Hi,

I've recently swapped an ED over from a Manual to a Auto and want to know if I'll need an Auto ECU to run the transmission or should the Manual ECU also be capable of this?

If a member has a suitable one they'd like to sell let me know (I live in Victoria). I think one with a catch code of 3DBC would be what I want.

Also if anyone wants to buy the Manual ECU let me know.

Cheers,
Anthony

EDIT: Fixed the typo (I'm looking for a ECU that will change gears in an Auto.)

the manuel version is 3DAC the XR6 version is 2DAD but fitting a J3 chip would be an easier and quicker way to do it.. link to J3 chips >> viewtopic.php?f=21&t=68577

Thanks the J3 chips look interesting but I'm not wanting to spend much on the car because as soon as I clean it up a bit I'll be selling it (bought it just to get the manual gearbox).

So I will need to do something to the ECU or swap it over? Or should it be working and I've got a problem with something else?
