I don't have a trans only tune, but if they are like any of the custom tunes, the same tune in my truck may respond diffrent in someone elses truck. To many variables- gear ratio, tire size, weight, ect. Imo contact several vendors and tell them your mods and what you plan on doing with it- stock, banks tunes, edge, if your gone to tow and how much tow weight.

From everyone i hear Innovative Diesel does better to the best with their trans tuning in their custom tunes, your SCT alone if you set it all right should do your trans really well

2004 F-350 CC LB King Ranch. Under the Hood SCT w/Innovative street tunes by Eric, Hot FICM tuned by Power Hungary, custom built 4" intake with huge afe filter, Intake elbow, 3"down pipe to 5" straight piped stack, EGR block off, Zoodad Mod, CCV mod, Complete EGR delete, The Big 3 cable upgrade w/ batts under cab, Autometer pillar guages, Boost, Trans, EGT. APR studs sitting in box ready for install
Suspension 2.5inch leveling kit. Stock King Ranch 18" rims with 33inch Nitto A/T.
Truck is now pushing 134K miles an running strong.

i have only used tunes for two companies. first was spartan diesel tech and they stopped tuning SCT's and now have there own tuner/dashdaq. now i run innovative diesel xstreet tune and really like it (especially the trans shifting compared to the hybrid race). have not had any reason to changes tunes back to the spartan tunes i had. i may try my spartan custom economy tune again or the ASE and see if i can get any better mileage.

Three Innovative Custom Programs for your vehicle. Custom programs include: Xtreme Street or Xtreme Race, Street, Tow, or Economy. Options available are: Aggressive Tow/Haul Mode, Turbo/Exhaust Braking, Firm Shifts, Continuous Convertor Lock when decelerating, Convertor Lock in 2nd gear up. Not legal for use on pollution controlled vehicles or in the state of California. For racing and off-road use only.


I bolded the one's that aren't aggressive, did you feel the tranny slipping before you put the tune on?

Well If you want, take the tune off til you get money for a rebuild or a new trans.

If that's the case then,tranny files won't help you. If your not ready to get the trans fixed stop beating on your truck.
