Speaking of flooring it roughly, my mechanic revved my mint 95 sc3 pretty hard both in park and in drive for about 10 blocks to "relearn" the Sc. It turns out, the Sc was mimicking the previous owner's driving style which was very slow, tepid and pedestrian. My mechanic literally had to rev it high on purpose while in park, keeping it there for just a few seconds though and then in Drive, , he kept it in high revs for about 10 blocks straight after installing my ALT. Perfect time I guess since the ECU was reset for the install?
it was cool taking a testdrive with my mechanic and seeing this high-rev action done while sitting in the "other" front seat and not the usual driver's seat. IT felt faster and more impressive for some reason. btw, the car drives fine after he did that process but now I see why so many cars lead and it is almost solely predicated on how hard you drive a car!
