Makes it fun to drive the manual with a ruined left knee. I did this to my old -78 99 in High school after tearing up my Knee and driving a used up 900 auto. A buddy brought a video of a rally car with the clutch moving when he grabbed the lever. Said I could figure it out. A trip to the industrial salvage store and an evening in the workshop and it was done. Worked great till the little air tank ran out. Using a larger 5lb C02 tank now. Eventually this winter I plan to use a micro-controller to read a force sensor on the pedal. Also will need some speed dependent return rate with a servo.

Aside from the labor the parts are not really that expensive. Those ap. mmm Price that module. OUCH! ;)

Used the factory extra light switch kit as override, so it is easy to just turn off. But can drive it normally anytime if needed. Its not a Sensonic with only 2 pedals.

Got it on the dyno for some checking this morning. Aside from the 750s being too small all is good. All better was junk e30 instead of e85 last fillup. Race Konis are mounted along with the slicks. Got them heat cycled out playing. I hate those uprights. If it was a 9-5 I would swap to harder springs since it is cornering harder now. Ready for SOC next week.
