Yeah the rods and high pressure will not change that. But the Shift kit from TransGo will change that.The car shifts WAY better with the line pressure turned up to high. In the lower gears the car still struggled to shift quick enough before hitting limiter but it's good now.
When I have more time to mess with it. I just replaced my wideband o2 sensor because it was messed up and was preventing the wideband output reading to the FIC. Now that it's all working, I can take some FIC datalogs and work on making tune changes.When are you going to tweak it on the FIC?
