Very positive shifing, but im going to see if we can do some external things to it to make it shift even harder, i want neck snapping.

get a modulator and crank it up. make sure your motor and trans mounts are good. when I adjust mine up all the way it throws you back.

Has anyone ever attempted a sort of Happy **** on the tranny? I don't know what the signal is like, but if it'* a constant voltage that can be adjusted....

I used to use the Transcepter that plugs in line with the Trani electrical connector and has a dial to enable manually controlling the firmness of the shift.
The only problem with it was I didn't like the hard shifting at part throttle. It is not automatically variable depending on throttle position.

I still have it if you want to try it next summer.

I bet you will like it then.

I used it for a year together with the DHP PCM that also bumped up the pressure and had it for WCBF04. It shifted very hard. But after installing the INTENSE shift kit, it was redundant. The INTENSE PCM I have now does not boost the Trani pressure.

I brought it to WCBF06 for experimentation but never had time to try it.

Would still like to play with it for racing and fun.

It only takes a couple of minutes to plug it in. The only problem I have is making room to manipulate the connector with my Air box in the way.

I just looked for it to check the price that I remember was around $150. US but noticed that PFYC does not sell it anymore.
Maybe too many complaints of blown trani'*.
