If you get the programer then you can set all the different settings according to what you are wanting to do with your CV,however,it would be cheaper to go get a P71 computer from your local junk yard. The P71(cop car) has higher rpm shift points and there are some differences in the rev limiter,also the top speed limiter is set at a higher rate.Depending on your type of programer ,you can do all of that and adjust your timing curve,air / fuel ratio,shift points and possibly eliminate the top speed limiter altogether. Now, about those HEMI's, if you got 2 catalytic converters then you can get real dual exhaust,but if you don't ,then you can get the Cat-Back system which is better that the stock single pipes,but,not quite as good as the duals all the way out the back.All this allows the engine to breath easier and perform better,plus it sounds muuuch better. Happy Hunting,keep us posted!!!
