Does this do the same thing as a tcm tune or does a tcm tune do more then just max out line pressure?
Same as TCM Tune...

Soooo then why do people spend the money on getting the tcm unlocked, buying the shit ton of credits, and for the tcm tune when you can buy a 50 dollar part, drop a pan that has a reusable gasket and some tranny fluid?

Some people want an altered shift strategy, not just a pressure mod. Depends on what you're looking for. Like why pay the $5-10k to tune a L5P when you can buy a used Corvette that'll be faster than a tune-only L5P? If you have to ask, it's not the product you're looking for. I don't personally see the value proposition there, yet they sell plenty.

What makes sense for one person and situation doesn't always make sense for every person and situation.

Default L5P Tuning

Thereís more too it than just a shift strategy when you buy a trans tune. This is why mike has said he doesnít like building trans for people with tcm tunes as he doesnít know whatís in there that may cause issues. If one is just changing shift points then maybe thatís acceptable I dunno what his thoughts are on that. This is the only changes Iíve ever made to any of my trucks to avoid other issues. Doing this and a dummy solenoid are the best choices imo.

Sadly you still have to get your ECU unlocked, which is $1800 by itself.

That will be dropping soon. Too many other people working on getting around that or making a better process

People are all game to delete one until they see the price tag. Also only a couple places offering tuning. Trying to get details on what needs to go is hard. I talked with a buddy that deleted one. Said it was a pain. Even the urea tank can't be removed yet without a harness.

Did not know that, very interesting.

What I don’t get is that ALOT of people are willing to spend 4k on just rims that are ugly and pointless 24x12 or something stupid like that, but bitch and complain about spending that much for deletes.
