Welcome. Get yourself a X2 or X3 SCT Tuner. As far as a 6" lift my son had Fabtec and the ride quality was very good.

that tuner will fix my govenor problem???

Im not sure if that one will for sure, as I dont know one from the other, but I know you can raise the speed limiter with some tuners, and get quite a bit of power to boot!

Yes it will and you will pick up some hp & Tq in the process. If you contact Troyer Performance you can get three custom tunes with the X3. The tuner info actually warns you that it will raise the speed limiter and that your tires might not be up to it.

is there any shops that can to it for you rather than spending the 400 bucks to buy it or did u guys jus suck it up and buy the tuners

Ty 03-25-2008 12:33 AM

A tuner is the best way to do it, and like I said earlier, you can gain quite a bit of power also.

I spent the $425.00 on the X3 and another 100.00 for custom dyno tuning. I picked up 44 RWHP and now get about 2 more mpgs with the tuning and AF1 intake. My mods will pay for itself in a year and I can enjoy a crisp clean no lag throttle response in the process. Future mods can be added and my tuner can be adjusted for them. I do not know of a way around the removal of the speed limiter without a tuner. There is a saying that goes "sometimes the cheap comes out expensive".
