You can purchase PowerChip 93 software without raising the rev limiter? I did not know this.
I can definitely see problems arising from raising the rev limiter.
Anybody else experience problems with their PC software? Specifically, if you've raised the limiter. Thanks
Very pleased with mine. Both before and after SS headers. Great service from Wayne, Travis, Joel, etc.
I tried a higher rev limit, but also went back to stock. Power holds reasonably well to 7300, the PC/Dinan revised redline, but after that it falls off noticeably. Unless you do a lot of track work, there is no need to wind out past redline in a big torquey V8.
, every one with a 3.45 diff has raised the redline to 7300 to offset the lower speed in gears occassioned by the deeper gears. I don't think occassional runs to 7300 are going to do any damage to any otherwise healthy engine.
PC will set any redline you want, I don't think they charge extra for that feature. Just because you set it at higher than stock doesn't mean you HAVE to use it!!!!
As others noted, much improved cold performance and much better throttle response throughout the range. It will feel like you dialed up "sport" and then hitting the "sport" button is even more fun!
Not sure if there is a horsepower gain, maybe 3-4 (need dyno testing and about 50-100 miles run in so the computer can "learn" the new parameters to really measure it).
Don't buy it for the horsepower, buy it for the improved driveability. It really makes a difference in every day driving IMHO.
