what performance upgrade to the transmission do you speak of?

The only problems I have had, which I would like fixed so I can, is when I manually shift my transmission from 1st to 2nd to 3rd if I wait to shift right before red line you can hear a grinding noise like an automatic clutch is slipping.

Is the "performance" upgrade to the auto just a pressure increase to make the transmission shift harder, or is it to relieve built up pressure?

You ever get that WOT issue fixed, sounds like you need to dick with the tuning a bit. do you have an AFR gauge? WOT should be open loop so idk if it would be an AFR issue after all! if you do anything get the map3 ecu instead of the AEM Fic. have the stock ecu run your stock 6 injectors and have teh map3 ecu run the 7th injector. i have heard the map 3 is pretty easy to tune!

??? A grinding noise like an automatic clutch is slipping? No such thing. If there is a grinding noise then you probably have some issues with the planetary gears. Auto clutch slippage does not make a noise other than RPMs going up.

To be honest I have no clue what all brand names they put in the transmission. I just told the performance shop to put in a beffy torque converty, valve body, gears and clutches lol. works great and shifts quick and pretty smooth for a performance build. specially under high load. Trans arent my area of specialties as you can see..

Cost me 2500.00 and im sure if you told the shop the performance parts you want that any shop could install, but the warranty is what they might get you on. Thats why I chose a specific transmission performance shop to do mine who has been doing trans for 26 years.

No it still likes to go lean on me at random times during pro longed boost. As long as i just do half throttle from a stop it has plenty of get up and gives me not fits. I still need to have it tuned, but just dont feel like puting anymore money into it right now since it still drives for the most part fine. I put the stock SC pulley back on for now till I get it tuned which seems to keep it from going Lean less often under boost.

yeah I hear alot of people saying that. I probably would have been fine not doing the Trans upgrade, but since it was already giving me a fit I just went ahead and did it. My trucks only got 120k miles on it... just a little less than yours lol.
