PCM question

So I got my act together this morning and installed the valve body from the Diesel Site and the mag-hytek pan. Took it for a spin and boy howdy does it shift. First to second is harsh with second to third being what I was looking for. My mechanic neighbor went for a spin tonite with me and asked if the pcm will relearn for the changes I made. He seemed concerned with the 1st to 2nd shift, so I set the evo back to stock to ease up on the driveline. Does the pcm in the obs relearn or am going to pull the valve body to adjust to what I want?

the pcm doesnt relearn but you may need to get a new tune made for the trans since hte evo will give the trans too much pressure, as the valve body already increases the pressure.

Called Diesel Site yesterday. Bill said to disconnect the battery for 20 minutes. The truck does not shift as hard as it was before, plus I hooked up my equipment trailer and the shift softened up to where the it feels firm not harsh.

I see your in Doylestown.I used to live in the Twins at Sandy Ridge. How are the house prices holding up?
