I've only tried upin them 10% in ID's race, but never 25%. Does it seem to shift alot firmer in the 25% and it does in the original sent file?

Yes, the reason im asking is bcz i THOUGHT that my tq converter was going out i brought it to ford and they put a new one in but mine was in perfect shape. The truck makes a crazy rattling noise in high boost situations where i can feel it in the pedal and hear it underneath the passangers side. I have 3 injectors and a low voltage ficm code as of now so im going to change the ficm and see from there, at least i got a brand new tq converter out of it!

the higher you crank them pressures up the more likely you are to blow out a seal in that tranny so just be carefull my .02
