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?

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.

If you look at your speedo when in 4lo you will see it is WAY up there. I am not sure why this is, but it is typical of these set-ups; I think I have mine set for 200. I have an HP Tuner, but you would need to buy credits. Since the guy that did your tune already bought/used credits on yours it's probably best to have him do the adjustments.

No speedo in my jeep. But i'm sure I will end up sending it to him. Trust his work.

bump stops for the front, air shocks for the rear. changing the rear 60 to 35 spline. Got some new limiter straps that need to be put on the rear still (thanks innerairlock!) I think that's it for now. fuel cell over the winter. Oh, and tube doors. Those are hopefully in the works right now.

What's up with yours?
