Predator owners come on in....

Well guys I got a 05 LLY yesterday and installed a predator on it. It's set on kill and I've only gotten on it 2 or 3 times. The trans has been flaring a little. The truck only has 36,000 miles on it so I wouldn't think it would be shot already. Knew the owner of the truck and he never had it tuned. Could it be taking some time to learn or what? The truck has been driven around 150 miles since installing the tuner. Should I set it on 85 hp or leave it? My PS always got better mileage with it set on kill mode. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

Set on "kill" is right....as in "kill" the stock trans. Try to keep it under +100hp on a stock trans.

LoL...Yall got to remember I've been a ford guy....The transmission was the least of my problems with a powerstroke! I'll turn it down to 85 Hp setting and see how she does.

85 hp will keep your tranny a lot happier.

Watch those EGTs when you romp on it for long or are towing. It can heat up in a hurry.

keep under 100 horse and no burn outs and trans should last fairly well.
