Arrow Newby Question?

I own a 08 6.4 cc swb 4x4 with a 6 inch Fabtech Radius arm lift and 37 nittos. This morning I installed a Spartan with 150hp,175hp,210hp,& 275hp settings, S&B intake, 4'' delete kit, and a MBRP 4'' exhaust without a muffler. I have only driven the truck about 13 miles since the install and I really am pleased with the choices I picked. I would like to thank Aaron @ Rudys performance for the help on purchasing all my performance parts. I call a few other places and they acted like I was bothering them by asking questions. Aaron never once acted like I was bothering him and he even called me to make sure I got all the parts I wanted and to see if I had anymore questions. Not only did I buy everything from Aaron but I got the best prices from him. I am a small business owner and I was very impressed with the customer service I was given by Aaron! Thank you!

Now here is my question or questions.....

#1 Does it take a little time to let the trans learn the shifting pattern?
#2 What trans temps are you guy seeing? Outside temp here is 100 degrees.
#3 Should I start on the lower settings and move up?
#4 Should I get the trans soleniod?

Thanks for your time! I will post some pics of truck as soon as I wash it this evening. Matt

I just got all my stuff from Aaron as well and he is the man!

I am also wondering about the tranny shifting. Sometimes at WOT it acts crazy. Like it can't figure out which gear it wants????
