GOGO Soleniod and Shifting

About 2 weeks ago it was time to flush the tranny "since I was in there" i decided to do the 08 pan and filter upgrade. About 2 weeks before I did it i began to get a little bit of a 3-5 flair. With new fluid, filter change, and the GOGO it is running and shifting great.

One question I have is how hard is too hard for a shift. There is no flair now with the 3-5 shift. If I am getting on it through the shifts it shifts smooth. If I am driving like my wife, the 3-5 shift is pretty firm, maybe borderline too hard. how hard is too hard for a shift. I know some of the guys have turned down the shift pressures to help with it.

For you guys that have done that how much have to turned down the pressures?

I have experienced the same thing with my solenoid. I just live with it. Maybe talk to Matt and see what his take on adjusting the tuning.

Turn it down in 5% increments until you are satisfied with the shifts.

Got questions about your 6.0?

Thanks for the advice. I wanted to make sure I was not going to make too much of an adjustment first.

The shifts really don't bother me, I was not sure if shifting that firm was OK for the tranny.

I had my gogo for a while now and no bad effects at all the only thing I don't like is some times in town it will down shift kinda hard from 5-3 . I believe the faster and firmer the shifts the better . I read somewhere ford tried to make the 5r110 shift like a car would soft and not noticeable . I would rather have It shift hard then soft and slipping

Soft/spongy shifts are the worst thing for an automatic transmission. Mfrs have been catering to the masses for so long that we think that firm shifts are hurting something somehow.

As previously stated, play with your shift points if it's a concern. Until a shift makes the Tow/Haul light flash, it's fine.

i just completed this mod. too. changed the 3-5 sol #7 and the Reverse Chatter sol #6 both in the 3 row of solenoids.

Upgraded to the 08 pan and filter and changed the frame rail filter -we all know how that went...

Did you notice you have more fluid capacity with the 08 pan? i put 9 Qts. back in but find reading the dip stick a bit tricky.

Mine shifts fine for my taste hard and fast that's i how i roll..

Well from reading what everyone said I think I am going to leave my shift pressures alone. It does not bother me the way it is shifting as long as it was not going to hurt the tranny. The faster I get through the gears the smoother and firmer it shifts.

Guess I will just have to drive that way more often.

Thanks for the help.

I had my shift pressure turned up 25% with my old solenoid to help shifts until I swapped in the gogo solenoid. After I swapped solenoids I just left the shift pressure at +25%. Its fine for me so far, but I just swapped solenoids on saturday
