Re: 66RFE Downshift Hesitation/Shudder

I have the same exact problem, non tuned on my 66rfe. I suspect that it’s one of three issues. 1. A cross leak caused by the valve body or transfer plate being warped, causing cross-leakage. 2. The solenoid pack is going out, but hasn’t caused any codes yet. 3. Some electronic gremlin we don’t know ...

And just to clear up a little misconception about myself... I'm not retired from the BLM, my truck is. I still have a day job.

I wonder if the 66 and 68 rfe valvebodys are the same. Can’t really fine custom 66 valve body’s but 68 and 545 ones are all over the place

Re: Sonnax Line Pressure Booster for 545rfe and 66rfe

Ya it seems like the softer metal of the valve body can cause some issues later on in the trans life. From what I could find, the only issues I may run into are the accumulator piston, some of the check balls wearing out, and maybe the pressure regulator valve wearing. It seems like these happen on ...

Sonnax Line Pressure Booster for 545rfe and 66rfe

Hey guys, so I was looking around for 66rfe upgrades and was coming up mostly empty until I ran across the Sonnax RFE-LB1 line pressure booster. It’s basically a fooler that tells the computer to give more line pressure. Apparently a shift kit does not really work on the RFE trans and I haven’t gott...

Power Wagon Down

Well, Dorothy 3 is down for the count. On the 14th I was on my way to work when a driver in a corolla went through a red light while I was going through the intersection. Tried to evade but was too little too late. T-Boned the corolla, hopping over the front end, spinning (almost flipped) and coming...

Re: Headers

I went with the JBA shorty ceramic headers due to having to smog the truck in CA. With a tune you can tell a difference. Im sure long tubes would be even better but I find my headers were worth the money with a tune. Did you have to modify the headers to fit? Any hammer work? Had to tap a tiny dent...

Re: Chip your car.

Definitely don't think you will get 60hp out of just a tune but you never know I guess. I have a custom tune for my truck and while it shaved almost 2 seconds off my 0-60, it definitely didnt add 60hp. Maybe along the lines of 25 or so. But be careful when modifying the computers on these trucks. Th...
