When I ordered my Unleashed tunes I ask Torrie for stock shifting. On my 87 mpg and 91 performance tunes that's what I got on the files that arrived. If my truck is stock or tuned with these shifting at quarter throttle feels no different
Is this what your shifts are like?

Not sure I completely understand but I will take a stab. On Shawn's L5 tune, the adjustments I asked for was to calm the 2-3 shift harshness down and then we raised the 3-4, 4-5 and 5-6 shiftpoints a little at light throttle. We then also raised the 6-5, 5-4 and 4-3 downshifts a little as well. When I drive around at quarter throttle or less now, it shifts fast (not harsh) and feels stock. To me it is always in the right gear now at lower RPM.

Let me know if I didn't answer what you were asking.

That is exactly what I was looking for. I already emailed Shawn to send me a tune with your adjustments and will report back when I get it.

That pretty much describes the way mine shifts--I like it. In this town the speed limit is 35 on the main streets, before mine would constantly shift back and forth between 4th and 5th at that speed unless I locked out the OD's. Now it just stays in 4th, which I like. This shifts just about as ideal as possible for my driving.

Maybe I will get him to try your shift strategy on mine sound like what I'm looking for. Thanks.

I have been pretty happy with his shift strategy so far.

Before, if I took a turn or small curve at slow speed and then gave it some gas it would be super touchy and I would make the truck jerk forward.

Now it feels like stock when I do it.

There were time if I cruised at 40mph and coasting in 4th gear, if you gave it gas sometimes it feel like it would do a hard downshift. It would still be in 4th so I can only assume it was the torque converter.

That is now gone too. (It didnt happen all the time..but on a certain stretch of road I could usually replicate it)
