Now this is what really confuses me.
If you look at ROMs, as soon as a given model picked up the 32bit ECU (at the same time, picking up drive-by-wire throttle pedal) the separate A/t and M/t ROMS become one.
I have confirmed that my map includes both auto and manual tables. (Via tactrix connection). Also, any of the sites that you can download the maps from have only one, which works for both auto and manual. So, this 32-bit ECU doesn't seem to be able to be tricked by an external wire, and are not ROM-specific either.
So that leaves a physical hardware difference, inside the case... Unless I'm missing something.
