Like banshee said, watch the EGT's. Some of us have shifting issues with the resistor mod. I know i did, it made my tranny shift real sloppy and slipped alot during shifts, not good, especially when towing.

It depends on your shifting. If it still shifts tight then you could leave it in. It will effect it with all resistors. With mine, the lower number resistor i put in, the looser the shifts were. I had a 1k in for a very short time, and it took like almost 2 seconds between gears, not good.
