Default New switch

Anyone wanna guess what the new switch does? And I'm not talking about the one labeled TRACTION CONTROL. I'll even give you a hint - it has to do with the custom PCM programming.

Yes. Geez, that was too easy. Anyway, I just finished installing it and wanted to show it off. I'm not usually good at making things look decent, but I like the switch where it is.

Looks good, what pcm do you have and how does the performance shift button work? Raise shift points, firmer shifts etc?

A local guy to me programmed the PCM. Off the top of my head, the PCM has these settings - It is set up for 160 TStat fan turn on, 2 minute after run fans (after engine is shut off), perf shift mode added (when switch is on), shift points raised for perf shift mode, some changes to torque management to prevent boost cutoff and “false” KR, some changes to traction control, speed limiters removed, shift times and line pressures tweaked.

All in all, I can feel the difference. Now I need to make it to the track and see the difference.

Thanks for the installation comments too!

Hmmmm, a twin. I'm liking that idea. You know, I've been thinking about angel eyes or neons behind the grill. Point well taken. Thanks.
