The Juice also monitors the transmission slippage when the torque converter clutch is engaged. The power level is decreased if any slippage is detected. This prevents damage from being caused to the transmission, and also prevents the power train from erroneously generating fault codes and entering “limp mode”.
The Juice also limits the amount of power increase during transmission shifts when the torque converter clutch is engaged and also when the torque converter clutch is being engaged. This allows the torque converter clutch to engage without slippage causing “limp mode”.
When the torque converter clutch is engaged, fifth gear on the Allison 1000 transmission will hold about 680 foot pounds of torque before slipping. Gears 2-4 with the torque converter clutch engaged have never slipped in Edge’s testing. (We have tested over 900 foot pounds of torque with no slippage). Without the sophisticated transmission monitoring that the Juice performs, the total power increase would need to be limited to the weakest conditions to prevent “limp mode”.
Unlike other products on the market, The Juice allows for moving power to be put to the ground under all conditions without transmission slippage or “limp mode”. When the torque converter clutch is engaged in fourth gear and under a heavy load, the Hot Juice should provide about 30-32 psi of boost, if the waste gate has been disabled on the turbo. Fifth gear will provide about 25-26 psi of boost when the torque converter clutch is engaged.
