You can burn up the transmission running stock if you drive it wrong. Adding power can increase the chances of premature failure unless you take it easy and drive normal. The problem is it's hard to resist the added power, so it's going to be up to your right foot.

There are mods you can do to help prolong the life, such as a new valve body as well as the bigger cooler.

But if you are gonna go with a multi-position chip I would recommend DP tuner, I dont have mine yet but one of my buddies has one and it is incredible!

You can't argue with that logic. Some chips will bind the tranny from too much pressure. Most often at WOT. Shift kits and Valve bodys are a way to have it both ways. Any mechanical changes like these to the tranny won't change anything else---chip or not. No side effects. :Thumbup:

DON'T go with TS, i hated it, the program is terrible on the shifting, clunking, and dropping into gear, absolutley terrible, i had mine reprogrammed with a GOS custom burn, not very many people have it because it is soooo good, but if you get connections, that works... just don't get a TS... for your trucks sake, i beg you!

I have a TS on mine and have ZERO problems. Shifts good, the worst is when the TC is locking up. Be nice guys.

Where can you see more GOS tunes at? 415 is impressive with just intake and exhaust.

My trucks probs got 350, 215 stock, plus 100hp tuner=315. Plus the twenty added from exhaust, 335, plus the twenty from the intake, 355, plus the FPR shim, .0001hp. 355.0001hp. See, simple math.
