No, BCM works either way.

Or do you mean the ECU?

hey guys, while my motor is out for the swap im going to service my auto, if i take the pan off and let all the oil run out, put the pan back on with new gasket and filter..will that be enough of a service? from memory i think there is about 6L of oil in the torque converter but i dont know how to flush that out? and how much will i need? my ef still has the dip stick and im not sure how much oil to add lol

Don't forget to do the rear welsh plug while you have access to it.

And there is no such thing as a cheap turbo kit. If there was such a thing that was reliable and driveable, we would all have one already.

Troyman has dropped at least 10k into his cheap turbo kit.

Cheers
