Timbo114 is on a distinguished road

Today I drove my newly awakened HEMI to work and WOW!
It's like driving an entirely different truck - so responsive in all aspects.

After work, I grabbed pen and paper and went out to re do what I did yesterday, with some organization.

I had to start fresh by installing my back up again today.
Why is this necessary to be able to view the individual engine and trans folders?
I still cannot see or change anything except tire size in the QA menu - what gives with that?

I'm new to this DSP - do I have a faulty unit? or am I misunderstanding something?

I did 87 perf tune, rev limit in D, speed limit, 13% throttle boost, and set my shift point rpms to closely match those of my Grand Cherokee
(which are cable adjustable, and were set up nicely by the local trans guy)
I prefer to stay in each gear a wee bit longer than the stock set up - hilly terrain here.

I wrote down all the stock settings, and my new settings as I set my part throttle upshift points a bit higher than stock. (I did this inside the Trans Perf tune - modify tune).
Should I have done these mods inside the stock trans tune instead?

I've been on the DS forum a good bit, trying to learn and better understand.
Help from real owner experience is invaluable to me right now.
So thanks to all who have chipped in for me here.

I'm open to any and all further knowledge.
