RE: [DML] Re: New Automatic Transmission Computer

I would be interested in this as well, price pending.
Right now I use a toggle switch to turn my computer on and off.
When ON, it shifts from 1st to 2nd, but won't go to 3rd.
When I turn it off, it defaults to 3rd.
Sort of like a paddle shifter, except it's a toggle switch on my time drive 
Let me know the cost.
