Default performance shifting (option)

Is it possible to put this on my car and what would I need. Is it another computer that controls it or is it as simple as just putting a switch in the dash and wire it to the factory computer "because I seen stuff easy as that before" maby the plug is in there just tucked away

Thanks

On the 2000+ at least I know you have to use a tuner to modify the PCM file, DHP is the only one that does it IIRC and with a 93 you might not be able to change anything on your PCM but someone else might know more about that

93 I'm unsure of as well. In some cases though it was a matter of adding the switch and wiring.

Honestly you probably wouldn't notice a difference as the factory settings are a difference of about 100rpm.

If your car was equipped with the 4T65 which is fully electronically controlled, then line pressures and shift speeds etc would be different as well.
