new beefed up trans

Well had my trans go out in my 2002(late make 01)anyways I have a edge cs evolution prog and a cold air intake,anyways had the trans beefed up,cromoly and carbon clutch and dics,3 stage converter new solenoids and everything else,spent a lot of money so this thing wouldn't go out again,plus plan on adding more hp this summer and also made that clear to the builder.Got the truck back 3 days ago and seemed to be shifting good,well in the last day or so seems like is hitting the gears a little hard,well I have been babyn it a bit ,just to be safe and let her brake in a bit,well today was my 300 mile check up and on the way up to the shop,i got on it a bit while taking of and 1-2seemd like it was slipping or taking too long before it would hit second,like to the point were my rev limiter would kick in,so I take one of the mechanics for a ride and he tells me oh that trans aint slippin when u put it to the floor like that they all do that,well lets just say I was about to reach over and chock him till he was purple,i looked at him and said im not some dumb *** its either slipping or something is not right,does anybody have any helpful pointers for me.By the way reset my programmer nothing,was going to adjust my shift points on prog. tomorrow thinking maybe new converter is a much higher stall.

I'm a obs guy, but my question is weather the torque converter is locking up or not? Was it like this before the rebuild? I've chipped my truck and it made a big difference in the shifts. Other option is a BD valve body.

Lock at BD diesel's line of shift products. Call them too. They are great with helping you solve problems. I've got a BD exhaust brake on the 99 Dodge and there great when I was fighting Electrical tranny shift problems. Turned out it had a really that was supposed to have a jumper in it.

No,before it was slipping from 2nd to 3rd,and also overdrive,suppost to be a 3disc converter(recon),and I know the converter is locking in at 3rd and 4th,cause it shows on my programmer,and shifts smooth at times and harder at other times.

Change the programmer first or return to stock and see what it does. Those Edge programmers are known to toastify the 4r100.

Not gonna happen that I know of. I'd return it to stock and see what's up after that. IMO, a TS with custom tunes is what I'd do but to each his own. You'd chit if you felt the difference.
