Transmission Swap and Tuning Support
I specialize in tuning and swap tech support for the
Allison®1000 5 or 6 speed: Put
an Allison in a Dodge Cummins, behind a Ford 7.3 Diesel, Chevy V-8, or Fordcummins, and get it custom tuned via email. Avoid shifts that happen too early causing excessive smoke,
and late shifts that rob fuel economy.
Dodge® 68RFE 6-speed: New development is improving the 68RFE swap option.
Put one behind a 12 or 24 valve Cummins, and enjoy the best ratio spacing available for a 3/4 or 1 ton Dodge truck.
Ford® 5R110 and 4R100:
Tuning service available as I have time, using the PCS TCM-2000 transmission controller. I no longer offer OEM Ford transmission tuning services using SCT, too busy with other transmissions. I have tuned hundreds of these transmissions and studied thousands of data logs.
Dodge® 48RE: PCS stand alone tuning support on an "as I have time basis".
Read my Contact Page for the best way to contact me if you are interested, and see my
for the answers to the first common questions. Below are a few reasons why you should consider
my products and services.
- Years of experience: I
have been professionally involved with transmission tuning since
2008. I understand custom transmission control systems and how
they need to operate with engine conversions such as a 12 valve
Cummins in front of an Allison 1000. I am very experienced also
with diagnosing problems that can happen with aftermarket
transmission control systems. All of the experience I have has given me the knowledge to develop brand new
transmission swaps that were once thought impossible- and since
I really enjoy development I will continue to develop and test
new and better ways of controlling automatic transmissions.
- Quick response to your tuning or
swap tech needs: The hardest
time you will have getting a hold of me is before you pay me
money. Once you are on my to do list, I'll be easier to
get a hold of and ready to help. That can require me to
make new potential customers wait now and then, which is
practically unheard of these days where most companies will
gladly take your money and run whenever they get a chance.
I realize however, that it's pushing the self destruct button on a
business to ignore customers that have already paid for services
in order to sell more product. It's easy for businesses in
my market to get too busy to
give good tuning support or installation help. I do my
best to avoid the
"too busy" syndrome by not overselling my services, but that
isn't easy. Transmission tuning and swap support is difficult to manage
because I can't control when my work comes to me completely.
Putting in place a customer service policy that distinguishes
active and inactive customers helps to a great degree, and it's
just one of the things I make sure you know before you pay me
your hard earned money.
- Reasonable hourly rate:
I charge $50.00-$60.00/hour for remote tech or tuning services
(1 hour minimum), depending
on the system you are using. Start out small and see how I
can help you. My base
calibrations have the correct gear ratio and tire size for your
vehicle, and the shift points are set to your engine's power
band. Even with my base calibrations, some shift point adjustment
is almost always needed to reach the drivetrain's maximum
potential - due to differences in torque converter
efficiency, engine modifications and even driving style, but I can often get it pretty close. Since I charge by the hour, you
only pay for as much help as you need or want. I can even help you turn
your computer on if needed. If you have wireless internet
access, I can get on your computer remotely via a remote desktop
session and set up your controller software and show you how to
do data logs, all the tuning can be done remotely- right where
- No Nonsense, Flexible Availability: If
you need help at a different time than my normal business hours
I can set up appointments at other times, just ask. I
do reserve Sunday for a day off with no exceptions. I say
no exceptions because if I
decide to make exceptions then there will always be an
exception! I could promise you the moon and say you can
call anytime before I take your money, and then not answer or
ever call you back - or I could hire someone to answer the phone
and give you the wrong answers or say, "Oh sorry you will have
to talk to Jason about that, and he isn't available today" - but
I don't do things that way. I'm a no-nonsense kind of guy
that likes to make sure you understand what you are doing and I
don't make promises I can't keep.
