Default newby question

OK, forgive the newby question. but, i have a 98 Ram sport 5.2 automatic. i don't really like the way it shifts. the only mods done is a mopar performance ECU. the truck has good power. but it has a lull when cold and after it warms up it still shifts softly. it has 126,000 miles and i would like a stiffer shift. i also need to know how to ID the trans.

Hi, not sure how to identify your tranny, but have you looked into a shift kit? These were common in past before the engine computers were easily modified. B&M comes to mind from my days as a Trans AM owner.
