.Wow. The rpms do drop in last gear. I most definitely would consider this mod. Is there any concern with offroading and the converter lockup?
I do not think so, none of the other options (TH400 and 4L80) have lockup control, I would assume the 6L would automatically go in and out of lockup at the same tail shaft speed (35 MPH in high range) when in low range, it is actually quite seamless the only reason I know is because of the monitor software on my laptop. so rock crawling for example would all be done in non lockup mode.Wow.

I would assume so for the most part, but the Park is mechanical the rest of the driver involvment is a multi position switch, BUT you have to have an interface to the TCM like the TCM-2650. dragging all the signals out without the TCM would be a big problem, IF you pull all control off of the TCM (power) it will be in third gear only, the mechanical connection to park (the actual control of the parking pawl being the only driver inputI've been reading up on the 6l. Can it be shifted to all gears including park electronically?
Do I read this correctly that if you have a mechanical shifter you can select all gears mechanically with a software change. Meaning you could have full control with the hardware you have installed.Zero Gravity informs me that manual shifting and paddle shifting is the same thing and it requires the TCM to have a Corvette tune so I would need to be able to read write the TCM tune to implement this, I did not get any answer to the question of manual lockup control.
So the read/write issue is moving back up in importance.
