Default HemiFever or WhiteLightning, please read!

I know that there was a lot of questions between using WhiteLightning tuning or HemiFever tuning.

The saying was, HemiFever for the tune, WhiteLightning for the tranny.

Well, I tell you what. I have now used both. Not trying to bash WhiteLightning, but getting with him and him getting back to me took almost a month, and that was paying through Discount Auto, and my tranny tune didn't fix any of the problems I was having since installing my Converter.

I lot of guys with 2011 and 2012 trucks with the revised tranny that you can choose throught all 6 gears, have had problems with Converters since the newer program does not respond as well as the earlier programming.

My truck once at speed would not downshift properly since I had my converter put in, making a huge debate with the two tuners, and Edge performance about what the hell was wrong with the truck or the converter. WhiteLightning did a tune for me and it didn't really do anything. Once I talked to HemiFever, it took two attempts within a one day period, and now my tranny shifts like it did with the stock converter, but with the improvements with the higherstall.

I was torn for months on weather to keep or get rid of the Edge Converter, and even more likely to put the stock one back in since trying out WhiteLightnings tune. The problem I got with the converter swap is at 100% throttle the truck would not downshift, it would only unlock the converter and give me a couple more rpms and slowely pull in way too high a gear.

Not only did he figure out the problem first of all, he then tuned it correctly within two trys in a 24 hour period.

I can't tell you how disappointed and upset I was after spending all that money to do the converter, and my performance once already moving was just about ruined. And for months talking to everyone, and getting WhiteLightning to retune the tranny, seeing no difference was heartbreaking.

I made the mistake of going to him instead of getting with HemiFever, since I had heard that WhiteLightning was the man for the tranny. Only after HemiFever out of the blue asked how everything with the tune was going, I mentioned my problems, and about 4 hours later I had a tune in my email inbox.

HemiFever has told me that he actually does a lot with tranny tuning, but usually no one ever asked him to do anything. He already does an extensive tune on the tranny with his regular package according to WhiteLightning, who reviewed the tune I got from HemiFever.

ONCE AGAIN, not trying to bash Dave, but Sean does tuning primarily and Dave appoligized to me for taking a month to tune my truck, but he said he has soo many things going and the tuning is just a sideline for him.

So if you need the full package I highly recommend get with HemiFever, his customer service is next to none and he can do what you want and need.
