I just bought a 05 6.0. when i test drove the truck it was warm. since then i noticed that when i just start up it shifts hard and runs the rpm's up higher for the first few times through the gears. After that is shifts smooth as can be. Any one have any opinion on this?

If you jump in, start it and drive away I would say it's normal. 6'0's like to warm up before being driven.

IDK, The two 6.0's I have owned don't shift all that well unless I let the temp come up a bit.

Thanks for the input. I just wasn't sure if this was common with these motor/trany combos

Ok let me thread jack.

Mine has a noticeable clunk in the 2-3 upshift and it's done it for the last 60k miles. Is this something anyone has seen before or specific to my truck?

Probably your specific truck.

Intermittent Clunk from TorqShift Transmission:
Trucks equiped with the TorqShift may exhibit a clunk when shifting from drive or reverse to park, from reverse to drive, and/or at the 2-3 upshift. If these conditions are intermittent, it is normal play/backlash in the drivetrain. Broadcast Message 7028, 0215.

Well ok that's good I guess. I just wonder why I only get it on that shift.

How many miles on your truck? Did you ever flush the trans? I know you said it has allways done it but maybe the filter was no good to begin with..

82k on the truck. It has had multiple trans services. I am thinking that something is just set up a little loose.


I was hoping that there was some snake oil I could put in there and make it all better

Is your truck tuned?

Well it seems to do it with any tuning, but it is more pronounced with aggressive tuning.
