Will a stock trany hold up to a run with the PPE HOT+2 on an 02' rclb 4x4? I wanna try and shut my bro-in-law up with his 97' Cobra. Just once is all I need.:D

Make sure you have $4000 in the back just in case you break it;)

That is a lot of extra power and if you want it to shift well you sre going to have to let it learn to handle the power, if it can. Also, once you try the power you probably wont want to turn it down. I know i don't on my VA bu tforce myself too, still saving for trans.

One other thing, you might want to launch in four wheel unless ytou have a locker. I don't and mine will spin the tire off the line and when it shifts if i'm not careful. I lost to a hemi that way:mad: . Then again you might not want to risk hurting your t case.

how fast are you going for the 4-5 shift? It wouldnt be a 1/4 mile race, more like an 1/8th.

in an 1/8th mile i dont know if you will be hitting 5th, but it is still a lot of stress for a stock tranny! but hey if you blow it up that jsut gives you an excuse to get a built one!! :grd:

The 1/8th mile is just about where my truck will shift into 5th how tall of tire are you running?? The PPE does raise the rpms a bit so if I shift it my self I can run across the 1/8th around 77-78 mph and still be in 4th. Before you do it make sure to put your truck into fast learn and give it time to adjust to all the power.

Sounds like an opportunity to learn an expensive lesson...

Do a search on "Adaptive Learning." If you put big power to a transmission that has previously experienced only stock or mildly increased power levels and then hammer it right after install, very unpleasant, expensive things happen.

Perhaps members who have tried it will chime in...

It might help a little, if you don't mind, adding your truck info to your signature, thanks.

Sounds like another opportunity to test power on stock equipment to me. I will volunteer to go along for the experince and will bring a digital camera for proof of rapture... Just in case that is.... Let us know and listen to these guys about letting the tranny learn. See what minimal mods should be done to play with that mod..:cool:

Just make sure your not introducing the Alli to a level it has not learned yet! Otherwise you will limp it for sure.

You would still lose anyway unless he does not know how to drive, so why risk it?

2 weeks should be more than enough. You'll notice that when you load a new tune that's got a little more hp that the shifts will seem to 'flare'. Once that stops and it starts shifting more like stock it should be good to go.

Not sure if it helps to let the tranny learn first, but I had great luck running predator 85 w/ boost stick for quite some time before my tranny limped. And that wasn't until I loaded the 100 hp tune.
I always kept a light foot for a while after loading a new tune.
