I tested mine out for a while and it did great for the first few times. Something happened in the valvebody or something that caused a pressure drop and I could never get enough pressure to the high gear clutches again. I still to this day have not pinpointed the problem, but it DID work. I just couldnt find the problem so to get the car rolling again, I put the TCI setup back in it until I figure it out.

mine has worked well . I have to ask if you run a cooler on your unit. I have noticed that it takes more throttle to get rolling then it should. Reverse works outstanding. Am I getting a pressure loss by running a cooler?It still works just seems to require a bit more throttle than I thought it would. Maybe I have the idle speed too low also if that would effect it? Any Ideas?

Tighten your low gear band up a little and it will help the bottom end deal.

I do not run a cooler, and after the oil gets warm it takes a little more throttle but once i get rolling its fine
