Re: Adaptive shift ELGT ECU's
Adaptive shift is in the trans ecu, mounted off the steering column, or thereabouts. Adaptive shift actually means that you can programme either one of 5 shift modes, from max econ, to max perf, and three others between. What it does, is reads the TPS voltage, in relation to the VSS and changes shift points to suit.
What this means, is basically the longer that you drive it hard, or soft, as may be the computer predicts when you would want it to shift, or it will shift in one of the 5 modes that you may have programmed it to run in. I have alot more information on this, and an ELGT workshop manual as well as many Ford TSB's on them if you need to know more.
