e4od shift points HELP

in a 1990 e4od with a transfer case mounted VSS, can i change the shift points by changing to a different speedo gear?

basically im trying to trick the trans to shift at like 5500 rpm in drive or more without a aftermarket controller. if i use a way lower speedo gear, so for example i am going 55 and the computer thinks im going 40, will it shift that gear at 55 when it would normally shift at 40 because it acually thinks it is doing 40? or does it also base shift points off of the tach? but i have read nowhere the e4od uses any info from the tach except on the 7.3 idi diesels.

but, if it does run on the tach, can i trick it by putting some kind of resistor on the tach wire going to the trans so it thinks its running like say 1000 rpm less then its actual rpm?

and on a 1990 5.8 efi, what is all the sensors the e4od uses to operate correctly?
all i can think of is the VSS, TPS, AND MLPS. and does anyone know if the ecm uses the tach to control the trans?

if anyone can even understand my ramblings, any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

i am going to try tomarrow and swap out my current speedo gear (speedo matched for 4.56 gears and 35 inch tires) to my stock speedo gear and compare the rpms at which it shifts at full throttle to see if the speedo gear idea will work. i have a feeling it wont.

thanks guys

BUMP...

I too am curious if the transmission gets any readings off of a tach signal? My E4od shifts weird and the tach is REALLY off!!!

The E4OD looks at the tach for some of the shifting, usually WOT shifts. The tach signal is a frequency, not a voltage. Using a resistor might just make the PCM not see the signal at all. That will really mess with it.

Mark thanks, I found this... Your speaking of this resistor?

No, I'm not. I'm talking about screaminford's question about adding a resistor to the tach circuit.

Well on that diagram the wire that feeds the tach signal to the eec does have a resistor on it. What about adding a bigger one?
