I don't remember exactly, but its enough that its worth having it recalibrated. Not difficult at all if you get an OBDlink and AlfaOBD. No idea what the dealership would charge.

Tire circumference is Pi times diameter.
Stock tires are approximately 33" in diameter and you are running 37's
So your actual speed will be 37/33 what is reading on the speedometer.
If you don't make a correction, when your speedometer reads 60mph you will actually be going 60x37/33 = 67.3mph

But you need to get your computer set for 37" tires to correct your shifting points...

Mine is about 7 MPH off, you really notice it on the down shift, or the 2 to 3 shift under minimal load. I will be getting a programmer soon. Just have not decided which one.

I just got the new and improved AEV Procal Snap. So far it’s working great.
