Default Intense PCM

I know this upgrade does not make extra HP alone, but my understanding is that it helps with acceleration since it raises the shift points. What are your impressions of this mod? Should I expect issues from dealers in doing the CASE learn and avoiding them flashing the PCM?

Thanks!

The raised shifts points will help make the most of mods such as rockers or a cam. In which case your motor will make more horsepower higher up in the rpm range then it made from the factory. But aside from that a pcm will tweak many other things such as fueling and fan points not to mention remove hidden abuse modes.

Shift points and things like that can be added or not added. When you order, Intense will ask what you have, are looking to do and what you want.

I left my shifts where they were.
