Well, I just placed an order on the Eco-Tuning Mod.

No converter slip, not a rubber band effect.
Reduced fuel consumption.
Lower oil temperature.
Better heat dissipation due to lower oil temperature.
Slower aging oil.
Reduced wear on the gearbox.
Reduced wear on the lock-up clutch.
As fewer repairs.
More driving fun through the direct transmission of power.
More Details about the Eco-Tuning Mod. As it is not publish. On the TCU there are 5 levels of pressure adjustments. You can increase the pressure if it's needed (i.e. if the trans is slipping). Also, there are different levels for when you want the TQC to lock up. The levels (speeds) are 33/35/36 and 37mph. To change these settings you simply move a "jumper/bridge" inside the TCU, this is very easy and don't require any tools (obviously you need to remove/open your TCU). You don't need to do anything to activate the mod. But if you like to deactivate the mod you move the gear selector from Drive to SportDrive and back to Drive, this has to be done at speeds lower that where the TQC locks up.
