Transmission Tune Comparison

With running the XRT and the stock transmission tune, I have found myself looking for a better setup. I have found myself using the tow/haul setting because I like the low speed shifting. The constant downshifting while decelerating is nice and saves the brakes. It does get a bit annoying after awhile. Just to be straight forward, I have not tried the H&S tranny tune yet.

I am looking for a nice smooth, firm tune. I am leaning toward the Gearhead tune after reading the reviews on here. Please offer up your suggestions, especially those that have used multiple tunes. I am trying to make sure that my money is wisely spent.

Thanks in advance!

I'm a fan of the GearHead tune. I never ran the H&S transmission tune because I heard negative things about it. I used the stock tune for a while and had no complaints. The GearHead tune feels as smooth as stock, but definitely turns it up a notch when you want it to go. I'm not sure how it handles with towing though.

Thanks guys. Did your stock tune have the transmission in 4th at 20mph while in a residential area? Was is almost "hunting" for gears in stop and go traffic? Does the SPE or Gearhead resolve this and make it seem like it is always in the right gear?

Gearhead trans (and engine) tuning here. I feel as though it is perfect.

My stock Trans tuning since delete has it shifting out at low speeds if I'm not giving it much throttle. Then if I decide to go on it seems like it wants to try to pick up from 20mph and stay in 5th or 6th gear. Don't really like that at all

This is my experience as well. Does Gearhead solve this?

Thanks! I don't have any experience with the MCC, but could this low speed shifting be adjusted with the stock tune via MCC?
