That may be, but it certainly doesn't explain why all the Rams with stock TM setting are not breaking and ones with tranny tuning are dropping like flies.
Anyone I know of with a 4G Hemi who's attempted to max out the TCM tables in the CMR software has met with failure eventually.
The stock clutches are just not capable of the holding power required to keep them from slipping under increased power loads.
and the stock pump/valve body are not capable of high enough pressure to force those crap clutches enough to grab without slipping.
Slip = burnt frictions = transmission failure.
Ask the guy who's ripped open dozens of Dodge transmissions, Tuning them only works if you Build them up first!
