Did you have the tuner before the trans rebuild? If you did and did not have it reburned you could have pressure issues. Unless you have the tune burned for trans upgrades most will include programming that will raise trans pressure, shift points, etc, etc. Assuming the builder installed a shift kit or reprogramming kit of some sort; that is already raising the trans pressure, now you are adding to it with the tuner. Do you have a trans temp gauge, if so what is the temp at? If not, why?
Also, are you sure the trans is good for 600HP? I spent just over $5k rebuilding mine with the best parts available; all steel planets, 4140 input shaft, BW clutches, Sonnax updates, high flow pump, custom valve body, Tugger kit, 5 disc billet TC, etc. and I doubt that is good to 600HP... The TC is, but the trans???
