The purpose of the modulator is to control transmission pressure. The tighter you turn that screw, the higher you have the pressure. Now, i told him to crank it up all the way, because i figured the transmission couldn't make more pressure than it could handle, especially due to his recent rebuild [just over 1,000miles]. Now, on a transmission with weak seals it could damage something or anything along that line. But I don't think anyone should try this until i have my car running once again. Because if my transmission can handle it, then i'm sure anyone'* can.
My mom was recently hospitalized, and i have to take care of her for the time being, so i can't run for a new battery just yet. she has to go to some doctors and i may be able to sneak off to walmart while she'* there or waiting or something.
Now, the firmer shifts, quicker shifts, more responsive transmission whatnot.. that is all due to the increased line pressure. Because our transmissions are set to slip quite a bit, because we have a 'luxury' car [more just not a performance car], and this helps counter-act this.
One last thing, the modulator can hold the extra spring tension, that'* no problem. It says specifically in the instructions, "TRANSMISSION DAMAGE MAY OCCUR." I believe Alec and I both have the exact same modulator.. i believe.
Please, let me re-itterate this once again. DO NOT go against the modulator'* instructions until I have tested this myself. You may put your transmission under great risk of damage, so please do not do it as of yet. I will be sure to post my findings when the time comes.
