Did you put the t/c in if not do you know who did and are you sure the trans isn't upgraded?

with just the hypertech programmer and an upgraded tc, your trans should last a long time if you keep it cool. Invest in some guages if you haven't already done so. That is assuming of course that your tranny has no current problems that you are unaware of.

Oh and whenever i put it in reverse you have to wait for a couple seconds for it to engage is that the way the valve body is made or what? The guy i bought it from said dont worry about it he never had any problems with it he pulled it and had it rebuilt with the billet torque converter in it. it seems fine i cant seem to find any problems with it

My tranny on my dodge did the same thing for about 9 months everyone said its fine and then it exploded. There wasnt one pieces still intact it wasnt even under a load when it went stopped at the stop sign and wouldnt go any farther just made some god awful noises. GET IT CHECKED OUT SOON.

Its in the valve body... There is a valve in there that gets hung up and causes the slow reverse engauge...

Gauges... Pyro, Tranny and boost are the normal three... You can add Fuel pressure to that or oil pressure, water temp... and on and on...
