    The stock TCM programming is your nanny... It defuels on every shift.

    The Allison was beefed up for 2011... People are running 500 - 600hp no issues. If you go full potato when loaded to the nuts on a hot tune, you might have issues... But so far, I'm good, lol.

    I'd imagine for the '17s the upgraded the clutches and the torque converter.... Or at least the torque converter.

    Yep, 445hp/910ft-lbs. New Denso Injection pump etc. the L5P is supposed to be a hell of a beast. It'll be a nice upgrade in a couple years, once they're worked the kinks out.

    One downside? They made the DEF tank even BIGGER:

    Man, finding one "kit" from one manufacturer is challenging. I refuse to bolt on anything that says SINISTER on it :jester:

    Gm rep got there today...known issue. Crystallization of the DEF in the injector limiting flow. They're replacing it. Rep said GM is working on a long term solution as they've seen this a bit.

    Neat fab, but ?? I see no EGR kit, DPF delete, or anything I can use to flash a tune other than going with custom tuning.

    Man, I am not out to race, or spend all my nights fine tuning this bitch. I want the simple solutions. Direct drop in.

    I like all their piping, and I really like that simple air filter solution

    Interesting. When SCR came into our world, this was a common issue. In the class 6-8 truck world, SCR is known as "2010 EPA", and I spent the first 2 years do warranty and policy claims on Detroit/Daimler Urea tanks, pumps, dosers, and lines. It was horrible.
    By 2012, we had mostly resolved the issues, other than the wild card...the enf user and his DEF supply. Since then, I have only used what I think is quality, pre-packaged DEF. Up until yesterday, I used bulk for the first time, because I was in a hurry.
    Anyhow, old, contaminated, bulk, etc DEF was causing a lot of crytalization and contamination issues for us.
