Would the computer need to be re-programmed with 4.10s?

according to the 2 step theory it depends on what gears he has now. with 3.08's it will be a 3 step (3.27, 3.50, 3.73) and the computer cant adjust. if he has 3.27's now then he should be gtg (good to go).

you had no problems hitting the rev limiter at wot? did you do the j-mod? that worked for me, i put in a PA valvebody and it would shift fast enough not to hit the limiter.

My car has no problems with 3.73s, as I too have had the J-mod done. My only problem is that I get to about 90.6mph and I hit the speed limiter. I still have never hit the rev limiter after the gear swap.

You won't break anything so don't worry about that. You would be at about 2900 @ 80.

cool 4.10 it is. if i replace the oem module with a jet chip module will that take care of the problem with speed limiter?

Jet module? you have to be kidding me. please don't suggest that unless you have experience with them. Everyone I know has had nothing but problems from jet modules.

A buddy of mine sent his back 5 times before they gave him a refund. 2 of them wouldn't even run, 1 of them wouldn't shift, 1 of them was running pig rich , and I don't remember the problem on the last one. You should have talked to Lonnie.

unless you order a custom chip from them it wont do anything. your best bet is to send it back when you get it and go to blueovalchips.com and order a chip from lonnie.
