Which Shifting is Best?

Okay, so I'm bout to order some tunes from Innovative, but I'm curious: Which shifting is best for the life and the longevity of the tranny? Mine could be on it's way out, but I want it to last as long as possible.

I have tuning from Vivian now, and the Looney Wild seems to "suck back" when shifting, which I think is defueling, and I've heard that's bad news for the 5R. Needless to say, I'm on the stock tune for now.

The reason I ask this is because on Innovative's website they have different options for shifting, and I'm not sure if the Firm Shifts will be better or not.

Thanks!

Blake

I personally have no idea but I run IDP's tunes and their customer service is awesome. Give them a call and talk to them about it and I'm sure they could help you out.

Re: Which Shifting is Best?

Yeah I just sent them an email. If they don't respond in a few days I'll give them a shout.

But I'm sure there is tons of 5R techies out there just itching to post on this. Help me out guys!

I think I'll go with the Firm shifting, just because after feeling my transmission slip once, I never wanna feel that again.

No big deal, I learn something new everyday.


I guess that's why I bump my threads so often, it's cause I'm eager for knowledge.
