The BIG BAD LIFT...

I have a question regarding the gts's lift. i not that technically advanced so if im asking a stupid question, please dont hate. my question is...the lift engages at 6k rpms, well is there a way to reprogram so that it would engage at 5k rpms? if it was possible, would it make the car go faster? any downsides? i know ive read something about this before but i cant remember it.

The phone rings...a sexy voice says "hey baby nobody's home, come on over". So I go over and there's nobody home.

It is possible. however, it makes the car go slower. There is a HUGE loss in power. Torque curves and what not. thumbsup

The apex-i power fc, with the power fc commander. It allows you to adjust the high cam engagement, but like Rocketman said, you loose too much peak power to make it a wise descision. The pfc also allows you to change your rev-limiter, that is much more beneficial for speed. thumbsup
