Rearend gear ration change

If I install different gears for the rearend, I am assuming that I need to reconfigure the computer in order to display the correct speed? Is this something that the Predator programmers can accomplish?

Thanks!

Pretty sure they can, and I think your one of the first people to mention this, but not sure. What ratio you going to? 373, 410, 513? lol

Actually, a 4.10 gear would work even better! Those tall 5th and 6th gears work wonders for higher ratio gears....

They would work well. But they're not available yet.

04 QuickSilver - !CAGS, Lingenfelter CAI, 05 Bumper with Stainless Works 04->05 cat back, Power Slot Rotors & Hawk pads.

Yes, and this is the exact reason I bought my predator tuner.
