its an 01 altezza gita. got to figure out the semi drive by wire. low on the list of things to do as the 5M runs and still shreds good. has its limits, but thats alright too
nope. I took it apart and drilled out the slot in the throttle wheel, clocked the arm in the back, made sharpie marks to see stationary and wot, and then moved it. I saw it was "dead" for a large area and then at the end of the stroke it moved the throttle plate. what the dm piece does is make up the difference and leaves the slot where it is, I just emulated it as its quite simple. I held the little arm where it needed to be and then used red loc tite to make it stationary and blipped it on with a impact driver. tested it on the manifold and made sure it opened all the way. if it fails for some reason, I know what happened.Nice! Such a perfect motor for a mk2.
I like how you nuked a few of the more difficult parts of the swapping this particular version. There are ecus that can drive the electric throttle but its still simpler this way. Did you use the drift motion plate in the throttle assembly to convert it?
