nothing much really... i just want to ensure the stock ecu won't leave me stranded by disabling the trans, i also do not want to destroy the trans by running it in an unknown state. It appears to be in a failsafe mode where it's shifting very firm, but i bet that's designed to save the trans. The little gear icon is lit next to the D indicator on the cluster. But it shifts fine. i drive this car when i can now to the store for food and parts and such, tuning and logging. as i've said before, there won't be a dyno, perhaps until much much later.

i'll get a video next time i drive the thing, hopefully the blowoff sounds will come out with the window open.
