That is not bad at all, I am usually in the high 2000's for when it shift from 1-2. I still believe that my 4.0 is a 5.7 hemi... which it is not.

You said your speedo was correct? Because if it is, I turn 2000 RPM's at 65! that is like a 500 rpm difference! What does in it lock up at? 4th with torque converter locked... like 1200 rpms?

speedo is about 2-3 mph off (comparing with my gps) i wanna measure the wheel or take the exact measurements off of nitto's website and program that into my programmer, right now its set at a 33" tire exact

it locks up around "60" and stays at 1500 ..but sometimes i have to let off the gas a bit so it locks up to 1500

I guess since you have corrected the speedo, the shift points have also been changed?

Compcrasher86 has found a away to make the 42re behave better too. by adjusting the cable that is attached to the throttle body. He had said that the lag between first and second gear is pretty much gone and it has really firmed up the shifts and has been alot better. I need to go do what he did too. Just need to find some time to do it!

Yeah from the factory they are set up to shift very comfortably so I went a tad tighter than what factory woulda been an it's awesome. Holds 1st a little bit in parking lots but I'm used to it already and the good shifts outweigh it.
