Php Phoenix installed

Well my chip came in the mail yesterday so last night I installed and to my surprise worked first try. Was pretty happy about that as the PCM is kind of a pain to line up just right to get that bolt to thread through the firewall. Really didn't want to try and redo that. Well my first impressions are, why did I wait so long. It's only been a few months that I have had the truck but I had tried to talk myself out of the chip. It runs amazing and shifts way better. My chip was shipped for just over 300. Gauges are going in Thursday when my neighbor can help me. I ordered it with 40,65 and 80 tow, 100 perf (will be used when not towing) and 120 race. I don't need to be told I should have ordered this or that tune, I bought it and am happy with it. So if you are thinking about a chip, the Phoenix is a very reasonable option. I will update after the 4th of July with towing impressions.

Now what next to help prolong the tranny? 6.0 cooler, deeper transmission pan or upgraded torque converter?
