I didn't find anything about it on swamps site. It seems pretty easy from DI's instructions.

Has anyone ever used a 3 way switch instead of a 2 way? I was thinking it would be nice to be able to fully lock it, unlocked so the tuning takes over, and fully unlocked to completely overide the tuning. I've never seen them done this way, but it would seem beneficial. I have talked with a few people that would like a 3 way switch, but no one is sure how to do it. ANy inout would be great.

So you know how to do it? Could you share it with us?
I don't really feel like working that hard this morning and drawing up a diagram for something that makes no since as to why you would want to do it.

WHY do you want to be able to have the TC unlocked all the time? It just makes no since at all. All that does is heat up your tranny having it unlocked.

Now if you want my diagram for the regular TC lockup switch I can post that.

May be good in pulling??
While pulling you want the TC locked so you don't have any slip so you have more power to the ground.

And like I said if the TC is unlocked there is a lot of friction and will heat up the tranny a LOT faster.


Am I missing something here? :shrug:

I'm glad you're see you're hear to question everything everyone does. Way to answer a serious question with a smart### question. Thanks buddy.

And how would you do that directly out of the hole in second low with a sled behind you without snuffing the charger? I know it's done often, but the switch would be SELECTABLE, so they could lock whenever THEY wanted.

heavy sled, tight track. sometimes a locked tc doesn't always yield the best results when the sled is dragging you down.b Unlock the tc to keep the rpm's up.

Then I would do it with 2 switches. One that will disconect the PCM to the trans all together. And another that will allow you to lock it if you wanted.

If you want I can draw up a diagram for ya on that.

When the sled drops at the end it may bog the motor down. Unlocking it would keep the rpm's up, keeping the motor in a more effective range.

That seems like it would work with 2 switches. After thinking about it, I could have my sled pulling tune unlocked at all times and completely control it with a lockout switch
