Can you borrow another EF Manual ECU and try it. EF Auto is no good to you with Manual. Sounds like ECU could be playing up.

Thanks for that. So sounds like its not the ECU. What about your speed sensor, could be faulty?

Limp home is for Auto only I believe, locks you into 3rd. Don't think that applies to Manual.

Speed sensor is stuffed, probably stripped gear, replace the gear and see how she goes.

you checked all the fuses? LHM shouldn't cause no action on the cluster...
