Just wondering if anyone who has trans work has ever ran just a ppe (no lift pump or anything) on level 5? Curious because i ran my truck on level 5 with stock trans and it slipped like hell at the top of 4th and in 5th i had to pretty much back it down to about 1/4-1/2 throttle from about 1000ft on. Truck ran a 14.20 at only about 90 mph and i think my 60 was a 1.89 or some where around there (stcok steering so i didnt push it to hard). Just wondering what this thing would run with a trans and with maybe a lift pump. thanks

Mine is on 5 at the moment....actually has been for a couple months now....runs good and strong.

Haven't dyno'd or ran the track yet....snow finally melted and the temps are raising so won't be long.

It's a matter of time. Don't feel bad.

Was it the tranny slipping or the cp3 running out of fuel and making it feel like it was the tranny slipping?

pretty sure it was tranny, slipped real bad and i got out of it a bit then it shifted 5th and i rolled in it some more and rpm just climbed with out it really pulling.If im cruising down the highway and roll on it, it will do the same. First time i actually limped it, and was locked in third and had a code.. Now it doesnt seem to actually limp it. it will just slip. Trans will be gettiing done soon so hopefullly i wont have to worry about it anymore.
