    Hi all,
    1. When the auto gearbox collapsed I decided to rebuild with a manual
    instead. All is well and fine, the car performs nicely with only one
    hitch. Every now and then, when to engine is strained it seems as if the
    ignition "fails", the car has a hiccup or however to describe it which I
    find a bit annoying. Could it be that the electronics have to be
    reprogrammed as it this seems to happen when the RPM sinks to a level
    where kickdown or gearchange would have happened had it still been an
    automatic gearbox??

    2. Anyone knows if there is any electrical wiring scheme available on
    the net? Its for a 5 cyl 170 BHP 850 -92.

    This is a possibility, can you be much more specific with regard to what RPM
    this happens at, throttle positin, and whether the hiccup is reproducable at

    Off the top of my head, I think this engine runs the twin combined ECU setup
    (Ign / Fuelling + gearbox) How exactly did you convert it with regard to the
    the electronics?
