I'm not really sure but I know your pain.

I'm in a simular situation atm.

In an auto the ECU controls when the gears shift and in a manual I don't think they do???

So maybe that's what the different wires are for.

Nope, shouldn't affect a thing as it should only really interact with the auto, and that'll be gone!

i think the EA to early ED had a seperate TCM module that changed gears etc etc but i am sure you need to resister trick the auto ecu to stop it sending info back and fourth trying to find revs etc etc but what do i know i haven't done this yet COME ON TAX MONEY :P
