My question is where do you recomend I have the vaulve screw set. Do looser shift raise the transmission temp or harder shifts?
It'* usually best to keep the mechanical stuff out of PM'* so that the forum can benefit from the knowledge shared.
I tightened mine about 3/4 of a turn. The shifts range from slightly firm when the car is running great, to slightly rude when the car isn't making the power that it should. I have also noticed that the shifts are more aggressive at higher altitudes, so I suspect the adjustment may differ depending on where you live. Adjustments really shouldn't be made more than a 1/2 turn at a time.
Also be sure to keep track of how much you move the screw, because it is very easy to get 'lost'. If you are 2-3 turns in, and your car isn't trying to self destruct at every shift, it'* likely you have a more serious issue.
Soft shifts cause more friction material based wear, and heat from associated slipping, where as too aggressive of a shift can cause a shock load through most of the drivetrain. The risk associated with the latter is a bit lower, but can be downright uncomfortable.
