How not to skip 3rd gear
I have an InTune with the Hemifever tune. The truck stays in 4th gear longer instead of going to overdrive so quick. That part is great,however it still skips 3rd gear just like when it was stock. Can the tuner be used to make it stop skipping 3rd? It will hit third in tow/haul mode,but I don't want to drive it like that all the time. Also what does the part throttle upshift setting on the intune do?

When I had the Spartan + cam installed, my dyno tuner retuned my truck and modified the transmission shifting, holy crap, at wot it shifts really hard and no bog between gears, so I guess it's hitting 3rd. I used to have to use tow/haul mode to get it to shift like that, now it's "Holy Crap!" I asked him what he did, he just grinned. Normal driving, however is very smooth.

Easier with a 3G cause when going full WOT and hit third you can just manualy shift from D to 2nd and it will lock 3rd gear all the way to red line.

I asked Sean/Hemifever about this a few months back, he was not aware of the "Secret" 3rd gear and said he would look into it. Without me assuming anything I doubt it's possible but am hopeful. That would definitely make me take the plunge into a tuner and custom Hemifever tune.
