Re: [DML] Re: Auto trans shift Kit



Or buy my brand new Computer Governor, which does all that with all new
components, and puts it in the engine compartment where it is easy to get to
(without having to remove the old one)
I also give you dash lights so you can see what gear the CG is set to.

If you are interested, email me for more details.
