6L80E Tranny failure

So I just had a TCI Streetfighter TC put in and it was coming off the rack to get tuned. The tuner started tuning it and for some reason after shifting into 2 the car would start to shift 3rd, pop into neutral and then shift back into 2nd. Kept doing it for 2 hours. As of now its still at the shop and a transmission expert is coming out to take a look. It seems there is not enough pressure or something.

Hopefully the dealer will cover it through warranty. This is the first time anything has been worked on as far as transmissions go.

If not, I'm gonna have to pay to get the tranny rebuilt.

Anyone else have problems shifting in the A6?

The first thing they look at before any major work is your flash count....

That's exactly what happened when my tranny broke and I had a broken planetary gear . I had to use tap shift to get home cause 1 -3 rd worked fine I was at 800 rwhp at time so I saw that coming .

Was it covered under warranty?

I've seen an '10 Camaro have trouble with those converters this year. The first two he got weren't balanced properly. First one happened at the track and blew fluid all over the place on the second pass. The third converter was finally gd. For how long.....stay tuned.

I got the TCI for free. I have the FTI new in the box. Trying to sell it.

No warranty car had a converter in it but then I sent the tranny to circle d they did a awesome job when they rebuilt it. Glenn walked me through the shop and showed me what they did to help prevent from breaking again I recommend them if you want to beef your tranny up.

Damn... I guess I'll be re-building the tranny then. Wasn't expecting to pay that much.

What were the shift times set to? If they are too low it can overlap and be in 2 gears at once. I almost messed up with this too. Since I have researched a ton on these transmissions and they are a lot different tuning wise than a 4 speed.
