Sct srl question

Recently installed the srl tune on my 06.

My question is shift pressures,....is it safer for the stock transmission for me to remain using the srl default pressures or adjust the pressure some?

I'm not real familiar w this

When I run the SRL, I generally take away 5 or 10% of the pressure. They are pretty firm shifts. I think it's boils down to personal preference. Now with that said, the quicker the transmission shifts the less clutch wear you get. JMO.

It's pretty quick default as you said. I was thinking of adding 5-10% for a little firmer shift...just wasn't sure about premature wear on a stock trans

my trucks have the srl tune and they shift real hard.. I want hard shifts though- less clutch wear and longevity. I have the srl tune no studs.. Love it

New srl question ...tonight I was playing around w my insight and the 0-60 function...from a dead stop into wot truck ran like a bat outta hell until 3rd gear.

Acted like it just died momentarily and looked down rpm was 4200 ish....this doesn't sound right to me...

Any ideas what might have happened? It hasn't done it again yet

Fuel filter possibly?

Mine kinda feels like that with my SPD tune. I have my shift psi turned up but I cant remember what its set at. I think I looked down and my RPMs were around 4400 or so one time.. I dont think thats good at all.

I run SRL+ and love the way it shifts. I have heard that it is popular to raise the pressure on Matt's tunes by 15%. I may try that sometime but I'm more than happy with it just the way he sent it to me. On the other side I have heard that it's popular to reduce the pressure on Eric's tunes by 15%.

Not sure about your second question. I've never experienced that with mine.

It hasn't done it again and I made a few wot pulls.

Do you increase all pressures by 15% or just 1-2?

I haven't tried adjusting shift pressures yet. I like it just the way Matt sent it.
