I think I'm one of the only people to convert a civic from manual to auto but I'm almost done now. I gotta get my old car running with this old drive train and engine. It's tough haha

Still going strong. Havnt been able to do any aero mods yet. But I think I may have stumbled a pin something I teresting. My speed sensor isn't working, it usually stays at 0 mph but sometimes pops up and down randomly and returns to 0. The thing is, on the free way my mpguino tells me (for instance) I'll be at 1 gph, but when the speed sensor kicks on it goes up to 1.20 and back to 1 when the speedo goes to zero. I can feel a power difference too. Like when it kicks in and out of lean burn. So the fuel tables are noticeably different when the car thinks it's not moving. When I replace the sensor I'm going to try it with the speedo working and see what happens and then try it with it just wired to my mpguino and not to my ecu. Maybe I'll put a switch on it so I can test it side by side.

You have to admire someone who just won't listen to "You can't do that!".
