I just thought about this today, while sitting on the ice. Should i wait to install a programmer until summer or can i do it in winter? mind you i live in Wisconsin and weather can be pretty ruthless, like it has been for a while now.

I was just thinking this cause everything runs cooler in the winter and i know the tranny has to adjust to it. and the tranny doesnt warm up right way like the engine does. I quess what is the lowest temp. you would install one?

I installed my Predator at a balmy 10 degees with blowing snow.

It wouldnt hurt to run the truck first by getting it up to operating temp, then shut it off and tune it. Just give your tranny time to learn the new found power.

ya i was goin to let it warm up before i installed it; but my main concern was once i put it in, drive it a lil while, and then shut it off. then try to run it like 8 hours later, when the tranny is cooled. cant it hurt the tranny when its learning, if the fluid is a lil cold?

I wouldnt worry about that. Just take it easy for a couple days of stop and go driving.
