Ive put my truck in fail safe 3 or 4 times now trying to pass some cars or racing a little honda (which I smoked by the way) and every time I feel like I blew my tranny...Does anyone know how to turn it off or make it less sensitive...I am in the process of buying a lift pump which I am told will help alot but still wont fix the problem...Can anyone help me?

it depends on what is going on, it might be cutting power because the trans is slipping.

Are you limping the Tranny or getting a Fuel Rail Pressure limp? What codes does it throw?

Umm not sure what code it throws all I know is 2 of the times it was the fail safe and the third time was deffinatly limp mode cause my buddy said it happened to his truck all the time with my programmer and the stalk tranny...I think I should tune down the Quad S2 a think its a little to much HP for the stalk tranny...what do you guys think?

Yeah if you're limping your tranny you're putting too much power through it. Turn it down, haha! The more you limp it, the easier it will limp... Sounds like a trans upgrade is in your future.

Mine was always going in to limp mode when my programmer was turned up but its fine if i leave it on level two. the stock allison can only withstand 90 more HP than stock then it goes into limp mode when it starts to slip. Limp mode acctually protects the tranny but the more it limps the easier it will limp next time.

Too bad that shift kit is for the allison 6 speed and not your transmission.
Damage has already been done, a shift kit isnt going to do anything, and, in your case, you will have to remove the transmisison in order to put the transgo shift kits in the allison 5 speed.
