No Kill switch as I will not be racing this thing anytime soon.well if i recall a 200 amp should be used you will know once it starts tripping ps do you have a kill switch installed
That will be another under taking.Not too bad. I like that Tesla screen concept you are working on. When are you going going to attach the Tesla batteries and electric drive motor to the mk3 Supra as I really would like to see someone make a electric mk3 Supra?
The conversions are to free up the mechanical system (ie no more power steering pump spinning all the time) and unrelated, lose some weight.What's involved in the power steering? You just have to figure out the canbus control for variable boost?
Is the brake booster just a vacuum pump system?
Just curious why you would be doing these conversions, if there are advantages, or just something neat to do?
If you want some information on how many amps the Tesla Model S steering rack pulls I can give you some data.
I investigated both the Model S and 3 - 12V electrical systems.
Looks like you have some cool things in store for this Supra!
Funny enough, this whole idea came from the teslorean build. I have been on both the Tesla and BMW boards (I can fill you in offline) scouring for CanBus info.No, I perform whole vehicle powernet investigations. (Primarily 12V & 48V systems)
Unfortunately I won't be able to help much on the canbus ID's, didn't look at that much.
I will send you a couple logs one of these days if you are interested.
Might help you size any fuses/relays/wiring ect... in the EPS system you are designing.
The iboosters are pretty cool units, nice gearing inside.
Teslorean might be a good source for information on scavenging all these Tesla parts.
Well i dislike the feel of the wet noodle once i take the targa off.Are you keeping the speakers in the back once you get all the bugs fixed? I love riding with my targa out, but you don't have any targa holders and I'm not sure it'll fit behind your seats. Just curious as to what you are going to do. I take my top out and put my weezl wings in. I don't drive mine if there's chance of rain anyways since I'm on MT ET streets.
Electric brake is different than the tried and true master brake booster setup in that now a motor provides the assist and not vacuum. Other than that there is still a direct connection to the piston that influences the brake pressure in case there is a failure of the electrical system, you go back to full mechanical brake without assist (no different than when the engine stalls out).ps electronic brakes feel awful can't feel the road hell it's hard to feel a warpped rotor some times
Mr Lange.Always good to see people try to bring vehicle back from the brink. Looking good. Just read through the thread and had one point to make if it's helpful.
The EFI water temp sensor connector is still available from Toyota, part number is 90980-10736. TE/AMP Sealed Sensor Connector (SSC) series part number is 184004-1 for the correct keyed (Key C) connector.

WOW Figgie!! Sheesh you got your hands full in this one.
I managed to get Bishops old 1992 with a BHG. Looking to be getting into it in the near future. Loads of old rare parts in it.
No deal per say. This is a requirement to become a MoTeC dealer which I am in the middle off doing.Did you get a deal on that motec? I always wonder how people justify running the motecs, are they really that much better than ECUs that cost 1/2 or 1/4 as much? Maybe for a dedicated race car, but on a street car?
