I took Silverback to an unknown tuner a while back and he did not really know how to tune the Marauder's transmission. I'm left with an unwieldy tranny tune.

So my questions are: In part throttle operation, at what speed should the 1-2 shift be made, and the 2-3 shift and the O/D? At what speed should the torque converter lock up, 45 or 65 MPH?

In WOT opperation, Is 6K RPM for at the 1-2 shift OK? What RPM for the 2-3 shift? What about O/D in WOT operation, left off?

The car has 4:10's and a 3500 stall converter.

Any dyno tuning shops that you can recommend within a days journey from Shreveport, La. would be helpful. I know about Mo's.

Thanks for your help.

Save your money with Mo's. His trans tune is lack luster at best. IMO Zack had the trans tune spot on

Trust me on this. I offered Jeff (Mo's main shop guy) a copy of Zack's trans shift schedule and he was too proud to use it

To be honest Pat I would need a few days to reply. Here's why. I would need to load zacks tune then datalog the info so I can pass it along to you.

As far as dyno tuners go I would seriously consider JMS Chips in Lucedale, MS well within a days drive from LA

No need to go through all that trouble. Thanks for the recommendation on a tuner. Worth a call or a visit at least.

Pat, Lidio did my trans tune & has the part-throttle shifts feeling 'normal' to Gina. My WOT 1-2 shift is at 6400 (with Crower cams). Same for 2-3. I always leave OD off at WOT. Power shifts are firm but not harsh, as with some prior tunes. Not a days drive, but could be a long weekend!

Pat, I will look for your file when I have time and see what's up. When I drove the car it seemed fine.
