    adjust the TV cable, when you push the button to adjust it, push it in just a little (away from throttle)

    edit: this will affect all gears though, AFAIK you can't change all just one shift without effecting other shifts. on a 4L60E you can adjust every shift point with a computer.

    Generally you want the tranny to shift later or higher in the RPM range under hard acceleration.

    The TV cable controls both down shifting and how late it shifts up.

    You need to make it tighter, try and give it 2 clicks and see what happens, sometimes it doesn't take much to get it right.

    tighter=higher rpm shift points
    looser=lower rpm shift points

    tighter is away from throttle
    looser is closer to throttle

    only go 1 click at a time to get it where you want it. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Adjusting the TV cable isn't the quite the "proper" way to adjust the shift points and you could screw it up doing it that way if you don't know what you are doing (just like with just about anything else).

    It is the govoner that controls WOT shift points. You need to add weight on the tabs or use softer springs in it. Go to the j/y and pull one to mess with so you can always go back to the stock one if you screw it up. All you need is a screw driver to pry back the hold down clamp from the cover on the back drivers side to get one out/in. I think TransGo makes a kit with different springs to mess with it.

    Triaged is totally right. Using the TV cable to adjust shift points can blow your tranny.
    If you want to learn what exactly it is you are screwing with. I suggust you read this. TV system101
