Dropped the jeep back at Toms Saturday to have the shift kit installed. Will test her out at Twisted this weekend. Giving Troy a call at Howell when I get back to see if there is a speed limiter/sensor in the computer that can be adjusted.

The computer has a speed limiter and a rev limiter that can both be adjusted. What is yours doing/not-doing that you want different?

Rev limiter is fine (I thought that was the issue at first but was corrected), when in 4lo if you hit the gas hard it just kills the motor like its getting no gas. Almost immediatly in some gears , others it takes a second but still does it. Was told either a speed sensor on tranny or speed limiter in computer by some . Jeep is at Toms right now, he is pretty sure its the limiter in the computer not a sensor.

I'm sure it will, Tom's fixing the shift issue now and i'm sure Troy will handle the speed limiter issue in a quick visit. Just a matter of finding a day to take it to him. It sure does run great!!!

On my Jims harness. I have a VSS ( don't know if you do) and that reads back into the ECU..

Now I have a switch to ground wire from my harness that I turn on when in 4Low so that it changes shift points. (supposivly) And adjust the VSS control.

But I am wondering if you have a VSS and in 4 low at high speeds instead of seeing 50 MPH. Maybe you are seeing 150....

I could be pulling something completely out of my ass. But seeing how I have a somewhat similar setup.. It might give you a few ideas.

Tom put a switch in for the 4lo. Didn't seem to make any difference. He's double checking that while he has it. Not sure about the VSS...but will do some checking. Shit it can't make it to 15 before shutting down.... No big deal if I have to run it out to Troy again. She likes to go for trailer rides.
