Re: Improving Acceleration
ask the guy if hes gonna adjust the bands, if not get him to do it as it will extend the life of the tranny and give better shifts (i think)
maybe get him to put in an adjustable s5 solenoid ( i dont know the price difference) and get him to adjust it up but not much. but only get him to do this if the mechanic knows what u mean or he knows what hes talking about.
if u know what i mean...
there isnt much else you can really do, except get him to put a synthetic additive in with the new oil, can decrease the oil temp a tiny bit and better shifting. i will prob go out and find one soon for the EB.
the power button is there mainly for towing and when you want the car to hold the revs longer, better shifting (thru increasing the line pressure within the tranny) and kickdown quicker/earlier.
it hasnt anything to do with overdrive as that is 4th gear.
hope this helps
