No fault codes or knocking. Car started without a hiccup.

As for the power, there's plenty of it. When WOT, the shifting seems to take longer than previous but I'll have to compare with and without the harness. I believe it's because of the extra power that the transmission needs the extra time. This could also be why you see the Hartge video shifting at 6k. I'll have to try and do a few more WOT runs and play with different shift points. I don't have a g meter so it will all be based on feeling.

That said, can anyone recommend a g meter or whatever those timing things are called.
DO you have the Sport Transmission or Regular?

The extra time required worries me...I have the regular transmission and it shifts amazingly fast, would hate to lose that.
