I would like to add that I was able to remove and reinstall the TCM with little effort, with simply a 10 mm x 3/8 drive socket, and a 3/8x8 inch 88 tooth ratchet (matco part number BFR88T) and a 8 mm nut driver, I did not have to loosen the vacuum reservoir. It took longer to clean the mud off of the TCM and connector than it did to remove. I did have to slightly bend the bracket lip (the part that slides in to the pocket) slightly outboard in order to reinstall it. There is just barely enough room for this process, not a millimeter to spare, I also had to remove the vacuum modulator/vgt controller and vacuum solenoid. (these are loosely mounted to the reservoir and easily removable by hand, no tools)

It is perhaps easier to remove the reservoir.
Did you (gde) have tc shudder with the eco, hot or turbo tune, in the first place?
You never specifically mentioned that the euro tc gets rid of existing shudder, however you did imply it.

I currently have massive amounts of shudder, with IMII. (you folks are obviously putting a ton more work into the crd than IM if only you were around then)
I have high interest in a aftermarket tc, but not necessarily one that has the stock stall speed/k-factor. We make more tq, we need a different tc. According to your numbers (turbo) a 1000-1200 rpm stall would not be unreasonable.
And i also have a inherent mistrust of mopar tc's, for obvious reasons.

Take it easy.
