Smartsheild needs to match the ECU to my knowledge but I think Ford can reprogram them for you.
I don't think you can use the E-Series resistor trick either on the AU's as the computer learns around it.

So your two options are having a 2nd hand manual ECU reprogramed to your smartsheild or a CAPA flash can change it to 'manual mode'.

Don't take my word for it about Ford being able to reprogram it. I do recall reading it on one of the forums, but I very well could be mistaken.

Perhaps someone else here can confirm?
