Question Does firm shift damage the automatic transmission?

Hi!

I've a 2005 ford mustang! Recently I've installed a custom tune by Tuning Super Store with a firm shift..

I like the firm shift, but I've a question.. Does firm shift damage the automatic transmission?

Thanks!!

nope. it actually helps the trnny last longer. slow shifts are good for the ride comfort, but it allows for slipping inside, and that leads to wear. the firm shifts keep wear to a minimum and extend the life of the tranny
