I was going to ask the same thing. My tuner has mine set to "manual auto lock" so that any time I use the tapshift it will automatically lock my converter in whatever gear it is in and stay locked until I put it back into sport mode, which is where I drive it all the time. This way I can cruise around after some hard pulls and cool it down quicker and shift when I want to, up or down and stay locked. Works really well.

Yeah when I drop to second in manual mode it shifts on its own. Tuner has the shift points set a little higher as well.

Thats a good idea for the converter lockup as well. You have triple disk right?

Mine is also set that if I bop the limiter in first or second it will automatically shift up.

Yea I really like being able to lock it when ever I want to and cruise at what ever speed the converter likes and doesn't buck, if it does I just downshift a gear. But no mine is only a billet single disc. When I was ordering it from Circle D and was chatting with Chris there and he was asking about the cars HP level and how the car was going to be driven and I said she is a daily he told me I didn't need a triple because my HP level didn't require one, just a single disc. So I was able to save a few bucks there and still have a great converter..

Good to know. I should be doing a converter soon and would like to save a little if possible! I have the auto shift already and love that feature.
