Question type: General

1 Answer


Automatic or standard transmission? If auto make sure the tranny is going into high gear and lockup at freeway speeds. Check for any computer codes. Make sure brakes release fully. You can purchase a reprogramming unit for your vehicle ie bully dog, or other type. And then get serious and dive into the engine mods.
