Transmission Shift Points


New Member
I ought to know this!
Does the chip control any part of the shift points of the transmission or is it purely govenor controlled? I blew this thing up last year because I am a dummy and it did not ever shift out of 2nd. New trans, new mods, ran it through the gears today with the direct scan hooked up and it shifted from 1st to 2nd at 5750 and from 2nd to 3rd at 6375!!!! No flair, just shifted there. Any ideas how I can get this thing to shift around 5500. I did all the mods to run mid to high 11's with less than 20 lbs boost and little strain. Thanks
The governor spring has probably slung out. With it in, it should be shifting at WOT at around 5000, give a take a few 100 rpm.
