Tranny shifting ....

You all are going to see alot of me here ... so please bare with me !!

The truck has a fresh built tranny with aprox 1000 miles on it (waiting on original owner to send me documents)

The truck has 315's on it (aprox 33") and I'm assuming stock gears ..

The tranny seams to shift fine while cruising and mild excelleration, but kinda "searches" when you play with throttle.

When I was a kid, (well, back in 95) my old boss purchased a '95 PS New.

He had me install a 'kit' on the tranny. Basically an inline box that consisited on un-pining the harness plug, and running wires into the box and then others into tranny.

It made a big differnce in getting rid of the 'cadillac' shifts.

Any thoughts on improving shifts ?

Smooth shifts = increased temps ..... not good

Hypermax offers valve body uprgrades too ...

The kit was a shift controller from the likes of Banks Power. It firms up the shifts and slows the commands from the PCM to make smooth yet powerful shifts. This is older technology that where it is still available installing a V-Body, like Shane said, will serve your Trans a lot better. Also, today's tuners are able to build those older shift controllers right into their tunes when you buy a chip for your truck.
