nice right up there! what exactly are they suppose to improve JT?

you ever drive in a car with a shift kit? shifts are quicker and much firmer. neck snapping shifts. besides the improvement in performance it also makes your trans last longer.

soft shifts are your trans slipping which creates heat that leads to transmission failure. performance shifts aren't something the general public likes to feel, so cars shift kinda lame from the factory. this fixes that.
isn't that what the diablo does with the firmer shift points?

diablo does firm up shifts but this is a different ball game, im talking about slammin gears like it feels in a manual car when you power shift.... I'm differently getting the blue top solenoids eventually. ill let you feel it when i do.

yes they work on the r/t. there is a guy selling them on lxforums for 300 for the 2 solenoids (you need 2 per car). he has them for sale quite often so I'm sure he could get them for me when I'm ready to do it. ill probably wait for my Christmas bonus and buy em over the winter and put em in in the spring before we hit the track again.

Anyone remember what fuse to pull to reset your TCM (for those without a Predator)? For some reason, I think it's #11.

Regarding the blue top solenoids, they are nice definitely firmer than stock. A buddy of mine runs them in his Jeep that I've driven a few times. I'm thinking about getting them.

Hey Jon, we should start a new thread. Make up a list of everyone that wants these. See if we can get a better price on a group buy.
