galfer is on a distinguished road
Default Curious how White Lightning tunes are working out.

ive seen mostly good reports of white lightning engine and tranny tunes and only a couple of guys saying their tranny fried. but I haven't seen anything as of recently so I was hoping I could drum up some current feedback if bugs have been worked out.

thanks in advance

Never heard of them, but my dyno tuner really firmed up my shifts with custom tuning with Diablo. Don't know exactly what he did, other than consult with Johan at Diablo. Did the Sonnax line pressure booster then tweaked the tune for my new cam, when I got my truck back, he asked how I liked it, grinning from ear to ear. WOT shifts are (Very) firm, lets say. I know he's raised shift points as high as 7,000 rpms for hemi "Pull Trucks"

I'm going thru hell right now with my truck from what seems to be because of his tune. Looks like she'll be going in for a trans within the next week. I'm beyond pissed at this point, so now we'll see if my dealer tries to screw me because of intake and exhaust. I spoke to Sean(HemiFever) last night and he simply told me this is not the first time he's gotten this call before. I would leave it to Sean if I were you, he DOES do tranny tuning also. I have not heard complaints about him. Whereas I now need a tranny because of a poor choice in a tuner. Sean (full-time) Dave (part-time), I should've known better from the get go.

Don't think they should give you a problem with your current mods. If they do you can go to a different dealer. I read about one guy that went to 3 dealers before he found one that would do it under warranty. Do you know what the code is for? Seems like the OD clutch packs go out pretty frequently.
