    Question 2-3 shift lag

    I'm looking for advise on what to change in LS1edit to get rid of or at least reduce lag between 2-3 shift at WOT. I logged 3 runs and 2-3 shifts are at 5900ish and 73mph, right where they are set. But I have a 2-3sec lag till it actually engages. It doesn't hit the rev limiter. I've read alot on here but still haven't found the answer. So any help would be appreciated

    have you done any tranny tuning yet on it? I'd raise the shift pressure, remove torque management, and cut the desired shift time in half. Some people zero that table but I just reduced mine by 50%.
    desired shift time is trans calibration>shift firmness>desired shift time. Just multiply that table by 50%.

    If you haven't removed torque management you'll see more of a difference by doing that. There are 2 parts to torque management.....a tranny part and a spark part.

    The desired shift time table does more than it eludes to. If the times are over a half second (0.500) then there is some adaptive learning that is allowed. I don't like this, because I want the tranny to repeatedly shift where I tune it to. I set that table to 0.250 across the board typically, or at *least* in the high throttle areas.

    Mostly though, Orion hit it on the head. Tq. management is REALLY noticeable in the 2-3 shift.

    For torque reduction in trans cal area, do I just zero it out?

    Very nice, I believe I've seen it.

    And under A4 Shift Firmness, Whats abuse mode?
