Sounds like you are on the right track and finally found someone that knows what is going on. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. I'm sure the headaches are getting annoying.

They certainly are. My kid is so pissed off about missing the blessing too. But happy to move on to a Michigan based company that I can go right to the shop.

Much better to be able to have someone local work on it.

If you're tired of the jeep, I'll come pick it up tonight. I think I've got an extra $150 sitting around here somewhere.

No reason you can't take the XJ to the blessing.

Yes there is.....because the money I was going to spend for the weekend is now being spent on yet again fixing the computer and tuning. The local guy is a little more expensive. Hopefully worth it.
Not giving up on the jeep yet Jim......

Thank you Tom for taking the time to come out and help !!!

Trans shifts fine, definitly a computer AND harnass issue. (Tell me how happy I am ) Was a nice 10 minute 1/4 mile drive back down my street with the motor loading up and not wanting to go anywhere. But at least we know it's not the trans or motor.

His answer..."there's your problem" The 93 4l80 is a type specific trans. and will not work with the newer drive by cable computers. He said I need to use a stock computer and have it set it to pull no codes. He still wants Tom to look at the trans tonite before I bring it to him to make sure it is fully functioning and not part of the issue. Once that's done he can go over specifics with me and either make a program and computer for me to put in or bring it to him to put in and tune there.

I had Kevin call Jimsperformance this morning to pick his brain. When I called Jim back after talking to Coreys guy he said he hadn't even talked to Kevin and had no idea why the 93 would be any different. Regardless he agreed to send the $200 back that he charged for the computer.

So after Tom checks it out tonite I will call the new place back and give him the findings and figure out the game plan. Probably will just trailer it down there to have him do it all so I won't have to worry. Wish I knew about this guy first but at least we are on the right track now.

You must have missed this post. Also, Tom did some homework as well and found the same information. Not ONLY is it the computer but Tom has to change a few wires on the harnass as well. So while i'm happy noone else had issues with Jimsperformance, I have nothing good to say about his work. Customer service and personality??? Yes, top notch. The job he did for me?? Twice......... Horrible.

Also, the MAS is brand new and it's Delco, not aftermarket. We swapped it out with a diff one at Badlands to be positive. No fix. Ran it without it...no fix.

I wasn't aware that propane injection could shift transmissions..........hmmmmm I say go propane injection

99+4L80e is designed for the pcm OS your using, just sayin. Pretty unfair to blame Jim for your lack of research before sourcing parts IMO.

99+ maybe....mines a 93

First computer he sent to me did not have a driver for drive by cable. All he had to do was open the case and look, he admitted he didn't. HIS FAULT

2nd computer may work for a newer 4l80E but NOT for a 93 or older. ( my 4l80 is a 93)I know when I talked to him I told him what everything was and what years.

ALSO....Kevin had to add wires to the harnass that Jim left off AND Tom has to change a few of them as well.
I paid Jim to do the job and gave him the info on what I was running, I absolutely put it in his lap. I paid the man to do the job because I can't. It's not like he messed up 1 thing. The entire job was botched. If I pay someone to do a job it is then THEIR responsabilty to do the research. NOT MINE. I commend his customer service, always have.....and I realize others sing his praises.........but I will NOT take the blame for lack of research when that's what i paid someone else to do. So you can take your high and mighty comments and get the fukc out of my build thread.

Gotta agree with all this. I would be in the same boat.
I look at all the advice that has been given here by several what I would call knowledgable people and it hasn't all matched.
