I've got an '05 F250, just had head gaskets/studs done, EGR delete. Trucks been down about a month. I noticed the slight flare between 3-5 shifts but it seems to be getting better with time? Could it be that the TCM or tuner had to adjust/learn over time after being down for so long? truck has a Bullydog GT gauge/tuner on it since I bought it. Never had any problems before as I don't beat the hell out of it (very often
) I don't tow or race the truck, and the extra power from the Bullydog is more than enough in my book. My question is, would a Go-Go solenoid fix the issue/prevent further problems with my tranny and this tuner, or should I get rid of the Bullydog and go with an SCT Livewire? Can I tighten up the tranny with the SCT like the Go-Go is supposed to? Cost is definitely a factor as the warden is not at all pleased with the $5K bill to stud/gasket this thing. Any input would be appreciated. BTW- I have a line on an SCT Livewire with IDP's Extreme Street tune on it for $350 locally, so would the costs be comparable with a Go-Go by the time I'm done with the solenoid/fluids/trans filter?
