sct is the way to go!!!!!

(((((well i have been waiting and waiting and my new sct and exhaust got here today. i installed my sct to find out that my truck shifts terrible in every tune. it takes for ever to engage gears frompark to drive or to reverse. got on the phone with tech support turns out something they dont know what it is yet and cant be fixed until monday when the engineers get in. so yeah thats how my day turned out after bouncing off the walls waiting. but im getting ready to get some dinner then start the turbo back exhaust. hopefully that turns out better than the sct. well thats the update on the sct. pictures and videos of install and results to come if my problem gets resolved. but if my shifting deal dont turn out i guess i will have to send the sct back )))))))))

EDITED and changed title

i got everything working. sct is awesome, now my tranny shifts perfect. i think even better than before

Canned tunes or custom ? As for the trans, its gonna shift bad in the beginning how much did you drive ? the trans has to relearn itself cause of the adjustments. Drive it through the gears let it relearn if that doesnt help then maybe its in the tune.

3 miles aint going to do it. If you actually follow the Ford Transmission Relearn process, its stupid cause the only way you can do it is on a track, it has you run it up 1-2-3 back down to stop, like 4 or 5 times and hold it at speeds of 35 to 40, then 3-5 a couple times and hold speeds at 50 its a pain just to do that process, best bet is to drive it smoothly and easy try going thru the low gears first and then upper gears afterwards.



TorqShift Harsh/Slipping Engagements, Upshifts, and/or Downshifts:

If these symptoms are experienced after the batteries have been disconnected, then it is due to the transmission adaptive strategy being cleared from the computer. This may occur when the vehicle is delivered new from the factory as well.

1. Warm the engine and transmission to operating temperature with all accessories off.
2. Idle engine for one minute with engine warm and all accessories off.
3. Idle engine for one minute with A/C on.

Then:
1. While driving, perform three series of upshifts at light, medium and heavy throttle.
2. While stopped, perform three sets of gear engagements (N-R, N-D, D-R, R-D) with the brake pedal firmly depressed and waiting three seconds between each engagement.

Perform these steps once in normal mode and once in tow/haul.

If that thing wanted to go....the strap would do absolutely nothing. you need a chain and boomer. Or if you're not going far, just get a safety chain and wrap around the front of the trailer. I have hauled stuff before and not tied it too, but you never know what could happen. Sorry for the hijack

Well all of our work is usually really close like right down the road. No highway involved. But on the highway we would chain from the back of the bobcat to trailer then the strap. But we aren't stupid or we wouldn't have the nice equipment and trucks that we do have.



I need help with my downpipe. Any tips. I messed with it for prolly half hour and it seems like it's impossible with that flange
