I thought the WOT MPH setting just hangs the transmission in that gear longer.

It doesnt seem like much but the difference from 0 to +3 could hang that shift 500-1000K right?

Is there a log list for the 05-07 transmission to datalog with? I dont know enough about transmissions to know what log so its helpful.

WOT MPH lets the car rev more or less in a certain gear while going WOT. You just have to experiment with what works best to make your car faster. Before I swapped my MTX in, I found that in the ATX +2-3mph rev'ed my car out to about 6800rpm (from about 6500rpm) 1st-2nd and provided me with the best time at the dragstrip but every car is different and you'll just have to experiment. Also you'll have to adjust each shift differently since the rpm spread is different from gear to gear. I always aimed for my car to rev out and shift into the torque curve/powerband of the next gear.

6500, to 6800 isnt much of a change is it? I figured it would be slightly more then that.

Im finding its not just for WOT, i need to do some more datalogs but i feel 4th kick in way earlier then it use to without it running WOT.

Ive just done a few runs with all 3 gear changes at -3 now ill try all three at default then later +3 and post the results.

Well i havnt done a log yet but today i set the WOT to +7 on all 3 and ill say this for sure it does more then just WOT. First is WAY better then it was. Second and third still seem to start in to low of an rpm. I didnt think the WOT settings went that high. I thought it only went to +3 for some reason
