I've solved the "smaller-tires-but-no-tuner-available-so-the-govenor-kicks-in-at-1000ft-problem". Hypertech makes a speedo calibrator that IS compatible with the 2011 up computers - I am running one in mine right now. Works just like the handheld tuners but only has options to check and clear DTCs and correct for tire size. I haven't had the opportunity to run at the track with the new set up, but my speedo is accurate with 30 inch tires. (had to tell the computer 29 inches!?)
