Smile Attn. AU owners after the BTR Elec. Shift Kit

I've done all the measuring of amperes and voltages and found that to do the elec. shift kit mod to the AU just use the same method as for the EF, which is - Cutting PIN 81 of the ECU and insert(essentially joining) a resister with nothing less than a 4.7ohm rating on the cut wire then run from the ECU end a 20/22ohm resistor to pin 71 of the ECU. This will give a nice quick gear change without been harsh, go higher if you wish or use a varible resistor. I've tested this and have left it permanant. Sure the shifts are definatly heaps firmer but not enough to put a switch(why would you want to go back!) This is the best $5 mod ever. BTW. It's been ranging in eastern suberbs melb now so I did drive in the wet and if you really fang it you'll go sideways between 1&2 and 2&3 but in the AU's is controlable FYI.
Also make sure you use 10W resisters(there's the big ass ones!)

It seems the EEC-V in the Au's has the same pinouts as the EF?

Does anyone have a max ellery workshop manual for the EF / AU, and can scan a few of the back pages with the ECU current ramps for the S5 solenoid.

Im still trying to chase up why the EF / AU's require a larger resistor than EB / ED / EL when the current to the S5 solenoid should be the same.

Wiring diagrams are on my original post in the mechanical forum.

I've got pre-made modules available if anyone is interested,
They are switched modules.

Falkeen, You really need to just get down and under the passenger foot rest area and just solder up the resisters. Its a bit of a strain but pretty easy really. 9psi EB i tried chasing a max ellery workshop manual for the AU but was told they weren't out yet but im sure the EF one would be applicable here.

ok, just to make sure im on the same page, this essentially just makes the shifts between gears quicker? how much quicker are we talking? like the difference between econ and power?

I am really interested in this!

cheers

mmm interesting, and do these resitors just come from tandy's or something (not overally big on electronics) and is it worth putting a switch in.

Also can you transform it back to normal (presumming you can, just checking though)

and what would it do to warranty if caught with it (presumming void)

cheers

younggun, do it and leave it permanantly on, it really just makes the shifts real quick like a blink of an eye instead of the lag previously, its not massively harsh or anything. my wife drove it for the first time since the mod and she said its real responsive now not knowing i did the mod. said nothing bout it being too harsh and she woulda if it was! so......just goto you local electronic store and just ask for a 22ohm and 4.7ohm 10watt resistor and hook it up and enjoy.
