Ok so my 98 Tracer is an automatic and i am swapping it to a 5spd. As i was searching the subject i read somewhere that i will also need to swap the PCM when i swap the transmission. Well today I went to a local guy that deals mainly with just escorts to buy all the parts i need, and he said i did NOT need to swap the PCM. He said i would only need to swap the pcm if i was converting a 5spd to an automatic which is the oppisite of what im doing. If somebody could clarify this for me it would help a lot. I just don't want to change my PCM if i don't need to. Thanks.
