That pressure is a little low? Mine runs 240lbs or so HOT and I have seen this new valve body at 250! I'd call someone (TCI, BTE, etc) and ask about it before you run it. It may not be an issue but that pressure is a good bit below what I've seen in trannys I've worked on in the past.

Pressure on the low servo at 110/115???? At what RPM Barry? Hummm, NEVER seen one that low. Are you sure your gauge is correct? Or maybe I need to check my pressure transducer on the tranny??? I got a pressure gauge I can "T" into that line.

pressure checked at the servo cover on mine last year with coan 170 trans guy was not happy, new one is 245-250. I did some calling and sounds like 160-170 is the lowest trans shops like to see.

6200? Now you're up there with me! We both got a ways to go to catch up with Scott though. I think he told me that his is up around 7k.

5500 to 6200 your right it'll like that and be more consistent

I am a converter nut, change more converters in a season then most do it 10 years ](*,) . I just swapped another new one into mine this one has a sprag and is 6600 :-$

I got about 20 gallons of the case hygaurd or what ever they called it for free. It was a speacial order for a project and they wanted to get rid of it after the project shipped. I said don't through that away I got a use for it =;



As far as the presure I think I'm about 205 in low and high at 3000rpm's I wish it was a little more since I'm still at 3200 lbs.

Jake the main thing is that if it's not slipping then it's not an issue and any pressure over what is actually "needed" to make it function properly is wasted horsepower. So if you're not burning up or wearing out clutch packs I wouldn't worry about it.

Did a interesting test last night, sense switching to hyd fluid my delay is VERY slow, last year at one of my normal places delay 1150-1160 to be .015 on the tree. This year I've been lucky to run 1070 max to be .015 on the tree. This week I drained the conv/trans/cooler and put type f back in there. Went to track with 1090 in the box thinking it may be faster -.045 red, ended the day with 1145 in the box and was 012. Going with either mobile 1 or another good syn blend now

LAst year I killed the band leaving on about a 180 hp kit. This year I'm leaving on a 350 hp kit. I need to check the band adjustment this week but the floor board is in the way.

If you're talking about Beretta Barry, then you haven't been near the "Fuel Systems" section yet have you? ](*,)
