I've spent too much money and need some advice!!!

Ok,I orderd my fabfours bumpers and killed my account!!! I am so broke right now but I have to get some kind of programmer asap!I got pulled for speeding today because my speedo is off because of these 37' tires.I just want a programmer that will calibrate my speedo and unleash a little power.I can't spend $500 right now on a really good one....At the moment I'm in the $300 range.What do you guys recomend for my budget and where can I order it from?I have been searching but there are so many out there my eye's hurt! I'm not looking for a chip,but the actual programmer.Thanks in advance!!

Hey man, I know this is sac religious, you can take it to the stealership and have the recalibration done for like $90 and save you cash for the SCT X3. Just a thought.

U dont need a speed recal. just use common sense and drive slower. You know whether or not you are speeding when ur driving without even looking at the speedo

Why don't you get a cheap handheld or older GPS. I know my handheld gives speed, and it even has a little mount to put it in the car. I mainly use it on the boat. Just an idea

it adjusted my spedo but don't know abiout the shift points and that was around two years ago or so but i do think that it would either go that high (4.56) or tire size that I had.... can't recall... but it did work..
