Tranny recommendations

I just bought the PPE tuner and I'm running the 180hp setting.

Is this ok for a stock allison?

I have had a superchips on it since it left the dealer in 05. I tow a big 5th wheel...other than that I drive the hell out of it. It has 72,000 on it now.
I have had no issues to date. Installed the PPE last Thrusday running the 180hp i think level 4.

i would say that your running on borrowed time with stock transmission, stock tranny takes about 80-90hp extra safely but there are many that have limped the stock trans with that much or less. are you planning on any other upgrades or do you have other upgrades? what year is your truck? look at suncoast stage III or IV, or even ats stage II. PPE is good also, much like the suncoast tranny

I do not plan on any other upgrades....the truck is a 05 lly. Of course I always drop to a towing mode. I have had no issues.

I think its hard to say, and really depends on the truck and taking the time to know how your truck has been treated if you were not the first owner. I have been running a 110 hp tune and i can hammer it through every gear without it limping. But i think a 180 hp tune is definately way over the mark for what a stocker can handle.

180 HP tune on a stock tranny will soon show it's ugly face. It is a matter of time before issues will arise. This has been proven many times.

I think you have that backwards. C5 never goes bad.
