Im pretty savy on the PPE . What year truck ? 5 spd or 6

Level 3 is usually the highest to go . 2 to be 100% safe .

I've got the hot +2 and I run mine on level 4 with no problem. Put it up to 5 and she went into limp mode. Man I wish I could afford a built tranny. Stupid economy.

I have always heard 3, but I never ran PPE on my truck. 80hp +/- is about all you will want to give the stock trans. Anymore than that and they backtalk (limp mode).

6 spd can take more HP than 5 spd . It already has some valve body mods to hold more line pressure I think .

Ive seen the newer 6 spds take some serious abuse over the 5 spds . They still give up also . There are many 6 spds that never limped once and go in for a trans job and you find burnt clutches without limp . I think it takes alot more to limp a 6 spd .

It's just always safe to go with 2-3 on 5 spd . Really depends on who your talking to . Some guys want to take it right to the edge with tuning . Some guys want ultimate safe level . So I always just recommend 2-3 . Friend has run 4 on stock LB7 for a long time with no limp and still going with stock trans . Had another friend with LLY that would limp on 3 and we kept it on 2 till he could save for trans . It's hit or miss and really depends on how you drive it and how many miles are on it already . Another friend just launched his LB7 on ppe level 5 . Was all good till he took it to Glamis Dunes on level 5 . Lasted 2 trips up Oldsmobile hill and nothing but reverse . He didnt let it cool down beore going up the hill again . Was on 5 for over a year prior with no limp .

Best things to remember for longer trans life is :

No back to back burm-outs .

If you see high trans temp from abusing , let it cool down before more .

Ease off it on 4-5 shifts .

Sitting stopped power braking it gets the converter really hot .

Change spin on regularly .

If it limps , turn it down 1 level and rethink how your driving it .

Drivers right foot is controlling trans damage ultimately .

I was running my edge on level 4 and had no problems for over 3 years. I got my PPE and have it on level 3 but the edge would kill it for power. I am going to try level 4.
