SOLUTION: Different 1st Gear Rev Limit - 3.2 JTS
THE QUESTION: Does anybody know how to trick the car into thinking it is in 2nd gear (or 3/4/5/6th) when it is in 1st gear???
As owners of MANUAL 3.2 JTS engines (159 3.2 etc) know - the rev limit on 1st gear is 6200 and the rev limit on all other gears is 7200.
Well that's just STUPID!
The engine is the engine - it doesn't matter what freakin gear it is in!!!
So the ONLY thing I can see that the computer needs to know it is in 1st gear is the hill-hold function (who the hell needs that anyway). Other than that it makes absolutely no difference to anything programmed into that car whether it is in 1st gear or any other gear.
SO my BIG little question.....
Does anybody know how to trick the car into thinking it is in 2nd gear (or 3/4/5/6th) when it is in 1st gear???
This will ELIMINATE the stupid 1st gear rev limit and make it like all the others. The HAS to be a sensor somewhere that it knows its in 1st...
Anyone know ????
