So what happened with this? What did WL have to say about it? I'm looking for a custom tune this week after my LT's get put in, but don't need my trans going out.

Anything??

I would also be curious to know.I just received some tunes from white lightin. They seem to be top notch and he is amazing from the stand point of communication. But today hauling a trailer my trans temp got uo to the mid 150s... I know that does t seem crazy be it's the highest I have ever seem them including towing roughly 8k through stop and go traffic and it made me wary.

I've read 4th genners get excited because they don't get tranny up to operating temp which is 190. I tow my boat frequently and i see it get up to 165-170 sometimes..so no worry there.

Thanks man it stayed at a steady 156 for 15 minutes or so then back down to 140s but it just made me a little nervous. On the other side like I said the tunes are incredible and spot on it must just be new tune jitters. And it doesn't help it was about 2k lbs of pipe.

WhiteLightning is still around. We are still sending him tunes.
As long as your patient with his response times, you will be pleased with the tunes he provides you.
He can do it as mild you want to as wild you want and of course anything in between

Doesn't answer the question of what happened to the poor guys transmission and does he (WL) know what he did wrong to cause it. ????

You wanted a hot tune and Dave did just that a hot tune. I would say it was the trans was weak in both cases and the added power just took it out.

Heck I had a tune from Sean that trashed my trans the first time I tried to pass someone. "2p delete" yeah bad idea. That was the tune to blame... as confirmed by my trans builder.

I am also a CMR tuner and own the license that White Lighting and Keith tune off. They both are buying into it are are partners.

If anyone needs tuning help, let me know.

Jay

I purposely did not address that question because there is a lot of 'he said/she said'
The tranny is now fixed and both have moved on from one another.

I personally have been running the WL tune on my truck for over a year now without issue.

Keep in mind, Dave WILL NOT tune, just to tune!
However you want it, is how he will do it BUT lay out any factors that maybe of concern for the owner of the truck.
As mentioned above, he can go as mild to as wild but does explain everything. Almost in too much detail that you get bored listening to it....lol

great guy, knows his stuff and is very passionate at what he does
