Lightbulb OMFG They Didn't Switch out the TCM!!!!

(for those of you not familiar with my perpetually broken volvo) so, ever since the tranny job, my car has been NOT pulling 2385623 codes, but it was still limp home moding and being all around stupid. turns out the people who sent us the tranny (from an 03) didn't send us the TCM (from an 03) SO OF COURSE MY CAR WON'T GO ANYWHERE.

the TCM from that tranny is being shipped and the software is already at my mechanic!

looks like it wasn't a haunted volvo ghost at all!!!! i can safely say that everything under the hood (other than the engine block) is new to the car now so i shouldn't have any problems for about 25,000-30,000 if all goes well haha!

tell me if we missed anything while fixing this car:
water pump, thermostat, timing belt/pulley/tensioner, serpentine belt/tensioner, radiator, tranny, MAF sensor, all oxygen sensors, coils, fuses, starter, multiple hoses, vacuum blah blah, wire harnessing, and an ECM REBUILD!!!

and it wasn't even a broken part that was making my car not work right!

pics upon exiting the shop when i go over the black trim with showroom dye, and put in my cd player/speakers!

Man, you might as well get a new frame and pain job to complete a "New Car Build"..... At least you will have the car soon on the road, and whom knows maybe have it for the next meet! Good Luck........

But the car would not need the 03 module to make it work right.
The transmission module in your car would just have to me calibrated to the tranny.

The car needed to be put into program mode and driven till it was all done.
