jack up the minimum TCC duty cycle to at leat 20-25 in the normal operating temp ranges. They like that and in case you ended up with a non PWM TCC plate it will keep it from going up in smoke.

    The stock duty cycle on the initial engagement of the lockup plate is very low for a smooth engagement so raising the initial hit makes em lock up quicker and saves wear and tear on the lockup plate. With a slippy high stall converter, there is a lot more RPM difference the plate has to grab and it tends to slide way too much. Upping the initial duty cycle ramps the engagement in a LOT faster and solves a lot of problems.

    Hey that make sense. Do you think when I order my tune from PCMforless they will do that or will I have to ask them to?

    Have you looked at their website? There's a form you fill out that gives you room to request trans settings iirc
