Difference 08 LT Vs 08 LT XFE

What makes a 2008 Cobalt LT XFE differ from the LT? Just the PCM firmware?

XFE came with LRR tires and a taller 5th gear. Also has a shift light that triggers at ~2200 RPM. Besides that, not much else I don't think.

PJ,
Is that shift light trigger, a combo of throttle possition & RPM?

BTW, ,, Happy BD

I doubt the TPS has anything to do with it. I don't know the mechanics of it but it probably just reads off the engine RPM

Thanks! 10 more years and I can finally start my mid-life crisis lol

Why wait? Do it now and get over it. More fun the earlier you start....more options...more time to rcover...takes less time to recover

Shift lights are like speed limits. Merely a suggestion :P
