275 tune?

hello everyone this may have been covered but cant seem to find any threads so... I have the 75 150 and 210 tune and currently running the 210 and love it great gas mileage trans shifts smooth and lots of power, my question(s) are, if i get the 275 tune, how bad is the trans shifts, is it really harsh and if i get the 275 tune do i need to get direct soleniod to save my transmission i just dont want to be replacing my trans on my brand new truck if anyone has any insight i would really appreciate it

Your tranny should be fine. There hasn't been any real tranny failures yet with the 275 to my knowledge, but adding the direct solenoid also wouldn't hurt.

Your tranny will hold the power of the 275 tune. Like matt05 said, there hasnt been anyone lose their tranny or come close to it that has been running just the 275 tune.

How many miles do you have on your current tranny fluid?

275 is worth the money and the shifting is spot on.

I would think that if you did the direct solenoid now, there would be no need to change the filter until your next fluid change, but thats up to you. Some people may say different. Changes will be needed more frequently anyway with the 275 tune.

The shifting is great, but its a lot different than the 210 for sure. Much more aggressive in the first 2 shifts

The only issues I've read about had to do with the 310 tune and certain amounts of NOS. Aaron experienced slipping or something like that at the track if I recall. When he eased up on the amount, it was no problems at all.

Pahrump, and KIND have both said the same thing a .88 shot of spray seams to make these trans hate life! guess 700 hp is ok for a stock trans LOL, But yes it sounds like the smaller shot is going ok, but if you make them slip once, they continue to slip after
