If you are getting it reflashed/ tuned, yes. A straight swap from auto to manual or vise verse will not work.

It's tuned, stage 4, JSP.

We're trying to figure out a trade;

I have a stage 4 auto that I don't want anymore.
He has a stage 3 that I do want.

I am not doing a turbo swap.

Any suggestions? Or are we doomed?

I'm in the middle of a projected move across the country.

I will be driving my car across the country.

I have an entire porch full of car parts for sale.

Yes, the simple mod would be to spend $200, AGAIN. to downgrade a tune.

I'd rather put my td04 back ON the new car, throw my ecu in, and be out... time.

I just don't want to spend money or deal with it. You know?

And I'd setup t5 suite before spending money on a tune; I'm adept enough to dismantle an entire car, I think I can run some wires and click a button. =)

Sorry, quitting smoking too.
