Alright so i ordered my TEP trans with a 3.29 gear and i was wondering if the pcm had to be tuned in order for the 3.29 gear. I could swear it has to be but im still a 3800 NOOB! (I ADMIT IT!). So i need the knowledge from the older guys lol.

Two ways to go about it, correct it in the PCM, or there are different reluctor gears that can be swapped in. PCM is much easier.

This.

Back in the day people opted for the reluctor wheel since tuners were not that common. Now a days, just get it done VIA PCM. Get a tune too.

you just dropped 2k+ for a trans and whatelse but you dont have money for a tune??? wtf

not only that but just to get over there and meet up etc etc to change gears, you might as well make a day/afternoon out of it and let the man tune your car :bigthumb:

As i said though, it's the same price, either way i have to license your car to change the gears. Maybe you can find someone with a powertuner to change your gears :dunno:

$100 is the normal price of a slot in HPTuners.

Speaking of this topic, does anyone have an HPTuners file for a transmission with 3.29 gears? I am also getting a trans with 3.29 gears. Yes, I have access to HPTuners.
