All COBB F150 Limited TCM maps are built for a stock 10R80 with a stock converter and clutch packs.



Map Notes:

Simulated Stock: this is a stock transmission calibration.

COBB OEM+: this map is intended to be a sporty but refined improvement on the stock transmission behavior.

  • Shift Points: skip-shifting in ‘Normal’ drive mode has been maintained; moderately increased shift points for sportier acceleration; more responsive downshift schedules; more anticipatory coastdown (off-power) shift schedules.
  • Shift Firmness: moderately increased shift firmness during high-power, high-RPM shifts in ‘Normal’ and ‘Sport’ drive modes.
  • Upshift Backout: upshift inhibit (zero APP gear-holding) in ‘Sport’ mode following high-power acceleration and throttle backout has been disabled. Stock behavior would inhibit upshift until pedal position is re-applied above ~10%.
  • Torque Limits: increased torque limits for more aggressive launches and acceleration.

COBB Sport: this map is intended to be a performance-first improvement on the stock transmission behavior.

  • Shift Points: skip-shifting in ‘Normal’ mode has been eliminated, except for light throttle 1-3 shifts for comfort; increased shift points for livelier acceleration; more responsive downshift schedules; more anticipatory coastdown (off-power) shift schedules.
  • Shift Firmness: increased shift firmness during moderate to high-power shifts in ‘Normal’ and ‘Sport’ drive modes.
  • Upshift Backout: upshift inhibit (zero APP gear-holding) in ‘Sport’ mode following high-power acceleration and throttle backout has been disabled. Stock behavior would inhibit upshift until pedal position is re-applied above ~10%.
  • Torque Limits: increased torque limits for more aggressive launches and acceleration.


Upshift Schedule Graphs:

The factory ECU uses transmission Output Shaft Speed (OSS) for shift schedule tables, along with Accelerator Pedal Position (APP).  One graph will plot this data (APP vs. OSS), and the other will show APP vs. Vehicle Speed (which assumes stock tire size and diff. gearing).  Note - plots showing vehicle speed may not align with the shifting behavior of your truck due to differences in factory available final drive ratios.

Simulated Stock: Normal Drive Mode






COBB OEM+: Normal Drive Mode






COBB Sport: Normal Drive Mode






Closing Warnings and Precautions: 

  • Tuning is not a replacement for maintenance.  Make sure to follow recommended service procedure intervals.
