Tranny durability

Looking into getting the raped ape tune from drew, studded with a pmax. What all can I expect from this tune over the canned tunes I got with the sct. And also my truck is in the upper 170k range on miles, will my transmission be safe?

Re: Tranny durability

You'll notice a big difference in power and shifting will be a lot better. As far as the trans goes you should be fine.

Re: Tranny durability

As long as tuning is spot on, there shouldnt be an issue. However, if you slip the 3-5 shift, even once, the clutches will be toast. That is the weakest link in these transmissions. I have a strange strategy code on my PCM and Drew has been having a hard time with the higher power tunes on my truck (shifting). The street king and tow tune is fine, but i tried street runner and a non-studded raped ape tune and the PCM had no idea what to do at 2/3-3/4 throttle as far as shifting goes. WOT was absolutely fine. His customer service is tremendous. Talked with me on saturdays and sundays reguarding my issues. Sent me multiple programs without hesitation. I'll definitely continue to give him my business. I just hope he can one day figure out this trans shifting issue.

I love my street king tune for a daily tune, but i am craving more power now and then...i'm not going to push it though until i put studs in.
