An Automatic G60 Corrado uses a different ECU and also a Throttle POT. I think the POT is used by the ECU to tell the transmission to drop a few gears but as the ECU is aware of the throttle position would it not be possible to have the drop a few gears signal or whatever to the automatic transmission into something that can be used to improve throttle response or performance.

Be brutal if this is a crap idea tell me now! Laughing

I would imagine that it will get you nothing, as the throttle pot will only be an add on to determine kickdown....probably study Laughing

So it will just be a change in resistance over time type switch not actually a POT reading or something that could be used in another way. It was Yandards that put the thought in my head!! I blame him! Laughing

Well, I'd imagine it will be a pot going into an analogue input on the ECU. The ECU will then have a strategy on it that will determine the rate of change of the resistance of the pot and if it is above a certain calibrated value, it will output a signal to the transmission controller.....probably
