Default PCM Swap

I've been having tranny problems and i was thinking if i should swap the pcm
to an INTENSE from an ZZP. Which one is better and which one has the
better performance.

You mention transmission problems. Do you believe they are PCM or internal? If they are actual problems with the transmission then you should save for a rebuild instead of buy a different pcm.

The only way it would be the PCM is if it didn't write properly. Intense has one of the "softest" trans files. I highly doubt its the PCM causing issues in this case.

If you've been running the PCM for any length of time and have had no issues...I'm sorry to say, most likely you have solenoid going out.

What kind of trans problems are you seeing-it may be something as simple as the MAF failing.
