have you done the new update to 6.4.22? It makes a huge difference as far as shifts. They are much smoother

The latest updates are night and day difference in shift firmness.

We are getting mixed reviews about the 4th gear TC lock on the latest updates, some guys love it and others hate it. For this reason our custom tunes will offer two different shift schedules, as well as shift speed options.

Custom downloads will be available in a week or less so update that tuner!

I'm glad to hear this. I was getting ready to reload my old Hot Damn file. This 55mph 5th gear lock up is killing my mileage. 2100 at 53mph. I do love the new shifting though. It shifts so much smoother now and I like the 4th lock up with a 45mph 5th lock up it would be perfect!

I have the KEM 345 tune, and I don't have a hard shifting problem at all. The only problem is that it shifts up a little too early. I just called Mike, and left a message asking if he could have the 345 tune programmed to upshift like the tow/haul mode. The tow haul mode lets the RPM's get a little higher giving it more power. The problem is that the tow/haul mode will downshift early to slow down the vehicle better, and I don't need this when driving normally. Is there an easy way to combine these two for the best of both worlds?

Is the new update going to fix the sluggish feeling when driving at 45-50mph? Thanks, you guys are doing a great job!!
