    If you get one of those Abbott ERA boxes Electronic Ratio Adapter (ERA) you can use the signal from your ABS and trigger the ERA box to adjust the ratio for the speedo to read correctly. It has dip switches to allow proper adjustment. This is how I did it prior to my 6R80 conversion and it worked flawlessly.

    Mine is off front abs. Used my hand held to correct it. I got it within 1 mph of gps so calling it good.

    Took the car out yesterday for the first time since the swap. Damn it's nasty. I thought I was going to use the "Mantronic" mode to race. I am going to use that so I don't piss off my neighbors coming home at 3-5am.

    So to answer any questions on how it drives. It drives like a MVB that you don't have to shift. I have it set on 6krpm medfirm shifts. And it's just that. in every gear, just nasty, loud. Sounds like a damn dodge now. The blower noise is just awesome.

    My conclusion. If you want factory shift points for going to the grocery store go get the coyote ecu set up. If you want a snarling beast... Go with the us shift.

    And if anyone with the factory ford cruise control. Hook up the "mantronic" and 2 pushes of the CC off button engages it. Set Accel button upshifts and the coast button downshifts. In any gear so putting around the neighborhood you won't be at 5-6rpm's. Which your neighbors will like.
