    I use a guy from Red deer. He brings is "no name" and "fuse" E85 and E98. I "think" it's $325 and $375 per barrel (208 litres).

    His name is Adam Vokes

    I believe the VP folks beside the airport can supply E85 or know a friend who......

    VP is almost 3 times the cost of Adam.

    The new wheel is in. The PDK wheel is Can based and runs no direct wires. Sometimes seemingly simple tasks are not so simple. I've ordered an OBD shield for a micro controller so I can sniff the can bus to get the paddle codes. Then I'll use the codes on the bus to shift the air shifter.

    Here is all you can see of the nearly 1000 ft of wire I added to the car.

    do you know how much modification of the code will be needed for the air shifter? I take it the controller will accept multiple programming until its dialled in. can it be done on the fly?

    I have used a sharktuner for ignition and fi system mapping that records live as you go down the road so the resultant fine tuned map can be uploaded to eproms in the respective ecu.

    Everything on the can bus has an "identifier" and a value. Once I learn the hex values for the up and down shifts, I'll pass them along to the shifter manufacturer. He will listen for those identifiers in the shifter ECU (which is connected to the can bus) and know that an up or down shift has been requested. He's going to build those into a new custom firmware for me. The can bus is a pretty awesome thing, it's just more complicated than running a dedicated wire

    I'm waiting to get my can bus, engine ECU and harness back from my Syvecs tuner. I sent them off so he can build the harness exactly how he likes it. I'm out of I/O pins and have to add an additional I/O expander to my ECU. This is a complex build and the tuner needs to understand it 100%. Once I get everything back (early January) I'll connect it all to the bus and "hopefully" I can see the shift requests from the 997.2 steering control module.

    I'm 99% done my build until my engine returns.

    Congrats on the progress to date James.
    Can't wait to see it start making some insane passes this summer!

    thanks........I was curious if you were building the code yourself; now makes perfect sense.

    The Sharktuner I referenced takes the reading out of the equation for me; thankfully!!! I find it fascinating it can read all parameters by going for a lengthy drive with a willing passenger working the laptop who can handle idle to cruise to WFO runs

    Perhaps, if you dont already have, build in a gear indicator with a shift light aka F1.
