    Removing weight from the governor

    Does anyone have governor weight removal data for a given RPM that they would care to share? I'm looking to get about another 400-600 RPM out of my tranny without having to manually shift the car. I have a column shifter and it's not exactly easy to get into each gear under WOT conditions. TIA

    HVAC question

    What might cause the air from my AC to only come out the windshield and floor vents? I could not find any vacuum lines disconnected. Any other suggestions?

    Would you put an external tranny cooler like a B&M stacked plate design inline with the OE tranny cooler, or run it alone? If you did run it inline with the OE unit, would you run the fluid through the OE cooler first, then into the external, or the other way around?

Can someone please explain in layman's terms what this mod does, and why is it a benefit? I also noticed that...
