I got a tune and was impressed at the shift performance at WOT. It really barks the tires into 2nd now. I do need to call and see how to change it so it shifts differently when not at full or 3/4 throttle. When taking off at a normal rate it shifts into 2nd almost at once and 3rd by 30mph. Probably helps mileage, but I want it to diffrent..

lol automatics do that on thier own, you may not realize it but, you could me cruising at 5pmh, and really your in 5th.. when you get on the throtle, throtle pressure overcomes governer pressure, (pressure built up relative to speed determins what gear youll go in) and youll drop to the gear that youd get the most go from (to maximize rpms in the shortest gear) at 5mph and you were to pin it,youd probobly drop back to 1st

Yes, but the SCT I believe can program them to shift upon take off at specified rpm or MPH.

Questions for anyone who installed a higher speed torque converter:

What's normal drivability like?

What's best street stall speed with 3.73's but that will also help with racing?

What's involved in installation? And/or cost of installation?

Is anything else, besides the converter, needed to do the swap?

What kind of performance difference is there?!

Thanks!

Auto Transmission question.

Already searched the forum and could not find an answer.
Ford advertises it as a 5-speed Automatic. From what i have found out about the transmission online, it seems to be a four speed transmission+OD.
(with the OD being the 5th gear).

So my question: Is the AutoTrans in the 05-06 Mustang?:

4-speed + OD

or

5-speed + OD


P.S. New to the forum, just bought a Legend Lime V6 + Pony Package on Friday. Extremely Happy
