the superchips along with a set of 4.56 gears in the rear helped my tranny out tremendously. with the tuner you can set the shift points anywhere you want. the gears really helped with it shifting at stupid times, and searching around for gears so much.

Like others said sc does it very well. I will also add that diablo does a good job with trans tuning as well.
