Can the ole 4R100 take it? Idea=good or bad?
So I'm looking seriously at a DP chip deal. For now I'm only going to go for the anti-theft position, the 80hp Economy, and maybe a tow tune. I'm not 100% sure. I wanna do that for the economy part, but also I hear that over 80hp, over stock hp, out of stock injectors aint gonna happen anyway. I'm planning on leaving the stock injectors and turbo in there for now. My biggest concern is, will my tranny shatter to bits and cost me 5 grand, or should it be fine? It's the original automatic tranny, almost 188k miles on it. It has been used for towing
for the majority of its life. It does not slip, the fluid smells good and looks good in color. I just don't wanna spend $300-$350 and cost me a ton for a new transmission. Cause I can't pull that off right now.
What do you think? Should I do it? Or should I build the trans first to prevent a big-money problem. One last thing. Anybody with the DP, do either of those tunes make smokeysmoke?
