I have the TE VB upgrade and went out for a test drive tonight. The car shifts a lot faster now and there is absolutely no lag. However, going from 3rd to 4th (I think), the car shifts really hard, trac blinks (I can hear my tires squeak) and I can feel a harsh push while it’s shifting with also a noticeable noise. Is it suppose to be like this?

VB upgrade is harsh and clunky sometimes.....

dude, you are the most paranoid person i've ever met...the TRAC was flashing because you chirped the tires and lost traction! thats turbo kicking in for ya! :p

Is 3-4 MUCH more different than other gears? If it's a lot firmer you should take it back and have them adjust that shit lol.

no i didnt get it tuned yet. i might be doing that myself on the street with my laptop, so it depends.......

when you say adjust, exactly what can they adjust? and yes, it shifts pretty different but it only happens when i am driving hard. under regular driving, all gears shifts pretty smooth.
