    You can't do a D4-D at $10 an hour. Those swaps cost almost as much as the truck does.

    Anyway, this is a bummer. I've never heard of an ECU that you couldn't reflash to simply raise the rev limit or remove the speed governor.

    Well, you can get info straight from the horses mouth if you want :D. I work at jet, and personally would recommend the ECU upgrade kit vs. the V-force if power is more of a want for you. with your mods, you can get 10HP and 12 TQ to the wheels increased from the ECU kit. the V-force would be more like 4hp and 4tq. the V-force does have a display though, that is able to put up 14 different readings. The ECU kit retails for $399.00, but i'd recommend buying it through our distributors like 4 wheel parts, or amazon.com or even summit racing, shop around for the best price. they are able to sell it at a wholesale discount.

    ROFL! good one, all dyno info is :censored:

    JK! yea I have a list of what the ecu upgrade added on many different vehicles on our in house chassis dyno. don't have a pic of the dynos sheets themselves anymore though. The 3.4 V6's see 14-16HP to the wheels depending on the bolt on mods the vehicles has. Also remember the ECU upgrade requires 89 mid-grade octane or better, forgot to mention that, as well the V-force is ok to run lower 87 octane gas.

    oh wow, people still don't know the truth about those reg cab V6's? I recently learn as well that 95-97 did have an option to have a V6 in the reg cab. only those years IIRC, over on TTORA someone recently posted a link to an ebay sale of a 96 or 97 i believe with like 40K or less original miles on a reg cab v6. completely stock, older man owned it i guess, super clean. Rare as hell but they are out there.

    people do swap the 4.0's in the 1st gens, not cheap or easy but has been done. one shop owner i talked to said even stock vs. stock the power increase is easy to feel in a 1st gen. Personally, if i had the money and time a 4.0L in my 4x2 with some bolt ons and a tune would be ideal. good gas mileage, and power when i need it :D.

    Would the ECU upgrade allow for bumping up the fuel cut a bit, playing with the governor etc.?

    unfortunately no, What we do is change the timing, and injector pulse based off the mods you have on the car/truck in order to get more power.

    are you saying full after market ECU, or like after market piggy back like an HKS FCD?

    ahh i see what you mean. I think the least expensive is the AEM EMS but haven't looked into them in years. I was under the impression they had a plug and play harness for some models, but you might be right about the 4.0's not having one.

    I used a FCD on my 91 mr2 turbo, kicked the red line up to 8K from 7.5k and it worked like a charm. Also allowed me to increase my boost as well :D.

    I had to laugh a bit at this one. However, it is about the most accurate description of the 2TR sound that I have ever heard. At lower rpm it does growl like a Subie boxer 4, and at higher rpm it has the sharp, raspy sound similar to the old 2 cycle Detroit V8. Very good description indeed. I too, like the sound from the 2TR. I owned a Subie one time, loved it, great car. I drove a truck for 20 years, and I'm old enough to remember when the old screamin' Jimmy's were very popular engines. They had a good sound, but were the noisiest thing on the road. With a straight pipe, and a Jake brake, nothing sounded any better...
