Re: V8 Auto -> Manual conversions and computer problems.

Hi guys, don't now if this helps.
Had auto EL, changed to manual box.
Disconnected Trans ecu completely, and shorted cable so it thought it was in park.Those connectionis actually on Engine ecu I think.
Car went alright but thermo fans ran at full speed and other little dramas.

Then installed Manual engine ecu. Worked perfectly, solved many problems.
I also had problem that couldn't get car to go into idle self test mode.
Some one fixed this problem by grounding a additional wire on the harness.

Will check car to see which wire was grounded.

Also, new ecu does not have rpm limiter, any ideas why.

XR8 EL
