  1. Hi Adam, Can you tell me if, On the cruise, does 'yellow is set DI' mean connect it to a digital input? Thus another DI for each of the others? So Link just cancels via brake input?
  2. I think I will actually power the SSR from the PDM on a 7.5 amp point with a 10 amp wire and loop the next door 7.5 amp in to feed it 15 amps. There are plenty of 7.5 amp points. On the cruise, does 'yellow is set DI' mean connect it to a digital input? Thus another DI for each of the others? So Link just cancels via brake input?
  3. Here are my mods. I've run a fresh supply for the E-throttles as the PDM has few outputs over 7.5 amp. Also the schematic for the cruise switch. Link E-throttle layout.pdf cruise circuit.docx
  4. OK Adam, I can do that. I can supply their voltage from an ignition source through 2 solid state relays? Or can one relay feed thhe both? 10 amp should cover them should it not? The cruise switch schematic is as I've drawn it. I copied it from the factory diagram. It has 4 wires black one is from the ignition and the other 3 go to the control module. Control module wires go to constant 12v, speedo, earth and bulb check unit and 2 to the actuator, which is vacuum controlled on this model and aren't very good. The column stalk has 3 operation positions; forward = set/accelerate, down =
  5. I haven't looked for 82mm but the supplier [efi solutions] of my 74mm bodies supplied the pinout for them. Interestingly, I have 2 Mercedes/Bosch bodies, 74mm that are close to identical to the new ones I bought but the pinout seems different, in that when I power plate, it works backwards!
  6. I've been finalizing my E-throttle setup and I'm about to wire it up. There have been a few changes to correct some stuff, so I'd be very grateful if this attached drawing could be checked, I really need to get this right. Also, the cruise control switch on the bottom left of the drawing, is the stock Porsche one and is part of the column stork but the factory wiring diagram show all but the power feed wires just going into the control module. Is there any way to work out what I should hook to my Thunder EU and where? Link E-throttle layout.pdf
  7. I found this video on youtube, 'very basic' instruction but clear. It seems I've gone way too far into the plug and I didn't need to separate the halves. Thank Sterling, you found the exact same one, well done. I've been over thinking it!
  8. I'm not getting your file Adam. It downloads as IMG_2393.MOV and previews as finger and thumb holding the plug but fails to do anything else. I had a look at plugs B & C to see the structure and I want to remove 10 of the wires from plugs A & B that I wont be using and put them in C or D. I've got the role of the white lock bit and can see that it frees the pins but when I try to open up plug A, the pins don't want to come away from the white bit. I've slid the large black bit back down the loom a bit, to give me room to work and some wires/pins will move as if they want
  9. Is there a method, tools or a description of the assembly and disassembly of the AMP loom plugs, A, B, C &D? I'm quite familiar with Deutsch type plugs but these are quite different.
  10. yes 2 x e-throttles Well spotted on the fuel pressure/temp sensor ground. I have it in the drawing and on my spread sheet but missed it out of this! Plug D Pin #1 will have power from the front Power Distribution Module for Aux 17 & Aux 18 APPS is grounded @ Plug D Pin #5 Oil Pressure is powered from Plug A Pin #32 +5V and grounded @ Plug B Pin #22 My fans, 4 of them are controlled by dedicated controllers i didn't omit pin outs for plugs C&D, I've only just finished them. I'm most concerned about getting the E-throttle/pedal correct and I keep readin
  11. OK, here's what I hope is my final layout, subject to your advice, for plugs A & B. Link Plug A.pdf Link Plug B.pdf
  12. I've just opened my Loom A & B packets and I find some of the wires on Loom A are labelled. Nice. What is the intended purpose for Green wire from Gnd Out [pin A24] marked TPS 1? Throttle position sensor as in mechanical throttle body, or TPS 1 in E-Throttle [if so, which throttle body], or throttle pedal position sensor? I thought I had my 2 E-Throttle wires all sorted until I found this.
  13. So, is it best to solder straight into the 'D' plus and forget the connector?
  14. I have 2 Link Thermo-couples to connect to my Link Thunder and they come with substantial heat resistant shielding. What is the recommended method of connecting them to the 'D' plug on the Thunder, for future service? Connecting then directly into plug 'D' would mean changing them [if one ever failed or got damaged] would be a hassle. Can I simply put a Deutsche 2 pin plug at or near the Thunder ECU?
  15. I think I'll use the 6mm holes that the stock throttle body mounted to, as I'll have nothing in the valley except the 2 knock sensors. Plus there are the original earth points [MP IX & MP VIII] on the bell housing. I have also increased the size of the earth cable from the chassis rail to the lower block and the 2 from the inner guards to the 2 cam towers [MP III & MP X].
