well got the trans in this afternoon... been putting some miles on it. Everything seems good so far, just still trying to get use to it. This thing shifts good a firm.

Ive got my smarty on #7 right now good just shifts pretty hard i think maybe just like i said havent got use to it. But what should i set my revo at... i tried playing with it earlier didnt seem to make to much difference. Ive been reading some threads on every one asking these questions and see what al they have done. Just wanted to see what yall thought i should try...

also one other thing... how do i know when my kick down cable is adj up just right. i havent messed with mine but i havent just gone out and floored my truck from a roll yet either. Dont want to mess anything up!

Turn that smarty down brotha! I smoked a new tranny gettin too happy with tha right foot and smarty on 7! I would turn it off and run stock for at least 500 miles, but that's just me.

if you smoked a new tranny with less than 500 miles on it, you will fry it if it has 5000 miles on it. probably had some internal leakage or something

if a broken input took out the pump, clutch pack, etc. then yeah, ...but you know, things happen during assembly. sometimes the builder doesn't get a tolerance right or a bad piece when into the tranny. can't necessarily blame yourself if you had a bad transmission.

if it has moving parts, it will break:hehe: :S::stirpot:

Well I don't wanna badmouth a builder on here, it was a mixup during assembly. That was the tranny in my 03 and I was pushing alot of power also. But it got fixed and I never had another issue with it. I'm bout to have him do some work on the tranny in the truck I just bought
