Transmission Control Module. It's the computer that controls the funtions of the transmission.

It does not come with the Spartan tunes. It is an entirely different module than the stock unit. If you run the upgraded TCM you also must run the Spartan tunes that are built for the TCM. You can not run non TCM tunes with the upgraded unit.
