I know that quite a few people have installed holset turbos myself included, but it has always been hx or hy models. but has anyone tried a HE35v1 with vnt and electronic wasegate? I know that many think its either impossible, too hard, or just plain stupid to do. But wouldn't it be as simple as running the tps, a map sensor, egt and a few other analog inputs to an arduino at328, writing the code shouldn't be a problem. Am I wrong to think that i could use the vnt application to curb the turbo lag that is common in holsets.
I would like a little input on this before i jump straight into it.

thanks for the link Sha-d. I guess if a kid with a dsm can figure it out then i shouldn't have a problem doing this since I have a masters in electronic engineering. im not so sure i like how he is trying to control it though. I think that running multiple analog signals to the arduino then demutiplexing them and converting them to a pwm signal to the control unit would be more reliable. at least wiring will be a peice of cake.

If you manage to get that working it would be awesome. A while ago I got into reading about those vgts but controlling the electronic wastegate that manages how close/open the fins get seemed to be the real issue. Anyway, a properly tuned holset vgt would be a nice setup indeed.
