Or am I looking at this the wrong way? Removing $793 doesnt have a replacement number, it has a new software flash instead, software 7837907 for non HP cars.


Sorry for the dumb question and if I missed it in this thread, I apologize.
There's no option code for the 6MT since it's standard equipment. You don't add anything after removing 793

Still have to reflash the DME

[QUOTE=Al Soobie Guy;1067766788]Please elaborate " seems like an ews error, but no code" this is typically not a gut feeling type of issue. If it starts its not ews problem.

After i loaded the 6mt software the car would crank but not start when i loaded the original software back the car started fine

what is the 6mt software # ppl are using ?

Thanks

After finishing the swap, my car will not start. The side mirror tilted like I had the transmission in reverse. Thoughts?

It is wired correctly and the side mirror tilted. I remember leaving the SMG in reverse and didn't bother shifting it manually so that the gear switch will move to neutral. Ugh. I sold all my SMG parts already so I cannot undo it. Was told by my shop that it has to be coded now to get that part cleared....

MAKE SURE YOU GUYS HAVE YOUR SMG IN NEUTRAL PRIOR TO REMOVING YOUR SMG

Remove your SMG computer and code the car properly...

Well crap I figured it out. The negative ground on the side of the block was not connected. Turns out no (-) on the starter lol.

Car started now time to code.....

Ok gentlemen, I need your input. I completed the swap and wired the car w/out the Grs had a local Indy shop recode the car using Autologic. As expected the cruise control does not work. I have no lights on and the car drives fine itís just low on power, the gas pedal is very slow to react to my inputs. I could describe it as when at a stop light and I stab the throttle pedal it is very slow to rev also slow to get to speed. Perhaps down a quarter on power. A limp mode perhaps. Any suggestions or ideas as to why the car is down on power?

Thanks all.
