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.Tater -- South Dakota
1999 K1500 5.7L -- "Willy"
-THIS TRUCK IS NOW DEAD THANKS TO A DRUNK DRIVER!
2005 1500 Silverado 5.3L-- "Herbie"
-100% Stock (for now)
