    Make sure your battery is fully charged before programming ! You will have the key in the on position for a while. Did you get directions ?

    It will only let you go so far with the rev limiter. Which is a good thing with the stock valve springs ! ( turn it up ) The shift firmness will be noticable at 100% and each shift point or gear change is seperate... 1-2 (2-3 / 3-4 )/ + or - mph... So you can rev higher before shifting. It doesn't go by RPM... Another thing, you have to leave it in OD for the shift points to work... If you have it in drive, it will bounce the rev limiter...

    Oh Ya, This is all at WOT...
    Install the power programming too !!! If you ever get a pro tune, you can always still use it fot gear changes, tire sizes, ect... Good Luck !!!

    I assumed that you have an automatic transmission. OD / overdrive.
    If you have a manual 6 speed, then there is no shift programing.

    WOT is wide open throttle, like as if you are going down a drag strip !!!

    You will leave it in drive ( which is OD ), not 1,2,3,... I would drive it and see where each gear shifts at, then decide if you want it to rev higher for each shift. Make sure you have a long straight stretch with no cops around !!! When you hit 3'rd, that will be enough then let off !
