Question Transmission Dummy

I have a 2001 PSD with the 4R100 auto trans. I have a edge programmer giving it 80 ponies or so. My trans slips like crazy shifting from first to second, and again from third to fourth. IF I drive like a grandma it will short shift and shift hard. I assumed since I have 240,000 miles on my truck that it was probably too much power for the worn out stock torque converter so I replaced it with the Banks tc and trans command they suggested. After spending 1300 bucks on the parts and a few hours of my labor, the change.... nothing. Once it slips and finally shifts it will actually bark the tires. I have done some searching online and found some insight that it could be the solenoid block. Does this sound correct? If so where can I find one that isn't used? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

try getting rid of the edge first they are know to be terrible for trannies and the banks trans command and get custom tuning from one of the many out there TW, DP, SWAMPS, ect.... that should help your problem as they will actually control your tranny much better

Thanks for the friendly welcome!

I am originally from Missouri, but my job took me to the Chicago area. BTW, I put the edge in it to try to keep it from slipping. I used to have a superchips programmer and it slipped as well. My transmission buddy back home said it was just my tc locking up. The edge was supposed to increase the shift firmness. I have a buddy up here that has a 2001 with a bullydog and he is willing to let me borrow it to see if it makes a difference so maybe I will try your idea.

Thanks again.

np this site is FULL of helpful info if you dig deep enough or post up what you need it may need a rebuild but if you just had it out the tc is know good correct? if so i would have them check the clutches and install a shift kit in it if you can

No way a tc can cause a slip in 2nd or 3rd. 240,000 miles and you start adding horsepower??? Not a good idea. Go ahead a get your trans rebuilt before you destroy the new tc. fyi.... Most trans shops will not warranty a rebuilt trans unless it has a new converter. Not a new cconverter that has already been run in a slipping trans.

When I had my edge it seemed to slip also I just put in My DP tuner and it doesn't seem to slip anymore. The edge did it only when I got on it though if I just drove around normal it was fine.
