Regear - Recalibrate

I recently put a 4.56:1 ring and pinion in my rig. I noticed a substantial increase in acceleration but my shift points and my speedometer went completely wacko. The governer would kick in way too soon as well. Not only was this annoying but could be potentially unsafe. I picked up a VSSB from Superlift and the problem is solved[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]. The truck runs great now and the unit took all of about 10 minutes to install. The hardest part was disconnecting the battery cable[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

Re: Regear - Recalibrate

I really need one of those for my truck, just haven't gotten around to it yet. What did it cost you? where is it on the truck? I have a '95 so I'm sure it is in the same place.

Re: Regear - Recalibrate

I've seen them from $105.00 to $130.00. Just buy one![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]! It's a relatively inexpensive fix and it makes all the difference in the world. Your VSSB is located behind your glove box. You simply disconnect your negative battery terminal, take out the inner shell of your glove box(4 screws on mine), unplug the old one and plug in the new one. Takes about 10 minutes. Just tell them your tire size and gear ratio. Only problem is that they're not programmable so if you make a significant change in tire size again you'll have to buy a new one. Go check out http://www.superlift.com/speedo.htm. You can read about it there.

Re: Regear - Recalibrate

I just talked with a bunch of shops and they all said they had to order it from Superlift.. I called Superlift and they said they discontinued the VSSB.. Talked to one knowlegable guy and he said JET makes a SCU2000 that does basicaly the same thing but adjustable.. Still trying to find info on it.. Also the same guy told me the VSSB is really made by Howell but I can't find any info on this.. Can anyone fill in the blanks here.. I really need one of these for my S-10.. My auto tranny is shifting at 4000 instead of 5300RPM running 33's and stock 3.73 gears...

I got mine at 4wheelparts. As far as I know, the adjustable ones from Jet are for 96 and above otherwise I would have gotten one of those. This part is an AC/Delco part.

Re: Regear - Recalibrate

I've seen them either online or in a magazine for $105.00. I don't remember[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img]. Either way, $105.00 or $130.00, it's totally worth it as far as I'm concerned. If you absolutely can't find it another option would be to take it to a shop. There's a place called Steve's Speedometer on Sepulveda in Manhattan Beach. It'll cost you about $300 bucks though[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. Like I said, it's an AC/Delco part so you might check at a parts store if your tire size and gear ratio aren't too far from a stock configuration.
