    TC lock-up 04.5

    Thanks JW10, i'll try stock to see how she does, I thought it was mechanical but yeah, it is controlled electronically ... C'MON SMARTY!! DO IT!! At least with my BBI's, stock isnt so bad to drive... 😉 Apparently i never hit the submit button,.... Any way, Stock didnt change my problem. My issue is different then what you guys are talking about; 3rd to OD shift is fine, [this can be adjusted with UdcPro] its the 3rd ''LOCKED'' to OD shift at heavy throttle that bugs me, the TC never unlocks completely, leading to a LOCKED shift. I have a LED light wired in to the TC control so i can see when the TC is commanded to lock/un'lock; In this ^^^ situation the LED blinks off & then comes back on almost immediately. I was hoping the OD shift in this situation could be delayed 1~~sec to allow the TC to completely UN'lock....... ANY BODY have this problem???!!! Am i the ONLY one that has this issue??? 😞

    TC lock-up 04.5

    Thanks Rob, I talked with Dave about this and while wasnt promising anything he offered to put a valve body on his dyno and tweaking something, sounded like the pressure side of the TC engagement. Smaller hole so it engages slower but not to slow so the TC doesnt slip too much. He made it sound that the enlargeing the bleed-off side wouldnt work. ??? I was new to idea of the computer reprograming.... And reluctant to jump in without a 2nd or 3rd opinion. What year is your truck? There are lots of 3D TCs out there, How do they handle my problem? Just need a billet input shaft and good headrests?? 😆 ONE thing that would fix my problem would be a trans swap, a good 6-speed ''hand shaker'' would be sweet but i just had my trans rebuilt and its only $$$$

    TC lock-up 04.5

    I hope I was clear,... I was wondering if UdcPro could help with my locked shift. If not, i'll look into the computer reprogramming. I wanted to look into UdcPro 1st. Cheers!

    TC lock-up 04.5

    Hello everyone! I have a question about my 2004.5 Ram with the 48RE trans, I dont believe i asked this question before, if i have bare with me. Since i swapped in a low stall triple disc TC from Georend, I have what i call a 'locked shift', whenever i'm at heavy throttle and my trans locks the TC in 3rd and then it attempts to UN-lock BEFORE 4th gear engages. What i think is happening is the larger TC can't dump the oil psi fast enough so it [the TC] never releases before the trans grabs 4th. WHAM! feels like someone ran in my bumper. My 04.5 has the T/H on the shifter but this ONLY turns OD off/on. I am living with it but fear when someone else uses my truck and sees the TOUCH and just has to see what she can do..... I use the T/H button to control when OD shifts and then let off the throttle and all is fine. Dave Goerend contacted my trans builder [yes, because i complained] about getting my computer reprogrammed to help with this, [????] anyone hear of this before? Would this allow my trans to operate like a 05 when I'm told the TH setting changes how/when the TC locks. My thought is i want to know how this would work with UdcPro AND if maybe my prob could be corrected with-out this reprogramming. Thanks in advance for any input! Have a great day!

    Software Release 10-10-17

    Good day everyone, Is it me or are the #ers [6 small digital gauge] on the screen smaller then before? This ^^ update. I like the changes but especially the 'peak' #ers are really small....

    Software Release 10-10-17

    Increased RT parameters,... care to explain please? How will this effect my set-up? UdcPro tuning 2004.5 Ram

    Smarty touch gauges.

    I'm also waiting for the trans PID... So having a cheap Glo-Shift gauge is fine for now

    BBIs .5 for 04.5 - 07 Rams out NOW!

    John has tuned my ride, his answer is good. Thanks! PS, i responded to your PM Justin
  10. Hello! I swapped inj @ 220xxx miles because i was having hard starts. This fixed my problem.

    As with start-up haze, i had some before and after... I got rid of most with custom tuning. My friend John [AH64ID] tuned for me [uDC-Pro] and i was complaining about start-up haze, So when he was my area for training he stoppped in and made some 'live' adjustments. I still see some, but it is very slight. This is why i didnt want to go bigger then .05 BBI [60~hp more then stock]

    If the truck/engine runs well and dosnt have blow by, my guess would be tuning.

    Wish you well, God bless you.

    Touch Plain Black Background

    Thanks, I downloaded this and now can i select which back-ground i want from the menu or must the orginal back-ground be deleted from my sd card?

    OBD2 cord add on

    Locate the wires... & start snipping??? this has the potential to waste time and raise blood temp. I wouldnt know where to start :think:

    Wastegate adjustment

    Stock turbo yes, except at light load. I have a moded stock turbo now & the highest ratio i see now @ WOT [@400~rwhp] is 1.3-1 At light to med load its close to 1-1 :burnout: :thumbsup: edit; This ^^^ is with the waste gate ON.

    Wastegate adjustment

    I wouldnt turn the waste gate off, i was checking drive pressure [psi PRE-turbo, exh side] and was getting up to 50~psi, i turned the waste gate off and see 70 psi! With the stock/moded stock turbo= leave the waste gate on. The exhaust housing is small.
