Finally got my trans shifting automatically and holy crap. The alto stage 5 clutches paired with the corvette servo is nuts. I punched it off the line on a wet road and if I wasn't paying attention I wouldn't have known it was shifting it happened so fast

I'm getting my shift points tuned Saturday morning and then more than likely heading to Yankee springs if anyone in the area wants to go. It's supposed to be a really nice day

Harlan is a blast.
Did you try: the waterfall, Cream Puff or Pony Hill?

I did the waterfall and I believe pony hill. That waterfall was awesome, took a lot of skinny pedal to get me up it

Transmission tuning was pretty successful, we got all my shift points bumped up, pressure increased 30% and spend a lot of time running around the block screwing with torque management.

With all that said I ordered parts to rebuild the other 4l60e sitting in the basement. There are definitely a few things I'm noticing that I should have spent more time on the initial build. I'm pretty sure that my lo reverse lip seal is leaking and my pump isn't putting out as much line pressure as it should. Good thing parts for these are so cheap and hopefully the second time around I can do a much better job. In the mean time I will continue to drive the crap out of it and enjoy this nice weather

Amazon has a good deal with my prime account for a torco 2200-2500 stall converter. Will that be too high for me or be just fine?
