So you keep the entire balance system intact? What are you doing otherwise? Hard part modification to apply the c2s closer to the center? or is there some more work to be done on the hydraulic side?

Put it back together factory stock. No drilling, no restrictors, and no replacement springs. I would definitely also use Mike's PR spring, and either the Transgo lockup boost valve or a modified stock converter flow valve.

Well he brought the truck back 500 miles after the build for some other work and the 3-4 shift has softened up? Im not a huge fan of how it shifts in general but he loves his tuner and wont let me even try different tuning. Thanks to Logan Lewis aka onebadmaxxx for offering to let me try some of his tuning and see if it fixes it, i would really like to take him up on the offer but the customer doesnt want it messed with.

You cant do anything about someone like that except try to teach them. If it takes, good. If not, so be it. You tried.

No, you tell him to bring his check book when he comes back.
You come back to me with my trans and a TCM tune you are on your own.
Too many idiot so called tuners that don't know how an Allison works are destroying transmissions.

Just for the record this transmission started shifting pretty good once it was done learning, the dude sold the truck so I doubt I'll ever find out how it holds up....

I follow the new owner on Snapchat and he has been doing burnouts and dirt dragging regularly with it. He's currently down at ocean city cruise week absolutely thrashing it and so far so good!
