+1, if you do get a trans tuner, do not adjust the shift points. This seems to be the biggest killer of the 545. Line pressures I think would be fine for boosting as long as you didnt get crazy with them.

Tranny tuning? I was just going to do the 91 octane by tranny tuning you mean the shift points right?

Most usefull part I would say is you can take the governor out. Maybe adjust the speedo for tires and gearing, but it cant tune the tcm for new gears. Im running hypertec 91 oct tune w/93 oct. Fuel. Claims 26hp and 26ftlbs

So if I wanted a tranny tune would I be better off just getting a new gear ratio?

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Got a screw in my $500 Pirelli so I put the chrome wheels back on and kept my black lug nuts on. Doesn't look to bad

If you regear you will need to tune the tcm for a regear bro. Otherwise you will trigger limp mode and lock it in 2nd.
