Everyday driving is pretty damn good right out of the box (after going through the set-up wizard to set tire dia, gear ratio, trans type/config, etc.) but with the bigger cams u are going to want to raise lock-up speed and shift rpm points at WOT.
My only real bitch about it is if for whatever reason u are holding a gear manually and u shift 1rpm above where it's set....u get the limiter and no shift until u are out of the throttle enough to rpm back down to the set rpm. I was on the phone many times with many clueless "TECH" people at TCI and FAST only to discover they should not be breathing my air, let alone giving advice or answers to questions about their own products
I am pretty sure a software update will fix this, and there may be an even newer version of the t-com software out by now. My car always sticks the 60 hard and it stays in d3 for a pass at the track. There might be certain situations where holding it in 1st while feathering the throttle on the street, and this is where TCI's logic is fucked up. It should shift at "x" rpm OR above at wot if manual shift above that rpm....it does not.
If u know that going into it, u will be happy with it
