Are you sure? Dan Clarke from dans diesel told me I could, but he's on vacation out of the country now so can't get ahold of him

I'll try it once it's in. If it doesn't work can I drive it to the dealer to do a quick learn? I plan on having then do a quick learn with the tech 2 either way just don't want to mess something up

From what I understand is resetting taps and doing a quick learn are two different things. Quick learn with tech2 does it precisely rather than just reseting and hoping it learns how it's suppose to. But I could be totally wrong

Clearing TAPs is setting them at zero. You cleared the memory of what the TCM has learned and adapted to date and all your shift schedules are now in limbo; diverged. TAP's are target applied pressures which the TCM is trying to adapt to. Fast learn with the tech 2 is a procedure where the TCM fills and exhausts clutch modules and times them till it gets close to what it is after. After this procedure is complete; stop and go driving will give the TCM the rest of what it needs. It will learn much faster with the fast learn kick in the pants.
Having said that; your Allison will never be as good as it can be without doing this. Some adapts refuse to learn unless this is done.

You could call and ask Mike if he could. I did say ask as that'd be up to him
