OK, I am told that this is a fairly rare issue, and that replacing the valve body assy should correct it. Apparently, you likely have a defective solenoid, with inconsistent flow at cooler...

Personally, I don't think shift kits and "line boosters" are worth the money. They will probably give you a temporary benefit, but the PCM will "learn" and adjust the shift adaptives, so in the end...

Yes, exactly.... what is the transmission doing (or not doing)? Do you have any fault codes?

Wow... don't think I've seen a converter (turbine hub) spline stripped before. That is unusual. But glad you got it figured out!

Yes, a console-shift truck also has ERS function built into it. Your problem, I think, is that the ERS switch communication on your 2009 truck is completely different from that on a 2012 truck.

Yeah, sounds like that would explain the P0958 and no ERS switch function. I'm guessing if the connector is different, then nothing is connected to the wire in your current shift lever. You'll have...

Yes, that makes sense, because we would have eliminated the OD solenoid control wire from the harness in 2011 / 2012. So you would need to add that circuit back in. That would connect to pin 7 on...

A 2011+ VB assy (or solenoid module) will NOT work correctly in a 2010 or older truck.

Wait... I thought you took parts from a 2012 and put them in the 2009 truck. So it's the opposite?

Shift speeds increase as engine torque (throttle) increase. So at wide open throttle, yes, shift speeds around 6000 RPM are probably normal (I don't have the exact figure).

Yes, the P0760 is due to using the 2012 VB. You will want to change to an older-style VB, and that should take care of the P0760 fault.

~2500 RPM is what's called the "stall speed" of your converter. That's the point at which the engine torque matches the resistance from the converter (with the trans input "stalled", i.e....
