    electric transmission shifter for auto

    Has anyone seen an electric transmission shift for an automatic. I'm not looking for on to shift it for me like in a drag car, you know ones that up shift for you. I want one that will switch gears from park to ovd and every where in between. Any Ideas. Could make an easy paddle shiftter for a built up tranny !!!

    Re: electric transmission shifter for auto

    Unofficially, I have seen one. We have one stored in our mezzanine here at work. It's a proto-type that our parent company was working on prior to them buying us and moving in. It has a really neat little shifter that would fit nicely in my car and uses a servo motor that's mounted over the shaft on the trans that normally has the shift lever.

    If you hadn't noticed the other thread here, there is a thread on Pennocks by Ryan Hess. He's developing a trans controller for paddle shifting and controlling shift firmness. Pretty slick.

    My new car had push button shifting and a digi display showing the gear your in, it's a Lexus GS400. The Lexus IS300s have the v-6 with the same shifter, however both cars are RWD so the application can't be modified to work with midengine cars. Best to go with the new automanual and 3800SC engine from the new Grand Prix. More work but it would be a kick A$$ mod for a replica.

    Anyone want to put a Boxster engine with tiptronic transmission in a Fiero?
    Anyone have a clue if it would fit?
    Maybe use the rear suspension/axles of the boxster....

    Sure, I'll do it. You supply the Boxter parts, I'll supply the Fiero.

    lol,
    I just happen to have an extra boxster.
    I am going to have to part her out.
    I was going to save her for another project,
    but I need the money to do the Carrera GT project on the other boxster.
    The car is a 99 tiptronic. It ran up a tree sideways at the passenger door.
    The engine sounds real good.
