I was driving around today, and came across someone, and they told me that the ecu from an automatic, put into a stick, would increase power by at least 5hp. I was wondering if this was true, or if there's even a difference in the ecu of an automatic and a stick... he said said model car, just automatic, can someone tell me if this is true?
