Well, I havent seen the diagram, but wherever the 2 wires go into the switch, rather than connecting them to the switch, connect them to each other :)

Excuse my ignorance guys, but before I do this mod, I'd like to know does the shift kit completely by pass the power/econ switch. And if so does this swithch operate as normal when the shift kit is off?

The power/econ switch is not by passed at all ....it still works if the shift kit is on or off ... they do a totaly differnt job

the shift kit changes gears faster ... and the power /econ holds in gear longer

Good to see you've got it up and running squeak.

I still reckon you're a madman having it on 24/7. But driving in the wet will be fun :wink:
