Finally got around to getting the Hypertec prom chip installed! She just wasn't runnin right, down shifting all the time, shifting to much really. Well when the old chip was removed it was discovered that one of the prongs was bent and probably not even making contact! With the new chip in she runs like new!! And I thought I was just going to get more power! The overall drivability is amazing!
Just had to share!
Thanks
Kenton
