In previous threads it was always stated that it will actually help preserve your transmission by making firmer, quicker shifts thus reducing the heat produced by each shift, which means, generally speaking it should last longer.Originally posted by afi292+Jan 5 2004, 06:24 PM-->QUOTE (afi292 @ Jan 5 2004, 06:24 PM)<!--QuoteBegin-Smola97GLDoes anyone have an approximation of what my new 0-60 would be onmy car???@Jan 5 2004, 05:17 PM

Ask a few programmers about the the rev limiter and speed limiter. I know my superchips chip got rid of my speed limiter and it shifts higer, too. But that's a gen 3 duratec, not a gen 4 FFV, so who knows.Originally posted by Taurussetypes@Jan 16 2004, 08:32 PM
The next mod to my car i want to do is a chip. I have the vulcan with ffv. Do yall think the ffv will get in the way of chipping it? Also, will the chip raise the rev limiter and take off the top speed limiter? What injectors could i use after I got the chip? What kind/size? Thanks a mill.
The major reason for losing the rev limiter isn't to be able to go over it. It is to stop the fuel cut programmed into the factory computer. I need the limiter removed on my car because when I run nitrous the revs get to 5500 really fast and if you don't let off fast enough or the transmission lags then the computer cuts fuel and you go lean which can cause damage.Originally posted by RAMdrd@Jan 17 2004, 12:02 PM
Faster gear changes also mean that the clutch packs slip less and therefore wear less.
I might want to firm up the shifts a little, but not so much that it would get annoying. Is this adjustable by a tech?
Is there any permanent damage to the engine or drive train if the Rev limiter kicks in? I might want to keep the rev limiter, lose or raise the speed limiter, and get higher WOT shift points.
What is redline for a factory '02 DurTech 24V?
Most tuners can do everything that a chip can do.Originally posted by silvapain@Jan 17 2004, 04:33 PM
A tuner won't be able to do some of the things that a programmer can put on a chip for you, though. like adjust for larger injectors, diable EGR, and all the things that I happen to need. That's why I"m getting a chip, anyway.
