The launch control logic is also the same. The only difference is a flag animation in the e9x KOMBI. I do not see anything in the e60 coding traces for DKG but a few other ones do, including the CIC and EKPM.

So you're saying the display on the E9x cluster shows something for launch control? Seems relatively useless as long as the transmission works.

Edit: You may need to make a trip to Maine if ACG and I work out the details on this. I'm not ready to commit on my own project until late this year or early next year.

I'm in 100%, just let me know when.

- and, yes. When launch control is activated in e9x there is an animated race flag that waves. BUT i'm with you....as long as it works, I could do without the flag.

Can someone with scan software please unplug their SMG controller from the PT can and cycle they key so we can see which messages DME is looking for on the can from the SMG? (I don't have my car right now)

I don't even use LC any longer, as long as I can shift faster then that is all I need at this time.

I'll work up a rough price sheet for Paul and see how it looks. I'm still looking in ISTA at the DCT wiring diagrams to see where the other end of the DCT loom connects.

I have a spreadsheet I was using to match up mss65 wiring to a Motec M190. I cleared it and I'm starting to build one for the DCT. I'll put it on googledocs and post the link here.

It branches out 2 ways to connectors x6031 x6021. Technically all we need to do is make an adapter harness from the 2 affected connectors on teh smg controller down to the round 20 pin @ the dct.

I'm willing to bet that changing the shifter is pointless. It has to receive those signals the same way the SMG does.
