I dont know if it is proven fact or not but I have been told that it is better for the tranny w/o it. With it there is some slipping and builds up heat and heat kills a tranny.
So with a firmer shift there is less slipping and less heat.
Anybody else ever hear of this?

I've heard that about firmer shifts, like you get out of a shift kit, but that doesn't have anything to do with TQM. The way I understand it is that the TQM takes power away from the engine when the tranny shifts, which means that even when you are running full throttle down the strip, you aren't shifting at full throttle, which is easier on the tranny.

Yah that sounds right, BD..you're thinking about shift firmness which is related more to the line pressure in the tranny, it doesnt have anything to do with the engine. but what you are saying is right
