What size potentiometer do I need to do the mod. Everything I search is for a 6.0 or 6.4

You just need a resistor. All work is under the dash next to the driver kick panel.

A resistor is a set rpm. A potentiometer would allow him.to change that rpm exponentially

Like jcain said I want to use a potentiometer so I can adjust the rpm just trying to find the resistance range needed

No problem. Got another question though. All radio shack has is a 100k pot and I believe the pcm has limits to the rpms so this should work right?

that's the same one that I did. I think ill stick this thread so we can use it for a reference.

If you Google your year and "body builders guide" you can download the PDF that is relevant for your year. Same deal with 08-10s
