Standard (manual) Transmission Swap

Why US Turbos Won’t Take a Manual Transmission

The rub is that the US versions of the ECU expect to have a dialogue with the TCU and when the communications stop (as in the automatic transmission and/or the TCU are gone) it freaks out and throws a CEL.

I do believe there are ECU tuners that have dealt with it but I don’t know which ones, the last I heard was that IPD had not but perhaps that Rica had, that would make sense since Rica is based in Europe.
