I called and spoke with ATS.
The Co pilot on a non modified By ATS) will hold about 400hp.
When asked why, he mentioned that the transmission has a (my words) a pressure relief valve/circuit, that limits to ~ 160psi( I forget the exact #).
So even if commanded to a higher pressure, the tranny has mechanical reliefs that comes into play.
The ATS modified transmission has the circuit modified. He mentioned ~ 400psi .
So the co pilot then is able to control LARGE power and torque #'s.
Also, they said that the 1st gear sprags are not used(High Failure rate) (I don't recall this forum mentioning that...)
So stock and ATS modded, the first gear sprag circuit is eliminated....
shift patterns, holding the motor in lower rpm/meat of the torque curves, .....
Sounds awesome, cause I'm getting major shudder and the tranny / torque convert comes unlock over 1/2 throttle during 65-100+ runs.
This setup sounds like it really get the power out of the worked 6.7's.
