    Theory of compound turbos

    Yea - I was thinking of a standalone unit that plugged in to CAN bus somewhere - Marco hacking into the Cummins computer is beyond my abilities. I'm full of good ideas.. but talk is cheap and I'm lazy I do have a microcontroller here with a CAN interface, I could hook it up and see what is running around on the network - probably OBD2 stuff. Anyone have a junk VGT laying around I could play with?

    Theory of compound turbos

    I was thinking something with a map that controlled boost with inputs from load %, vehicle speed, engine RPM, and whatever other parameters make sense. You could adjust the map to control boost dependent on whatever previously mentioned parameters were coming from the vehicle. I'd have to hack into the CAN bus to pick up parameters, there's probably plenty of documentation on them. Some of the weird things I think about...

    I just went up to start the beast and the batteries are near dead The drivers door didnt shut all the way and the lights have been on for a while. I've got it on a fast charge right now, I'll put it on an automatic charger overnight but these ten year old Shwab batteries could be toast... Good thing there's another set in Longview!

    I've always thought that someone should come up with a standalone VGT Micro-controller... I've thought about playing around with it myself but I'm not sure of all of the inputs and outputs that are necessary.

  11. The carpet is there... The springs all broke so now there is a piece of goat fencing under the carpet holding it all to the frame. Not much spring in goat fencing...
  12. Thanks Gary! EDIT - A buck 25?? The springs are shot in my frame too - need it all. But I'd pay the $125 too. https://www.genosgarage.com/category/seat-cushions
