    Default Programming Transmission, Need Advice

    Hey guys, so my buddy is thinking of selling me his programmer on the cheap and is going to let me use it to see if I like it. So my question is what should I set my shift firmness up too? Should I mess with the shift points? If so where should I put them? The truck is an 05 Silverado 1500 5.3L with a 3.23? tranny im assuming, its the stock tranny.

    before you do this see if it's vin locked? If it is it will not work on your truck. Also do you have a CAI or Exhust system?
