Does anyone know if any of the other available ECUs (Abbott, SpeedParts, etc) for 2000 9-5 aero AUTO trans limit the torque in first and second gears? ChipCenter seems to be the only option that has a lower torque number for the auto than the manual trans. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Its not the trionic ECU that limits the toprque, the TCM tells trionic the torque is to much, only then will trionic lower the value.

I was told by ChipCenter that their ECU will limit torque in first in second gears... Is the TCM still going to tell an aftermarket ECU to retard torque? I was under the impression they specifically limited torque in their program for 1st and 2nd gears in an automatic. Do any of the other aftermarket ECU programs offer different power levels based on auto or manual trans? I havent seen any distinctions.

Tcm will retard torque regardless I believe..
unless trionic is programmed to ignore the command from the TCM.
