Get a DHP PCM. Im right around 140ish, but I dont want to give the county mountys anything to get excited over.

I could tell you if you had the 92-99 body style, as I have the drag coefficient and frontal area of that style. But not the 00+.

I personally don't think the 00+ is any more aerodynamically efficient than the earlier gen.

thats hard to say. the 00+ are more dart shaped with a big nose and a tapered tail and it almost looks like the back end sits about a inch or more above the front end, where as the 99-92 look more squat with a bubble for a top and the lines from the front are the same as the tail..sorta. I never studied the gen gap, just a reflection....

So do you just swap out the stock PCM as an exchange for this DHP PCM, replace a chip, or is there a programmer that you can buy to dump the governor?

You have to remove the actuall PCM and send it in for a core....there is no programmer for the H bodies.....Both the DHP and the Intense PCM will remove the stock limiter.....

Even if it'* more then 108, it'* still faster than one should drive on a public road. Take it to a track.
