Starwheel?

howdy folks,
I've just got a quick question. Will turning the starwheel full forward on a 97 with a stock auto tranny hurt ithe tranny any? Don't really tow much, just drive it. Truck has 48,000 miles on it so the tranny is in good shape.

Thanks,
Willy

Turning the Starwheel doesn't really add power, it just bumps up the pre-boost fueling. So the answer would be, No it will not hurt your trans

Sliding the AFC wont make any difference other than just like the starwheel it only controls low boost fueling. Power increases are achieved by moving or preferably cutting or grinding the fuel plate below the AFC.

With your tranny in that good of shape, I would add a aftermarket torque conv./ valve body combo then you wont worry for a long time!! Cause the sliding off the AFC housing/starwheel just leads to YOU wanting more power!! Then this will definately lead to tranny "pre-failure" !!!!!!!!!!!!

if i was you i would just take the anaroid out of it then it will roll the coal!! wont add much and the tran will be fine! all it does is control when the fuel comes in on the low end i did it to my buddies 97 and it made it alot more snapy on the bottom end!

Welp folks I got greedy yesterday and I slid my plate forward. And my AFC housing. I like it alot. I'm hopefully going to be getting an HTS valve body here in the next couple mounths. Will I cause any major harm to it running it like this for a few months without anything done to the tranny?
