if your running the normal 210 and under tunes it shifts like stock and there is no need to do a trans relearn, other wise it just helps the trans shift better faster. If you don't do a trans relearn it takes like a 100 miles or so to shift better.

Just to clarify.....when you install a tune on a stock truck, the trans memory is wiped clean. The series of accelerations and stops on a high power setting are meant to build memory on the transmission control module in such a way that the trans gets used to the power level and desired shift points of the new beast motor. If you wish to do a relearn, you need to return you truck pcm to stock, then reinstall the tune. It is the coming from stock to tune that wipes the memory clean.

I ran mine close to a qt over full with no probs! I just did the 11b23 reflash from ford & switched to the v2 programming from spartan trans, fluid at the propper level now & no probs at all! For the most part running a trans over full will not hurt anything, if it gets hot & there's to much fluid it might puke a little fluid out of the vent but thats it!!!
