My Alison transmission seems like it should shift better.

It will hang in the higher RPM range before shifts into the next gear longer than I want.
I just feel it should shift faster and smoother.

OK 2 questions;

1) Should I bring it to a Alison trany shop or this is normal?
2) Is there any after market kits that are good for this?

Please know that the TCM and ECM computers are actually operating the transmission and engine by maintaining many critical parameters within their proper operational range. You're just along for the ride.

I've noticed that if you are going uphill or hitting headwinds that it will affect the shifting. In fact it has become quite predicable how the shifting will respond according the conditions I'm in. Here in NW arizona I've had more that my share of wind and hills
