    I've heard a tune would help with the surging.

    Don't have experience though. I'm still rocking a stocker.

    My truck loves the 245mm Circle D. 0 problems for over 50k hard miles
    I doubt you had a defective unit. Maybe a defective foot lol

    My new edge shipped yesterday, guess we will find out if it was my foot or the unit that was defective soon enough

    I would send it back to Chris and tell him the problems you were having with it.
    If he finds something wrong with it,maybe you will get a credit.
    Eitherway,he probably would like to look at it.
    Both companies make great converters.And both are great people to deal with.

    After I pulled it I gave it to a buddy of mine. He said he didn't care about the surging. Sure enough after he installed it his truck started doing the same thing my truck had been doing. That is why I think it was a defective unit. If he ever decides to pull it I will probably send it back to circle d to see what exactly was wrong with it.

    I think i can answer your question? I had an 08 q/c 4x4 Heads,cam,lts...ect ect first started with a circle d suppose to be 3k it was loose as could be and surged just like your experiencing. Truck performed very well under power but daily driving was not good...not normal. Switched to an edge 2800 and verter was much tighter drove a ton better with no surging still flashing to 2800ish from a dig. My opinion is the truck converter is truck dependent plus year dependent. One will run like crap in one truck and good in another or different year, i think its all on torque converter feed back that gives you the surging. When i went to the edge i ordered a stock size 280 i think...sorry been out of the dodge scene for a bit, but stock stall size with a 2800 stall speed worked great for me drove great around town and still stalled right up to 2800ish with my foot on the floor. I am by no means bashing circle d...i just bought a new gmc truck and im gonna call chris for a converter. In the GM world with there amazing tuning options Circle d is pretty much God for transmission parts. In the chrysler/dodge world i would go edge. I hope this helps

    I now drive a 04 GMC VHO for a daily and still went with Edge over Circle D. My trans builder for the GMC said he wouldn't install the trans if I used a Circle D, he got that bad of a taste in his mouth by them. Have heard some things that really turned my nose up to Circle D, yes they are popular but the things I heard shouldn't have been...

    Both make there mistakes but Edge has the best reputation that precedes Circle D's advertisement and following, especially for the 545RFE.

    Are situations are a little bit different the 4L 4speed series transmission lots of ppl are making performance parts for them now because they have been out for awhile. My 6l90 six speed circle D is leading the race and getting those transmissions to hold 1000+hp. Pretty impressive both converter companies have plus and minuses.
