Trans ?'s

Let me know what you guys think

I have a DP chip 40,60 tow settings...Tranny shifts good now.
I am thinking about upgrading to 180CC injectors as well.

My transmission is still stock. How long will it last if i was to switch injectors and re-burn the chip to power them.

I do not do any racing. but do tow heavy.

There really isn't any good way to answer that question. Since you tow, it may not like that combo to well.

Get the injectors. :Thumbup: Thats basically the setup I have and man does it wake up the beast inside!!

You can also do a little of this ----> :smoke

I still have the stock tranny and am pretty much going to go until it start acting up or shells out. I haven't done a whole lot of towing since the injectors but the tranny has seemed fine so far.

Also I have yet to let the tranny shift up a gear at full throttle because I will guarantee I would have tore it up by now just doing that 5 or 6 times. At 1/2 to 3/4 throttle it feels like it shifts ok but I don't want to push my luck.

PS
When reburning the chip I would reccomend getting a performace setting of like 120 or 140 or an Extreme. I don't use it really often but man it is fun when I do. I let my buddy (that has a stock 6.0) drive my truck and I had it in Extreme and all he could say was "Damn that is rediculous!" Before that all he could talk about was how fast his 6.0 was. I havent heard a word of that since

Double is probably right.
By the way Tony was up doing some tuning on Luke's tuck today. I ran down and had him do a little tweaking on my chip. He also changed my extreme setting to a different burn (not at my request).

After I went and drove it he asked me "Whad ya think"
I couldn't keep the grin off my face while saying "That baby's got some smoke!!" :smoke

I don't know what Luke ended up with exactly for numbers but I think he was 650 or better on fuel and well over 700 with NOS.

I didn't mean that the tranny would last forever I just said that if you drive it easy you can get by for a few months.

I have towed my 12,000 pound enclosed car trailer about 150 miles since the injectors and as long as I didn't hammer down every time I got up to speed the tranny seemed ok. I have also just done some daily driving and a little bit of rodding it equaling 2,000 miles and it seems fine so far.
I will not be suprised if and when it takes a crap though.
