off topic, but what does a bad motor mount look like? are there any pictures of a bad one.

I thought when i get my tires rotated ide peek in at the mounts but i dont know what im looking at.

No tuner can read your mind, but the adaptive strategy logic in the computer can. let it do work, and i'm sure you'll like tom's tune as much as i do.

My Shift PSI Settings:
1-2: +10
2-3: +15
3-4 +15

EDIT: even if you choose milder shift settings, you'll still get the fairly nifty gains from the added octane. Snappier throttle, smoother idle, and a torque boost. What's not to love?
You have a different car then i do but you sir are the first ive seen so far to post anything about your tune.

Maybe its a speed tweak no one else wants to reveal?

I have mine at:
1-2 +15%
2-3 +15%
3-4 +15%

I have a duratec so my trannyis probably different as well.

Maybe if you adjusted your pressure level your sensitive tranny might have a more pleasureable experience...

You have to learn how to ease him/her/it in a little.

Sorry. Couldn't help myself.

zinsavage123 still having these issues tom is in the process of retune files I thought maybe my tranny had issues but it shifts normal when its returned to stock ecu but when I load the tune its a strong jerk feeling leaving 1st to 2nd to 3rd even daily driving. so it shouldnt be my tranny right? if its when the tune is off? maybe I have a sensitive tranny?

zinsavage123 cool eases my mind so some of you guys with the tune got the jerk type feeling gear to gear sometimes even daily driving?
08-09-2010 06:09 PM
Usagi With the tune, yes. Now I'm not tom, but this is my experience.

Relax and enjoy it, and if you'd feel better, check the transmission fluid every few hundred miles to look for signs of stress (darkening/burning smell).
