I've been banned from Camaro5 3 times. When not properly medicated I'm an obnoxious mother ******. Even with medication I'm still an *******.

That's a quote from my mother by the way.

Nice work DietCoke.

Here are 3 cal files for the optishift that I used mostly.

Drag strip cal for WOT lockup and ~7100 shifts (you may have to adjust MPH based on your HP, mine was just right for a 650hp car running bottom 10s.)

Street drive cal with ~7000 rpm shifts

Dyno cal so the car will lockup in third on a dyno and not kickdown to a lower gear.

I've given these to a few people by request, they may be a good starting point for someone here.

Also, I apologize but the pictures are long lost to time. Not sure what happened but they are gone

Optishift/US Shift software. It comes with the controller, and you can download it from the website too.

Hey Calvin. Diet may chime in here, but I can probably answer the question for him. I have chatted with him quite a bit while doing my swap. The pictures no longer exist. He had them saved on a drive, and they are gone. If you have some specific questions, just throw them up here and I will do my best to help you out. The swap is pretty straight forward if you are coming from a manual car.

Default Shifter Gate

With stock shifter...
How does it to shift 1 2 3 OD? I'm only seeing A and M.

D is OD and M is 3. If you file away the stop inside the actual shifter mechanism, it will go down to 2 and 1. When you find the 1 position, epoxy/jb weld a new stop on there. Look in the area where the detents are on the shifter, and you can see that there are already detents for more then the gears that is uses from the factory, it makes it really easy to modify.
