    Default performance tune question

    Just wondering if anyone knows if I will need to get a new black bear performance tune if I installed a TCI shift kit and a TCI servo kit? I am guessing yes since it will be changing the shifts.

    Well from what i've heard man it's best to get the Black Bear Custom Tune or any other tune after you have completed all your mod's to the engine your wanting to do so when you want the tune you can get the best and most outta everything you have installed... idk if you would need one or not maybe someone else would chime in. I was just letting you know what other's told me to finish the engine mod's along with exhaust and everything before hand.

    I would say you would need a retune as most tuners play with the trans.

    Most transmission shops should be able to install the shift kit and servo right? I don't have enough time to do it myself and want it done right.

    Yes any trans shop can install the servo's.
