? on upgrades for 7.3

i am wanting to know a little about upgrades for my auto transmission on a 2000 f350...i have a edge evolution programmer on it and when it shifts it will almost send you through the windshield...harsh shifts! I was wanting to know if i added a torque converter and a trans command module if it would help with problem

Isn't the trans command supposed to firm up the shifts?

Which Edge tune are you running?

I had an Edge Evolution I and I usually ran it in towing tune. Nothing wrong with the tranny shifting with that tune. But it sounds like you're trying to run in the hottest Edge tune, which should have firm shifts.

Any Evo tune higher than towing produced black smoke for me. And black smoke means unburned diesel, which is a big no no. So I didn't use any of the Edge performance tunes. But same criticism of my current DP-Tuner tunes flashed into my Evo I. I usually run in 60-tow or 80-economy, and no problem with black smoke. But 100 or more horses results in black smoke so I don't use more than 80 economy. Therefore I don't know how it shifts in the go-fast tunes. With 60-tow or 80-economy it shifts just fine.

My Sierra Blanca (Spanish for White Mountain) in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it several years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream. Replaced the 2012 with a 2019 F-150 3.5L EcoBoost with max tow.

Don't use programers or esp a trans command..get custom tunes on a chip and without any additional pressure added. never use tunes or any elect device to control the VB pressures..get a BTS or JW VB.
