Its possible that rev limiters in each gear could be hit at WOT. The shifts are based off of vehicle speed supplied by the VSS in the trans. Again, PCM tweaks would fix this.

Thanks for the support. I was looking into a custom air bag set-up but the Air Tech shop gave me an estimate of $3000 - $4000 for a custom 2 second system. I might look around for another shop to do the work but, if anything I will go with the lowering springs that are being prototyped in the Performance section.

Gameover - How your set up coming? What have you done so far to get it in?

And for the flashing of my PCM could I just get it flashed for the $99 to compensate for the wheel size or do I have to get a custom flash?

We don't include custom stuff in the standard PCM for 99.00 however we do custom changes at 10.00 a piece or as many as you want for the custom PCM price.

Update. My spring break is next week. I bought 195/75/R14 Uniroyal white walls for the rims. I'll be getting them mounted on the tire soon. Also my passenger side view mirror is loose. It appears the previous owner siliconed it back together.

How should I go about fixing this. I'm thinking I am going to take out the door panel so I can get to the whole assembly and do a nice job that I won't have to come back to later. I read this http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=74 about removing the panel. Do I really have to do all that to get to the screws for the mirror or can I bypass removing all the electricals and crap???

Once again any help would be appreciated and what'* up with those air bags gameover?
