    I have a 99.5 that I was able to replace the stock trans with a BTS trans. At the same time I finally put in a DP tuner. All has worked good, and still does. But it seems to be sluggish going into reverse from either drive or park. When stopping to go into reverse, I come to complete stop, shift into reverse and wait about 3-5 seconds until it goes into gear. Fluid is full, not burnt in color or smell. 6.0 cooler keeps it nice and cool, about 60* over outside temp. No noises or anything that would give me an idea. No leaks.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I'd reload the stock tune and see if it gets any better. If not I think it's time to talk to the trans builder.
