So.... as you know I have been contemplating this for a while now & was ready to dive in & just do it......I researched threads & found a couple of DIY's......but they were for OBD I vehicles......the end results were good with no CEL's......
with further research, I found out that with the OBD II........ CEL's.......are a problem!
I contacted Turner Motorsports & they said they could reprogram the DME from Auto to Manual Trans mode...2 hours labor @ $95......
& the car would have to be there......5 hour drive from NJ to Amesbury, Massachusetts.......so I'm going to see if I could find someone local to do the reprogramming!
So, I will have to think about this a little more & I have time, because the fundage is coming from my Income tax return.....which will come in March or April........
So, if you want to encourage me to do this.......feel free to do so!
FINALLY! I'm Excited! cant wait! many pics please!
