Unfortunately, no. 9-speed only. They've supposedly improved the shift quality through software updates, but who knows.

No progress on this thing in a while. Just driving it and researching 2.4 parts for the engine in the garage. I did have this happen the other day:

BWS will work fine with stock motor and depending on boost levels, could work without a custom tune.

Shifter update. The base of all the OEM/Mopar shifters is mild steel, with no coating at all. As expected, it gathers a bit of surface rust over time and looks like ass. Not normally a big deal for a ...

So I swapped the stock lifters back onto the head and it made no difference in sound. I'm pretty sure it's valve related at this point. Probably an out of spec valve guide.
