I love those "mountain man" jack stands. Looks like they worked well.

Transmission controller is absolutely awesome 100% happy with it
Super easy to make it work and shifts at any desired rpm,

Controller was $ 590
I got TPS sensor from 1995 H1 for $ 115 bucks

Aftermarket rpm sensor for $65 bucks

Amd done.
