Woohoo! My INTENSE PCM arrived today. Got ready, got a book, installed the PCM and sat down for some fun times doing the Security Learn proceedure that worked perfectly. 30 Mins later I was on the road.
I know my car VERY well and exactly how it acts and shifts in certain situations, etc. Went out for the drive, and EVERYTHING that annoyed me about the slow shifts, early engagement of a gear, low RPM shifting, etc was gone
Took the car up to the now 6300rpm shift point and was smiling ear to ear, I love it! It is now shifting about 900 RPM higher in first gear very much using the powerband of the cam.
Car shifts out of first at 59 mph now and I went up to 98 and didn't hit the second shift yet. Getting on the freeway I had a skipshift to first I wasn't used to and man was that nice, I could always merge quite well with the power I had but it was exceptional today. Basically this PCM removed all the terrible restrictions that were on this perfectly tuned engine and wow is it happy!
No more inefficient catalyst or missfire codes, and overall the car is working how it should. I can very much feel the added timing as well, just have not scanned it yet.
Watch out Rogue, I'm on my way!!!
