actually, don't do it. you can adjust it so it will force the gearbox to drop the gear sooner by pressing the accelerator rather then later

Ill also be looking into this. Mine always seems to like 3rd all the time. Even at 30-40km an hour... common with them though apparently.

The manual says oil has to be change in Tranny every 6 months.

i wouldn't be so drastic, these are jetco gearboxes wtih mazda brains... this is the same gearbox as in 300ZX.... just ZX box has more aggressive programming.

jetco boxes are fantastic better the borg-warners that were available in europe and middle east
