    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with programming shift points for an auto tranny. I have never had this request before and know shit about it. A customer wants a bracket car built for his son, but as he is very young it will be auto for now. We will be swapping a B series set up into his hatch if the trans issues can be tackled.

    If the shift points are incorrect, he can either swap the TCU or hold each gear manually.

    IE: Don't shift until the desired RPM, just like a manual. The only part that sucks is when you have to unnecessarily slow down in order for the transmission to shift down. This means, for me, that if I want to shift into first gear at 35 mph, I can't. I have to slow down to 30 mph to shift, because the TCU thinks it will blow my stock motor that wasn't made to shift as high.

    I don't know if the B16 ECU has an integral or external TCU. I think it has a seperate TCU.
