5 k mod question

i did the 5 k mod and it worked. i then read that the 4.7 k made the overboost ses light go away but it didnt. i was wondering though if i could put a switch on the resistor to turn it off and on because i have a stick it makes it real rough and jerky at low rpm with all that power. or would the wires mess with the amount of electricity being stopped by the resistor?

k thanks. a switch is easy to put on. u need to cut the resitor in half with each half poking out of the two hole it does in. then you have to run a wire from each of the two peices of resistor poking out of the plug. thenconnect to two wires in your truck with a switch. the switch simply breaks the conection

All you need it a SPST switch. One wire from the ICP to the switch , one from the switch back to the ICP. It will not matter which of the two wires you place the resistor in. When the switch is off the the circuit is broken. If you use a DPDT switch you could use two different resistors Like a 10k on one pole and a 5k on the other if you want a diagram on that let me know.
