trans is shifting hard because the tunes are adjusted for hard shift points banging is better than slipping

I can through in my $.02. I have had the php 6 pos since last March. My Autos 1st to 2nd went out last month. My truck would act like it would stall for a split second then slam into 2nd and if you were on the go pedal hard it would bark 2nd hard. I completely agree that its better for your tranny to shift hard, however if you are barking 2nd on a 10,000 lb truck with 35" mud tires and a stock tranny it can't be good. PHP said that the trucks have a defect in the valve body and some trucks will actually "hang" in between gears, build up enough pressure then slam in 2nd. I don't know a lot about Auto trannys, but I do know $3K later I now have a 6 speed.

Remember: Auto Trannys are the gateway drug to gayness.

Quick shifts are better than sloppy, heat creating shifts. If you don't like it, send it back, tell him what your preferences as far as shifting are, and he can change it for you.
I'd at least get a valve body for it. Factory Tech, BTS, or John Woods make great ones.
FWIW, I've got 319k on my stock 4R100 . . .
I would DEFINITELY get that cooler, but I would take my time flushing it out VERY thoroughly.

if you don't wanna pull the trans defiantly do the valve body. an upgraded torque converter would be a good investment

I tend to like firm more. Not super soft so you don't feel it, but not jarring cause it makes me cringe. Just in the middle, a good little kick.
