Tallon you can just hook the JRK up to the computer via usb and the JRK up to your Actuator with feedback using the picture in the post above and make the actuator move. You can also mount the Actuator to the transmission and write down the points of all your gears so then I can put it into the code.

Here is how the the JRK hooks up to the Actuator with feedback, another picture of the generic gear locations on the code and the last picture is of the DOT matrix display that will go behind the OEM dash (code still needs to be written Digibeam is working on it ::beers)

Do I really need neutral? I'd like to keep sport because I can change modes on mine, then Park and drive. Or maybe have neutral as a button somewhere else but not sure where.

Here are a few pictures of the box before it was sealed and after. Also is a video I shot last night of it installed and working.

Thanks for the close up pics Bull ::thumbup On my E-Gear plate instead of having Sport, Corsa & Traction. I will prob just do P, N, D on the top of the buttons. ON the spoiler and bat wings they would be easy to activate from the Arduino if we can figure out how to get some sort of feedback into the system.

Thanks guys!!! I feel blessed to have found such a good woman. She likes me busy in the shop and enjoys helping when possible.
I have to financially recover before taking a honeymoon, so back to work for me.

I'm drawing up the egear console plate and buttons right now :)

For the spoiler/bat wings- I was thinking of using an encoder and scale system. You would get the reading from the speed sensor, into the encoder, into the scale which then would power a 12v actuator. It would provide fluid movement of the spoiler and wings instead of moving a certain distance and stopping through out its min to max movement. You can get all of the stuff required from mini cnc suppliers, but it needs a simple pc and program to operate...

The paddle shift computer is very cool. You can incorporate your programming knowledge towards an adjustable spoiler now   :)
 ::K I will be working on projects this week with any available time.   ::K  ::beers

 The  adjustable spoiler  and bat wings would be  fairly simple,   There use to be a module that could convert the vss signal to   trigger a relay at a given speed  all you would need then would be limit switches....   
 If I get time to  work on the  odometer etc then it should not be a big deal,  I spoke to  USMC  about  that before on driving the  bat wings  using the vss  that way  you could have the raise at  60mph  or whatever speed you set  and lower  when drop below set speed... I remember finding the module several years ago and made a post on MM  about it, seems then it was around $70.. 
 I'm working  near 70 hours a week  but if I  get time  I will play with the  vss controlled  bat wings and spoiler  some.. Usmc will probably  get  closer to finishing  something like that long before me due to time..  I'm really impressed with what he has done  from the few short conversations on the paddle  shift  from few months ago...


BTW,  Congrats....

Finally done! In car testing tonight, even though my axles won't be done atleast I will be able to install, test and shift! Tomorrow I will will post up a link to the code, it will be open source! I am not responsible for any damages this may or may not cause, use at your own risk! You may edit the code to your custom use! I will post exact links to hook up the system with picture's. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, shoot me a PM and will be able to help you....! This hopefully will be a good breakthrough and hope this helps everyone ::LAMBO
