It depends and the scanner used and the formula to display the PID. I've seen plenty of them read 99.61% at WOT while others read 100%.

I wouldn't make anything of it.

Cheers,

Took it out for some testing. I pullied down to the 3.2". Even with 94 Octane it was giving 1.0 kr just before it shifted.
It shifted 1-2 at 6000 rpm and 2-3 at 5900 in D as indicated on the scan gauge. The dash gauge indicates about 150 rpm less than the scan gauge.
The Throttle percent would not go above 99%. Is there a way to adjust so I get 100%? Does it make any difference?

Rogue replied:

Nope 99% is considered WOT and what most people see. The light KR just before the shift is normal. It is torque mgmt protecting the trans.
So my next question is what is normal KR?
With the 3.1" I get about 2-3 kr just before the shift.
With the 2.9" I get about 5-6 kr just before the shift.

All testing is done without water injection.

Ok.. I'll check the % tonight. I think that pulling back the floor mat I got 100%...not sure though.

On the KR at shift.. very normal. that is the PCM dumping boost.

Thanks Bill.
I do have an extra layer of carpet down there but didn't think that it would be restricting....hmmm.
Well if 1-3 is normal, then I should be able to run with the 3.1"
I am producing 10.psi of boost with the 3.2" but every little bit helps.
