tranny help please

I am new here and trying to get some info on a shifting problem I have, well its not really a problem I would just like for it to shift harder. when it cold it shifts ok (but still not hard enough for me), but when warm it gets a little sloppy, it more rolls into gear. I have a superchip programmer and im wondering if i can have it reprogrammed to shift harder, or possibly install a Banks trans command. I really want to put a new torque converter and shift kit but i'm told that it might be a bad idea with the miles i have(78,000). I was just hoping for a little help. thanks and I love this place, its nice to know that there are other people to talk to that are as addicted to diesels as i am!

Yeh I wouldn't mess with the tranny. You can usually get a chip that'll firm up the shifts. Not sure about superchips though.

Does the tranny shift any different without the superchip?
