New Trans

New trans installed today. Went to trans shop to load fresh IDP tunes. Freakin truck is sick in overdrive. Had to baby her in the first 4 gears cause the damn relearn can be harsh. Hopefully bring her on home tomorrow for some snow pics!

You need to do a proper trans relearn to make it shift right and help the transmission last longer.

A relearn takes a few minutes to do, and you dont baby it...

Below is what H&S recommends from their website, but check with your tuner and trans builder to be sure.

Quote:
After H&S tuning is installed, perform each of the following 0-80 MPH runs while in the HOT power level. During this relearn process, you may experience hesitation during shifts, hard shifts, or defuel patterns, all of which are normal:
0-80 MPH @ 25% throttle position, then slow down and come to a complete stop.
0-80 MPH @ 50% throttle position, then slow down and come to a complete stop.
0-80 MPH @ 100% throttle position, then slow down and come to a complete stop.
I dont do mine on the hottest setting though, usually "mild" on my H&S which is around 120hp I think.

Billet torque converter, stronger clutch packs, kolene seals, upgraded valve body, higher shift pressures, trans go shift kit. Truck shifts alot better then a stock transmission and its running cooler as well.

Thanks for the relearn tips.
What brand parts? And what's with the upgraded valve body? Is that what the trans guy told you?

I'm not sure of the brands. Personally, I had a bad experience thru this whole ordeal. Next time I won't farm out my transmission work. My mechanic would have let me pick all different parts and different brands but I chose to go another route and I paid the price time wise. I have another thread on here regarding the issues I encountered. The only thing I'm happy with thru this mess is the fact that I have a trans that shifts better and runs cooler than stock but we'll see in the long haul I guess!!
