    How to wire in a lock up switch?

    I was curious on how hard this is to do.

    After I put my cam in, the lock up was intermittent. I just got it back from the tuner and it appears to be locking up, but it takes a few seconds to do it.

    I absolutely hate being on the highway and i can't cruise 75 at 1900 RPMS.

    So if I wanted to make a manual switch to do it, how? My tuner explained it locked up every time he commanded it on the dyno.

    All i found was common reasons why unlocking happens. Which might help. I actually didn't find a write up on how to do it.

    I went into my HPtuners and adjusted lockup settings till I was happy with them.
    have your tuner ride around with you on the street and adjust it if he can...you'll notice a difference pretty quick.
    I think i have mine set to lock around 35 mph

    If the SES miss fire code shows up, it will unlock or not lock at all. I checked my SES and thats what it was.

    LS1tech.com had a sticky that says you need to adjust the missfire tables, so I will get back with my tuner today hopefully.

    Ok yup, a higher stall can cause that... Desensitize it, don't just shut the missfire code off

    I was on the way to my tuner and lost 3rd and 4th gear today...

    IDK wtf is going on. I'm gonna limp it to him in 2nd gear or 4th if it feels like working.

    I'll take the highway instead of the interstate, it'll make it
