The car is Automatic and from what I know they are driving it like a stock car its a full Twin turbo VVt-i swap transmission, engine, wiring and ecu.I saw the video... (which looked like it had several dash lights still on after starting) and it showed the pushbutton start working.... that's not the same as the whole smartkey/security system working... which is why I asked.
Obviously not everything works like factory... I don't believe TC still could work same as factory without the original motor for example but the driver probably wouldn't care about it... there's possibly other things, depending on what they actually did to get the rest to work (ie is the original ECU still in the car at all? if so what is it being told is happening?)
What transmission is in there? is it the V160 in your sig or is there an auto in there? (mentioning the paddle shifters but having a V160 in your sig is what confuses me there)
(and please don't mistake my questions for anything negative, great job on getting this working, it's certainly lightyears ahead of any of the other conversions that have been attempted just by getting it to start/run and have working gauges and AC).
The-IS is Lance Son.Hey Kurt,
It's not The-IS's car, it's Lance (Toyomoto) that owns the car and probably built the car. Either way, it's kinda exciting to see.
