new gogo direct clutch solenoid

i just installed the gogo direct clutch solenoid and it fixed the flair between 3-5 , when in stock tunning it works great shifts firm but when in mild tune or wild on the h&s it seems to shift very hard still firm but kinda bangs in to gear . id rather have it do that then the sloppy shift i once had but was just wondering if this is going to screw my transmission . i have read alot and heard the 5r110 loves to shift firm but with 190000 km i have to be sure i am not doing damage . i love the way it shift now i just wish i wouldnt shift sooooo hard on the 3-5 shift when stepping on it ...i guess i cant have it all .....or mabey i can with the help of org

no problem at all first of all from what i have learned and read it just effects the 3-5 shift and reverse , but the week link is the 3-5 shift . it seems ( for me ) that all the other shifts were great just the 3-5 was sloppy . i only noticed this after getting the truck tuned ,in stock it wasnt noticable at first then it got worse . the install was very easy the only problem i ran in to was the solenoid they sent was a little different and i had to install it on a angle. the reason it was different was the tabs that lock it in place were about a centameter lower so they would not line up but after looking at it and trying different things i found if i turned the solenoid clockwise a qurter turn it fit right in then i could put the snap ring on and it wont turn freely (kinda hard to explaine)but it helped alot and i am happy with the product but now it seems to shift real firm at wot . very grabby ant i am not too sure if this is right ???? good luck on your install and let me no how it goes please .....

i just opened mine up out of the package 5 minutes ago. i plan on installing it this weekend and thanks for the tip. how many quarts of fluid did it take to refill the transmission or did you just put what you drained back in?

Sounds like its doing it's job. A hard shift is better than a flared shift?

I didn't notice mine get much harder just a lot quicker.

YOu should be able to turn your shift pressure down a little to reduce the harshness of the shift.
