The motor i have now only goes up to 5000 rpms and I dont want to put a beastly motor in just to be restricted by my current computer settings. Is there a chip I can buy to fix this? Is there anyway to put a 635 racing chip into my computer now? I dont know what to do. Somebody please help me out.
When you do the swap you need to use the 635s computer and engine harness. Then just swap gauge faces, I don't know if you really should be doing a swap...
