    The jr. is probably going to be a band aid at this point. The install is not that hard. You have to remove the valvebody and replace some springs and check balls.
    It's a mess but can be done in the driveway.

    Fill out your sig so we know what your truck is.

    How hard do you drive the truck? How heavy do you tow? How much have you played on the higher levels? Did you give the tranny time to learn the new power before you started "playing"?

    3-4 flare... mine did it for a little while before the tranny learned the tune. if you keep adjusting the power the tranny will never learn and continue to act up. also, when was the last time you changed your spin on filter?

    it took me about 250 miles for the tranny to shift right, now i leave in on extreme normally and towing when i engage t/h mode so i dont have to go through the "break in period" every time

    x2 on the break in. It makes all the difference in the world!
