Just get a tuner man and take those resistors out I saw you posting about in another thread.

I'm no mechanic and I'm not sure that I can prove that there is anything wrong with them but fooling the electrical system in the truck cant be good for it. I would think romping up the oil pressure to get a few hp without any other adjustments wouldn't be the best either. That being said I've run them for a few hours putting around and such with no problems but daily driving it scares me. But back to the original post about the governor if you get a tuner it will do a much better job than the resistors.

Do you think it would make my tranny shift as good as it does with the resistor?

I'm kinda confused as to why the resistor makes a difference in your tranny but yes the tuner should be even better. Custom tunes and even kit tunes will also tune the transmission.

Yeah I have no idea why either. But thats my favorite part. Not the power increase. when that time comes I'll probably get a dp or a edge. Any sort of power increase might do the same thing as the resistor. Guess well see

A resistor resists the flow of electricity. I don't know what the OP did with them, but it sounds like he's making the computer think an incoming signal from sensor is lower than it actually is, which in turn would make the computer do something to compensate. What the computer does to compensate is anyone's guess.

He is putting a resistor in the ICP sensor which sends back a lower number to the PCM. The PCM adjusts and increases the oil pressure applied to the injectors.
