This is 100% OE

These are what we call Constants. These parameters do not vary


This is a list of Tables that JET has


This is in Normal Mode and these are the shift speed by MPH vs TPS


This is the Normal Mode WOT shift speeds by MPH


This is the Normal Mode WOT Shift RPM

If anything, worse... My friend's 03 Bonnie has a 2.84 or so gear. Yuk.... It is lethargic. But he has 35/35 chain ratio, so he can just swap differential, where mine has 37/33 and 3.29's, so I get the cursed 2.93's..... I would much rather have 3.69's....

I have shifted mine at 6000 rpm, is fine, look at the 3800 bottom end, you will see, very tough, cross bolted mains.

Don't try to shift over 6000 rpm, the high rpm spark kicks in around 5800-6000 depending on year, and kills timing to 0 degress murdering power quickly.

But without mods the car is about as fast as it will get with stock shift points, you might eek a smidgen out more with a tad more rpm, but the reality is it doesn't breathe well enough at higher rpms without the downpipe getting swapped out.
