Were did you get a 4.2 ABT chip?

Yes true the 4.2's TCU gets a signal from the WOT as I mentioned earlier. But if you use the 3.6 TCU & wiring the 4.2 trans will resort to the 3.6's TCU paramaters.

I remember all the nagging I had to do to pull these bits of info from the master (in his own mind..aka Keith ;-) & sure as shit I could feel a difference.
I've done the 3.6 ECU/wiring swaps to a few listers 4.2's & they are satisfied. But they are all so now running the ABT chip for the 3.6 cars. As far as the TCU swap...... I have never tried the TCU swap... but I'll find out for sure when I do.
I trust Keith not to BS me too much ;-)
All so, let me know if you still want that door handle & cable. I can send it off to you & just GTG with you when you make it out this way. I all so have the rear deck lid waiting for you.
