Results will be presented from a study of the QCD transition region using 2 + 1 flavors of fermions and a dislocation suppressing gauge action on a lattice with temporal extent of 8 and spatial extent 16 (1.9 - 2.7 fm). A series of temperatures from 140 through 200 MeV, separated by 10 MeV have been studied. All the simulations lie on a line of constant physics with 200 MeV pions, realized using domain wall fermion, a chirally symmetric fermion formulation. The chiral condensates, susceptibility, anomalous symmetry breaking and a detailed study of the Dirac spectrum will be described and compared with earlier staggered results.
