Adaptive shift ELGT ECU's

Can anyone tell me how the ELGT adaptive shift ECU differs from the normal EL V8 ECU.I know it is set up for the 24lb/hr injectors but can anyone tell me if it raises the RPM cutout and 180km/hr speed cutout? What does the "adaptive shift" part mean?

2. If you throw it up in the air and it comes down - It's too heavy...

Squeezed is nice, stroked is good, blown is unbeliveable - but all 3 is heaven

Re: Adaptive shift ELGT ECU's

Rpm is usually 6250...Adaptive I thought means it changes to conditions.Rather than fixed.. Like when senser goes out of scale ..It will ignore it..etc...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: Adaptive shift ELGT ECU's

The adaptive shift is to do with the Auto trans.. It will adapt its shift points to how you have been driving rather than having 2 fixed shift points.

Re: Adaptive shift ELGT ECU's

The EL GT is not speed limited. If I can remember the Wheels road test it said it could pull around 230.

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.

Thanks 347stroker - puts it a little more into perspective. Might be sending you a few PM's if the ECU creates problems
