DSP is the ticket.
Looks like a good tune list to me. I like running the turbo brake on all my tunes, even the race. It really helps slow the truck at highway speed.

any tune producing over 90+ rwhp will start hurting your tranny ask me and almost everyone else on here how we know:rof the shift kit will help but if you RUN your race tune ...you'll cook that stock tranny :)

yeah so i could do a torque converter and the transgo jr shift kit and my tranny will still be safe even with efi live...as long as i dont do a tune that exceeds 100hp?

Hey man, ok listen. You will need a torque converter, as well as clutches, for your tranny to hold everything efi can throw at it. Not to mention while you were building it you might as well get Mike L.'s c3 oiler.

SuncoastConverters.com and it's either the Gmax 5 kit(If you have the 5 speed tranny) Or the Gmax 6 kit( for the 6 speed tranny with selectable shift on the fly)
