Dang you must have done a number on it LOL. We've bumped the line pressure up in mine to a decent degree, at least to that of what a factory Demon calibration has in it so that may be helping mine.

Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to use D&B Automotive in Memphis! If you haven’t checked out Davids videos on FB and Youtube, you should!

David, thanks for the help deciding on your 8HP90SS Trans with billet drum &hub upgrades. It should be on its way to you from So.Cal. by the end of next week if all goes well. 😎 I’m excited to get her back on the track and see how deep into the 9’s I can go before getting kicked out of the stupid NHRA Tracks here in Cali! 😡

Nice lavender purple tape behind the rears 😄. You know they make PPF for that sort of thing

I was speaking with a dodge tech today, option 1 and 2 might not be options at all. They are not allowed to open the valve bodies and pull the clutches out their housings. They usually send out the transmissions for servicing.

I’ve actually decided to go in a different direction. I’m not disclosing it right now, but at a later date if appropriate. 😗

Here my list of codes. Mostly clutch issues I think. Pretty sure it was bad tuning but 🤷🏼‍♂️

Hey guys and Linda, 🙂 so I ended up going with Jon Sipple of Sipple Speed and Performance in North Carolina. He built me one of his MAX EFFORT units with a Billet E-Drum and a Demon Torque Converter and all the good stuff including his proprietary mods from 30+ years of building trans and working on cars.

I’m tuned by Tim Barth and that’s who he recommended and I’m really happy he did. Jon has an amazing reputation and is a super nice guy. As swamped as he is, he’s found time to go above and beyond what’s expected to get me taken care of. Jon’s Wife, as well as Tim and especially Rhonda Barth have been beyond helpful as well. He’s just so dang busy but thats what happens when you’re the best.
