@newtothegame, did you mean preservation of the trans?? Sorry I think that's what u meant but I was confused. I did not know I needed a tune for the trans as well, haven't looked that far ahead. I want to pay off my pathfinder before the trans swap. I'm having second thoughts about all this now.....which sucks because I have all the parts. E-85 is only available at 2 gas stations in my area (used to be 4), which sucks ballz. Also, I have NO aftermarket gauges currently, just using the AP (no bashing required, I know I should already have them). I know that I need to get some gauges, I've put it off too long. AND now I have read on P&L's website that a "Lambda" reading AFR gauge, and EGT gauge are mandatory for the E-85 tune, which is something that nobody over there mentioned in during my many phone calls. So here I am on 4/5 with no guages and not sure what I want to do, with a install/tune date scheduled for late May. What are your recommendations for a cheap, yet decent guage set (I would prefer factory clock replacement set-up as opposed to pillar), or possibly the Perrin steering wheel mount gauges. The perrin set-up is not offered as a combo with the two gauges I mentioned. I haven't contacted them yet. Maybe I should just wait until I can get the larger turbo and trans and do it all at once. It's just hard for me to look at all these parts every day. I wish I would have planned this out better. I could have.... but work, the economy, and buying a new home turned everything upside down on me. Cutting in on my toy-time/money. Let me know your thoughts.
