4R100 question!

I have been noticeing that at 3/4 - full throttle my truck wont stay in lockup with the o/d off, or on for that matter. I have a spec-rite tc in it. Can it be fixed with tuning? I have a 6 pos chip. Should I also upgrade the vb?

I dont have money falling out of my @ss so dont tell me to go out and buy a 5000 dollar tranny from BTS or JW! If I did have the money I would have already got one!

Thanks Jon

Spraying to get horsepower is kinda like paying a hot chick to go on a date with you. In the end what does it prove because you wont always have it.

Getting Better? Must be all the debris coming off the converter clutch is plugging up the right passages

I meant to ask you if you recalibrated your speedo?

Re: 4R100 question!

Lol was waitin for a comment like that. I talked to David at Swamps they have 2 other guys having the same problem. Its cuz of the tire size. Other than that I love the power, the sound and the smoke I have.

Im going to order that turbo next month. Been lookin to upgrade the valve body too. like a JW or BTS. Get my shifts better so I can really trash that converter. The guy at Spec-Rite said my tc is is good to about 800lbs of torque. If is gives up i can send it in and have it redone and beefed up some more.

Re: 4R100 question!

mine 4R100 has a late shift or no shift in second. have to let off pedal and ease back into it for it to shift.

had a banks six shooter, removed it. installed a JW valve body and no diff so I am going to have to buy a trans from myself....


can't afford a heavyduty Ford O.E.M or a BTS/JW either so stock OEM trans will be going back in.


best part is I'll get a 3/100 warranty for under $2,000

Re: 4R100 question!

Looks like he will be trading PMS(powerstroke mod-syndrome) for a car seat and diapers! He better let that tranny live a little longer.

Congrats Morf!
