Thought there was a thread about this but guess not. What happens if you instasll the resistor and don't run the 91 octane performance mode on Superchips? Will I stop the world from turning?

its okay to run it with the 93 tune, because the 93 tune actually lowers line pressure for some strange reason, so the resistor will bump it back up, but any other tune will be too high of a pressure with the resisitor and might really f*ck up your transmission and start breaking things.

Would you please explain this resistor for the tranny to me a little better.
Thanks

well the resistor changes the signal to the TCM by a voltage drop across the circuit in the line pressure sensor, it will send a signal to the computer to raise line pressure, because it will think it is lower than it is suppose to be.

i am a self diagnosed trany idiot... but how could too much line pressure be a bad thing?

So what it sounds like is the resistor brings the line pressure back up to whereever it was with the other tunes. Kind of dumb for the "Performance" mode to drop pressure.

I put my resistor back in today and it makes a great difference. The only thing that I do not like is that my convertor stalls sooner with it. I think.

Ok , where and how is this installed. I am picking up sc this week from work. And from the dtw post sounds like this combination is a good thing.
