Hey guys,

top one is a VS Clubby Manual, Cherry Black, originally sold by Ralph D'Silva Preston Vic. (according to the VIN.
the bottom one is an Auto VR 185kw, retrofitted by HSV means they fitted it.

the auto PCM wont run the manual memcal, it needs the 64k eprom.
the auto PCM wont work in a manual car with the auto memcal.
i think the wrecker has mixed up the donor vehicles.
the VIN on the label is for a manual car, the PCM is of course an auto.

I beg to differ. I ran a PCM with a factory (auto) memcal in my car for a few months (after a manual conversion :D ). It kept getting error codes saying the transmission was faulty. lol

I think what you mean is that a PCM wont work with the manual engine harness, as the pinouts are drastically different between ECM and PCM.

The harness plugs are slightly different from ECM to PCM, so you can't plug the wrong one in without taking to the plug with a stanley knife and shaving off the locking keys.

Shaving the locking keys on an auto harness to plug in a manual computer is one of those "don't try this at home" things.

Ah I see now (I get your joke too Dr Bob), I didn't realise the sticker on the computer had just been stuck on when it got pulled a part. Make sense now :). I wonder what happened to the manual ECU :p musta got sold as a auto one
