"Murphy" Lives... Finally The 87 T-Wag Runs

Throttle response is a bit sluggish and the check engine light is on. Boy they make those brite in this serries.
The turbo light comes on sooner than I expected (about 2k rpm). But that might be due to the check engine problem.
I don't have passing mode with the auto trans; you know, when you mash the gas pedal to the floor and the tranny kicks into high grear.
There is a sensor screwed into the block, just in front of the flywheel opening. It's fried. What is it?

Assuming it's a three speed tranny, sounds like maybe the kickdown relay or maybe the vacume moduator. Don't have much experience with autos, but that would be my first guess.
Hope that helps.

If the pedal is hitting it, then the problem could be with the actual relay on the transmission. It's on the passenger side, just in front of the vacuum modulator (thing with a vacuum line going to it).
With the key on, you should be able to flip the switch by the gas pedal with your finger and have someone else listen for the relay on the tranny to click.
In my new t-wagon, the dash gauge shows it spooling by about 2K also. This is my first turbo, so I'm not sure if that's normal for these cars or not.
