WOT shift? what does what?

What does this setting do?

If i set 1-2 to -3mph whats that do over 1-2 +3mph

Why is it only WOT? does it have any effect on the tranny when you arnt in WOT?

Also what is it called when your not in WOT? closed loop?

Any link to settings and what does what would be great.

its the shift points. say it was set to 40mph in the tune. you do +3 it will shift at 43mph, -3 it will shift at 37mph. idk why they didn't do RPM instead of MPH, makes your sense to me.

i think WOT is open loop.

The thing is i dont go into WOT that much but i want the shift points to change a little.

So adjusting the WOT shift points doesnt do anything unless your running WOT?

yes, thats why its WOT shifting, it only effects it under WOT. you can still tune the car to shift at different points a believe but its not a end user feature you would need it written in the tune itself

Well i wondered because the shift pressure changes both O/D on and off i thought they were 2 different modes so i wondered if maybe its changing the shift curve or something as well.
