Hi Mate,

3 x8 k# Q7 H1 N# h; v* j% c2 kI'm about to start converting my cf2 166 from a knackered ZF auto to 6spd manual. Can you provide any detail on how you dealt with the engine management side of things, as I understand it the engine ECU recieves signals from the gearbox ecu and if it doesn't, it causes the car to drop into limp mode. Any detail you have would be greatly received. + _, }: a/ }9 a; z! q. j
