It'* back, it'* running, and it'* doing it smoothly. They replaced the transmission mount that was failing/failed... I can tell when it downshifts 2-1 lol. Almost feels like the tires want to break loose.

I'm waiting for the ecu to re-learn the ported LIM. When I first started driving it, it seemed somewhat sluggish. Then after about 30 miles I put in $10 of 89 octane because I had a gas card and I could, hopped on the highway, and it all went great from there. No more clunks, no more weird vibrations and everything. I'm sure it had nothing to do with 89 octane though lol.

Only thing I don't like is it still takes more than half throttle to unlock tc going up a hill @ 55 mph. How do you adjust the kickdown cable to be a little bit more responsive? I think that may help my gas mileage out as well.

You don't have a kickdown cable. Invest 100 bucks in an INTENSE PCM or adjust your TPS. You'll get quicker kickdown that way.

I didn't think so.. but I swear somebody mentioned that before.

Intense PCM will be coming around Feb... so I'll wait.

In the mean time, I'll play with the TPS. That doesn't have any negative affect on anything else does it?
