    Tach reading hi, TCC not locking up

    Not to sure how they function mechanically. But they are cheap and easy to change. You will need 5-6 litres of fluid. Lots of people are using dexron6 and a filter kit. When removing the filter you will need to remove the old o-ring without damaging the hole

    Do I have a problem?

    I am on this same basic "newbie" set-up. and as it has been discussed many times over on here, a big question is what is the next step?. Alky, bigger Turbo, or maybe a better intercooler.

    Paint protection test

    I just applied griots 3 in 1 spray on ceramic coating. this is not an expensive coating that lasts 5 years but it will last probably 2 years on a sunday driver. for the price the performance is top. very easy to apply

    Stock WOT shift Rpm's

    I have been doing a lot of reading and getting mixed answers. just installed the revolution x 2800 stall TC. i am seeing as high as 5225rpm 2-3 shift on the scanmaster WOT. is this acceptable. stock motor and trans. not sure what it was with the D5. is the stall TC increasing my WOT shift RPM?
