Yeah, look, I'm going to be frank here, I've heard all about that controller and I'm quite sick of hearing about it. Two pages of my thread are already dedicated to that glorified CANbus interface. That's all it is. It only takes your throttle position and rev signal and emits CAN bus packets for the stock GM transmission controller *inside* the transmission. That's it. It doesn't control solenoids or do much at all.

My controller is a proper controller. It bypasses the stock controller and takes direct control of the solenoids and sensors.

I didn't want to pay $999 USD for just an interface when my whole conversion only cost $1200 AUD and I can do more with it.

This is running in an '07 VZ. It's designed to be as flexible as possible, supporting up to VE Omega or can run on a vehicle without an ECU / fuel injection.
The newer design will mean it’s easy to mount. Heaps of spaces up behind the glove box and around there.

I like that it is a much higher feature, more flexible item than anything on the market.

Might be something Envyous Customs could help sell for you once it’s complete?

This was a really exciting thing to see coming along.

You’ve seen what people are using for this and gone, “Yeah, nah. Watch this. Hold my beer” and smashed out something miles ahead of what’s being used at the moment.

Nessesity is the mother of all invention.

Expertise and collaboration with someone like Haltec or Envyous Customs could really propel your project along.

I don’t know, hope your ok.

I'm sorry. I just freaked out. Struggling atm with the Victorian lockdown and all that. Feel shitty all the time.

I'll keep doing development. Just stuck in a rut atm, y'know? Feels like no one gives a ****.
