I just got a replacement for my defective MAP sensor yesterday so last night I finished the programming.
I'm lazy, so I'll copy what I wrote on my Youtube video:
The actuator not only moves to multiple positions, but it does so accurately and is self correcting. In the beginning of the video you can see me forcing the vanes down. During which, the controller tries to fight me and then repositions back in the same location. I have 22 output voltage ranges from a GM 3-bar MAP sensor corresponding to 22 vane positions. So all I really have to do now is do some dyno runs and tweak the vane positioning to my car's power band.

This turbo is off of an 09 Dodge Ram with a Cummins. Are you referring to an older one? If so, then yes. It could be used on anything.

Yes it'a an 04.5 so if i understand you right, you locate the right wire in the map sensor and connect it there?

Hats off to you bro!... this is way cool!!... I just won an HE351VE for only 9.99 plus shipping on e-bay, can you believe it?? the turbo was listed only as "Cummins 6.7" or something like that with no reference to the brand name Holset or the Dodge truck it came from and I guess that's why no one else saw it and bid on it... I was the only one!!! Yay!! ...

I was considering ditching the electronics and using a regular pneumatic actuator as Aero did (or buy Fleece's actuator but they never got to respond my e-mail asking for details, guess they're too busy to take care of small cuatomers like me) ... now I definitely want to know what I can do to follow your lead... i?m already drooling at the tuning posibilities that your controller opens up for my own project...

You've stated you're not doing this for money, got my respect but I understand you already put some hard work hours on this project so... why don't you choose a charity that will accept Paypal depostis and I'll be glad to chip in as a token of my appreciation for any help I may get from you to build my own controller... does that sound fair to you?

Thanks man... keep up the good work!

I'm too lazy to pick a charity. Just ask specific questions and I'd be glad to answer.

Alright... thanks for the quick response...

Can you provide us with a detailed parts list and a smallish set of instructions to build our own controllers?

I'm assuming once the hardware is done you can provide us with the code too... I have never programmed a PIC before but it is my understaning that Picaxe, Arduino and some others like those are somehow easier to program for noobs like myself.

Thanks again, I can't wait to start building my own!!!

Just an update, I am extremely busy with school right now. I should have some free time in the next few days to really sit down and get into some details. No luck with the PWM route yet..
