Congrats on what sounds like a great addition to your team. I may soon be getting in touch with you as I'm close to giving up on getting my car not to hit the rev limiter. I will take one more shot at it before seeking help. Truth be told I bought the tuning school transmission guide and it didn't help me, but I'm sure you guys can.

Again......congratulations !.

You have alot of HP if your transmission is stock. You may want to set your shift points ( MPH and RPMs) earlier to give the vehicle more time to react to the command.

It can also be your transmission may be worn to a point where it can not hold the clutches and are slipping through the shift points because of your power. Tuning software cant change that.

On your HP Tuners delivered torque PID, do some 50%, 75%, 90% and 100% throttle shifts to determine what the torque level your transmission is not handling and at which gear.

IT will help you to build up to the problem area that needs to be adjusted.

Without the proper set up using a wideband attached to the vehicle plus the end user agreement sucks on it, Its like a $350 dollar toy to clear codes. Does anyone really tune with it, or do they get a mail order tune and upload it that throw it on the shelf? I know the guys with HP Tuner do both. I educate them on the campare option that shows you what changes have been made after each tune. With the tune I send them my performance scanner I use for all my tuning. You can store has many tunes as your laptop can hold. I tell guys that spray N02, buy one of the used SCT units for $100.00 bucks, and you can save your NA tune and your NO2 tune and change them at will.

99% of my business is real time plugged into cars tuning with a wideband and my HP Tuners. Cuting and pasting the same tune over and over again 100's of times would drive me up a wall. Id be bored. I love tuning and seeing that owners face after the first drive.
