Yup, too many steps for your EEC to compensate for.

Your gonna be smacking the rev limiter. It's going to rev up quicker than the computer is used to, therefore it won't fill the cylinders in the tranny fast enough, so it will bounce off the limiter, and then shift.

Plus your top speed will be like 90, if not lower since you have 3.08s

You shouldn't need a chip with a 3.27 to 3.73 gear change. You will just need a speedo gear.

sure, just refer to your axle code in the door jamb, and there is a decoder in the tech articles.
