It does not communicate with factory body control modules, engine control modules, modern dashboards, or vehicle communication networks. It was very easy to navigate and any questions I had were immediately answered. The videos below will walk you through the required steps to get started with our Windows-based tuning software. Hughes Performance also carries a controller. As with the previous model I reviewed, when you convert from an older vehicle, consider adding a transmission controller, crankshaft spacer, special cross-member, driveshaft changes and other modifications which are not included with this package.
Let's start with the manual valvebody which doesn't require the use of a controller. There are several options available. Valid on orders shipped in the contiguous United States. Comes with complete instructions in a comprehensive manual. Only issue I see is that this black box effectively maxes out transmission line pressure so that each gear change applies full hydraulic pressure regardless of load on the engine.
There are a couple different companies that can hook you up with the kit to make his happen. Electronically Controlled Transmission Swapping to the electronically controlled 4L60E A41 transmission meant a few extra wires, and a transmission controller was part of the swap. The only thing preventing this controller from making the top of our list is the absence of a data-logging feature. It really is a little black box that plugs into the 18 pin connector and is powered by switched 12V. This model provides a firmer shift and remains fully automatic. Like our intuitive tuning software, our installation manuals are straightforward, well illustrated, and easy to follow.
When we upgraded it was because, in addition to our regular weekend warrior trips to Willow Springs, we like driving the car on long trips. This stem has a selectable table via a toggle switch. The t-case adapter is not included in this kit, and if you are converting from an older vehicle, consider adding a transmission controller, crankshaft spacer, special cross-member, driveshaft changes and other modifications which are not included with this package. We offer an easy upgrade program at a nominal price for existing Quick 1 customers who wish to upgrade to the revolutionary Quick 4 controller. One of the best decisions to make for a classic musclecar is to enhance your driving with upgrades to brakes and suspension, as well as an overdrive transmission. Also using this setup, your limited to preprogrammed shift firmness, timing and lock-up function.
The buttons can be separate grounding switches, or a that may be adaptable to your horn set-up. Simple to use and easy to install, these programmers can be considered inexpensive insurance to monitor and diagnose transmission problems. Overall, the system worked as advertised right out of the box. This is all possible because of the sensors present in these newer transmissions. If your Cummins has a sensor on it already this works the best. This is less of a disclaimer as it is an acknowledgement of the physical capabilities of the transmission.
Calibration B is an available feature, enabling a towing or racing calibration with the push of a switch, it can even be wired in to your existing overdrive cancel button if your vehicle is so equipped. Just choose the part number for your application and you will receive everything you need to get it done right the first time. When they changed to a new transmission controller, they looked no further than. We routed the new harness through a hole we had previously cut in the firewall, and ran it along the transmission and plugged in our two connections to the transmission: the main plug and the speedometer sender. The yellow tachometer signal consists of a pair of wires split out of the harness to make the connection convenient. It appears the hardest part of the entire installation would be routing the wires and mounting the box in a professional manner. Connect the clearly marked leads to the engine control harness, and you're ready to cruise! The manual shift lever also indicates the maximum gear the controller ought to select - for example, if the shift lever is in second, the transmission controller will limit the transmission to first and second gear only.
Please Note: When doing conversions, there can be parts needed that are not listed here. In some cases, a new lead may need to be added to an existing install which would be as simple as inserting an included wire into the connector shell. Programmable shift points, shift firmness, and torque converter lock-up. While the controller may appear complex, we spent very little time tuning and navigating this particular unit. For the intake, we needed a 950hp Holley to feed the Rat, and for the exhaust side a pair of Hedman 2-inch headers snaked around the stock manual steering box.
We loaded the software, but we found it easier to calibrate using the handheld interface. For example, the maximum engine rpm input is not a rev limiter. With the ability to fine tune the calibrations for pressures, shift speeds and lockup speeds, we can make the automatic transmission shift perfectly. The transmission controller is not designed to function in a factory environment. Allow up to 8 weeks for rebate processing. Though the process may seem confusing at first, once you know what each step represents, understanding the effects of these inputs will make you a better tuner.
If you are contemplating the use of a previously owned transmission, remember that even the best controller cannot compensate for a weak or damaged transmission. Not all of these controllers will work with these transmissions. But if all you are looking for is a basic system, making the connections to make the trans work is pretty simple. The standard wiring harnesses are complete and require as few as three connections to produce an operating transmission. The code starts in one of the two user-selectable auto-modes sequential shift or skip-shift. If you are installing this engine into a 1967-2002 Ford, or a Chevy, the best tps option for you is a universal cable operated tps. The kit also includes a Reman Pump with a new rotor vane slide, a corvette servo, a 0.
The 4L60E is a symbol of strength and durability, with broad application, is a great unit for Jeeps, comes in a modular design and is being constantly upgraded. The Chevrolet Performance Parts Automatic Transmission Controller is a fully programmable transmission control system. This indicated to us that our trans was a little weak and could benefit from a shift improver kit. This old Plymouth has gone through a lot of changes the past couple of years, and it still sees over 5,000 miles each year, with some trips taking up to four hours to reach our destination. The Torc system is simpler, as it does not require the rpm trigger or the constant 12-volt source.
