Before anything, shouldn't you solve the problems you have with the tranny ? Because as far as I understand, after the last TSB your tranny is even worse and now you have to get the car to the dealer. And yes, if the tranny doesn't behave as it should, the TC is not going to be normal either.

And I'm dropping my car off Monday night for them to keep it for a few days....
