Hi, I have 2 questions that I am looking for answers on.

First question, does anybody know why the intermediate band adjustment for 1995-1998 5R55E is 2.5 turns back while all other years are 2.0 turns back?

Second question is about the extra overdrive speed sensor on the 97 5R55E. I have read that in some situations you should disconnect it and tie the wires together, and if you replace the trans with another year that doesnt have it then you must tie them together. I thought I had seen a tsb but cant find it now. So is it best to do this?
