5000 miles ago my 04 R went in for the shift flare from 2nd -3rd. It would take a second for the car to engage 2nd to 3rd. At that time they did a <U>full adaptation</U> process for the transmission ( I have a GT) I guess they reset the tranny software and "trained" the tranny to help with the shift flair. It worked great. Recently I noticed it is getting worse in those same gears again. My question to you guys is this...I have the IPD stage 2 software in my ecu and I am worried that if they do the <U>adaptaion process</U> again that it will wipe my ecu back to stock. Is this the case??? Shipping my ecu costed almost 100.00 bucks each way (UPS next day air) So I would like to avoid that cost if I can. All help is much appreciated in advance, Rick

Re: Shift flare from 2-3rd is back after 5000 miles on mt GT questions on the adaptation ...

I am positive the TCM transmission control module has nothing in common with the ECU. Easy enough to ask your dealer, if everyone is on holiday and other responses aren't quickly received. Just tell the dealer there is to be no rewriting of your ECU program. Also, be sure you have had this done:<br>Part #: 30677036-3 Description: TCM Upgrade<br>That corrected the flair problem in my previous 04.<br>Good luck,<br>Jim
