Just installed one in my 07.5 LMM. Pretty basic, and I've installed dozens of valve body kits in the past.

Anyway, fired the truck up afterwards and it has a big bump like the converter is trying to lock up, but does it in every gear. This is with the truck sitting still, haven't even backed it off the lift yet. Much harder bump in gears, less in Park/Neutral. Any idea what is going on? I'm stuck, not even sure where to start. Obviously can't drive it like this.

I'm definitely going to be taking my truck to Mike L for a built trans and converter. It's really the only way to safely put this much power to the ground.

With that said I hope the Transgo Jr. helps in the meantime.

Exactly! But in the meantime the JR kit Will help . The trans should shift this way from the factory. For now when your playing put it in tow haul mode to keep the verter locked putting more of your power to the ground.:)
