Running the Hot Damn and 45mph lockup and race shifting . probably going to change the lockup to 50mph and the race shifting isn't to harsh if your easy on the throttle .

I run the hot damn tune(on HOT setting) with firm transmission settings with 45 TC lockup. Works fine as daily driver and gets up and goes when I want it to.

Does anyone have the hard shift between 2nd and 3rd when driving normal? I've heard something about adding 1 qt. to the tranny.

Hotdamn tune on Hot w/45 firm lock up.

H&S posts this on their Download Page: "For the best transmission shifting, install ladder bars and use the “race” shifting".
That has a few different messages in it, to me anyway ?

From the H&S site. You choose the tune and trans shift to download.

hot damn firm and 55-I'm a rookie at this though. Just installed it last night.

Yeah the whole "Race shifting is best but need ladder bars" will keep me away from the race shifting.
