On Sat, 19 Dec 1998 08:31:02 GMT, just as I was about to see how much duct tape you REALLY need to stop a gerbil from exploding, Riff <> distracted me by babbling thusly: >why would you change the computer? Indeed. This conversion is what I did when I found my 90-900T cab. The dealer had this black one, which was an auto, and another car next to it, which was a manual. For AUD2000 on top of what I was paying for the black car, they did a transplant operation. The one thing I did note was that the following morning was spent with a Tech2 plugged into the console connector. The 'check engine' light extinguished about 200km later on the interstate drive home. I can only presume that the ECU took a while to learn that it was now coupled to a manual transmission. I'm not sure. I don't have any info on the ECU so I don't know if it has any EEROM on board to load different engine maps in it or configurations or such, but it is the same ECU that the car left the factory with. -- Win95 Error: 079 Mouse not found - A mouse driver has not been installed.
