RPM shifts tuned vs stock?

ive been runing the looney file as a daily driver for a while now and ive noticed my shifts geting a little harder. it shifts at 2500-3000 rpms in the lower gears and seems to level out while driving regular. geting into the petal it shifts hard in all gears? stock shifts about the same but smoother. is this normal or should i try a differnt tune when i get my bigger tires?

of course a hot tune is going to shift harder, it creates less slippage in the clutch packs, and faster shifting to get you going! the higher rpms are more in the engines power range because it is a race tune.

Yes it is fine. When you are on the throttle harder it will shift harder. Also the harder you are in the throttle the higher the RPM's will carry before shifting. That is one of my favorite things about DJ's tunes. I haven't run a tune from anyone else that shifts the way DJ's do and I really like it. Most of the other tunes I have tried shift way to soon in the RPM band unless you are WOT and the 6.0 is just not a low RPM torque monster. Everybody is different and has different driving styles so if it bothers you carrying the RPM like DJ does try Eric's tunes. Similar power but much different tranny tuning strategy.
