Who has the 2-3 shift flare?

Who has it? I have had it forever. Every single tune has it. Can this be fixed by a new solenoid?

Have you tried adjusting line pressure? Does it do it in stock form?

I have it but not all the time. Only does it in one specific spot when I leave my house. Only does it on stock tuning. Haven't noticed it with the custom tunes.

Yes, it doesnt help. It does it in stock form but not as noticeable. The only time it does not do it is when I load a fresh tune. My trans shifts absolutely perfectly with a fresh tune.

when you say shift flare do you mean a hard shift? like real hard? If so I and it even down shifts hard 3 to 2 when coasting up to a light or stop sign, but not everytime. I posted something in 6.0 discussion and don't know how to move it to here. I have it in stock form and when I had a tune in truck.

I upped the pressure to 25%. It helps a little but it is still there.

I have it with my tune. Almost feels like the TQ converter doesnt fully lock then it slamms. Like two shifts some times. Only on my tune only WOT.

Is that what you mean?
