Suncoast/Spartan question

Just got my transmission completely redone. Only thing not suncoast is the solenoid and I have a Spartan tcm. After my 150 miles of easy Driving, I started getting on it more. it looks like the third shift doesn't want to shift over half throttle 75 percent of the time. Just revs and slides back into the previous gear. If I let off just a hair it'll shift. And yes I've reloaded the tune and can't do the half throttle and up procedure of the relearn. Can Spartan get me some tunes to fix it? Or should I try and play with it a little longer. Too soon on the transmission to tell?

Played with it more last night. Wide open is amazing now!!! Just a little bit me a flare on that one shift but I think its getting better. Truck feels much stronger with the 310 now and again...shifting at wide open is nasty fast

You just need to let the new tranny break in

It doesn't act stupid anymore, but the shifts for the first two gears are dash rattling...can I get softer shifting tunes

Mine still does that after about somewhere like 5K miles. I am running the 210 tune and the 3rd shift will have a flare sometimes. It seems to be getting worse too...hmm

i dont have the flare anymore but it shifts hard enough under 2/3 to 1/4 throttle to cause my foot to bounce on and off the throttle which confuses the S**T out of it. it is fine at wide open and in the upper gears, but I need some different tunes

Which 210 are you running, tow/perf? Mine shifts pretty "firm" on this tune but the normal 210 is tame.

My 210 tow shifts fine, the 250 isn't bad but the 275 and 310 are terrible. Jeff is on top of the situation though. However the 210 defuels after a min or two of driving because of my random p2563 code...

Paul, Matt and I are going to be testing from Sunday through Tuesday. As soon as we have a file that we think is appropriate to let a few others try, you will get a file in your email. Thanks, Jeff
