    Now in a straight line I use 3 instead of OD if running 1/4 mile.

    PS: I wondered if it would shift into OD under WOT, yep it does! Can you say some where near 140.

    I raised my line pressure 50% on my hypertech and leave it in OD when running 1/4's. Works just fine. I do however notice that at low speeds or lightly tapping the gas to crawl around the tranny tends to slip and jerk when the stock converter catches. Makes me think more and more about getting a shift kit and 3000 stall.

    Seems like I read somewhere that the 2002 Z/28 / SS models got the upgraded A4 which included several improvements to make the tranny much stronger and last longer under heavy abuse .

    i agree with everything else except the first about them being bullet proof, i went through 6 of the shitty 4l60's and never beat on the car, and that was in a time period of 6,000 miles with a mild HP car, my chevelle had about the same amount of HP as my camaro did and i never once replaced or rebuilt the TH350.. sorry i just do not agree with that statement...one thing goes wrong with an auto its pretty much game over for the whole thing.
    sounds like you just needed a reputable builder, 4l60's fine when built right

    I just had my car dyno tuned today by Hugger Orange SS (Rocky Mountain section). Shifts alot better without that shitty hypertech on there. Can't beat Hptuners in the hands of a skilled tuner thats for damn sure.
