47rh superior shift kit - what pressure are you seeing?

What pressure are you guys seeing? Do you go turns past the gauge tool provided? Iím viewing pressure through accumulator port.

I don’t know about the superior kit; but with the Transgo kit, i have to go about 7-8 turns in to get 170psi. Their kit only recommends 3-4.

Have you hooked up a pressure gauge to see what your superior kit does?

Yes Iím getting weird readings. The highest Iíve seen in the accumulator port is 130psi in 3rd with converter locked WOT. Itís about 85 at idle in drive. But overdrive converter locked is 120psi at WOT. This wot throttle readings are around 2500rpm.
