    I would like to firm up the shifts on my 2006 F 150. I was wondering if there is a programmer or tuner for only the tran? I dont want and need a engine tuner just the tranny. But that seems to be all I can find.

    I'm not aware of anyone selling a programmer that just tunes the transmission. I run a Gryphon on my 07 and am really pleased with the overall improvements. Both engine and transmission.

    Check them out. http://www.powerhungryperformance.com/

    Bill does custom tuning and can certainly make up tunes to just improve your trans shifts.

    programmer for f150

    i have a 2005 f150 5.4l and i have a edge programmer it has 3 different settings i use the towing setting and its great. yes it effects both the engine and trans but you can custom set the settings so in your case you could leave the engine alone and just firm up the shifts. its great for plowing and we all know that a little harder shift instead of slipping ofthe trans will be much better for the trans in the long run hope this helps

    Your best bet for the trans is call Eric at Innovative Diesel. He custom tunes SCT's for what every you want. He can write you tunes for just the trans. Great guy and even better tuning.

    If you are going to put a tuner on your truck go with a SCT Xcal 3. I had one for my my F150 and loved it and there are a number of guys that tune them.

    Innovative Diesel
    Power Hungry Performance
    Troyer Performance (Probably the best F150 tuner out there but has a long wating period for tunes)
    VMP Tuning
