    Is it worth my while to put a brake light switch on my clutch, run it to an aux input on my ECU, retard the timing to around -20 to -40 deg and add about 40% more fuel? Theoretically, this will minimize the turbo spooling down in between shifts.

    I know I can do this on my ECU but I was hoping that someone knows more about this or has tried it.

    What turbo do you plan on running that you need anti-lag?

    It will put more stress on the turbo and shorten it's life.

    Hmm been on there for over a year.

    Full GTR..... Microtech ECU

    As for the lag is not the initial spool up, but more keeping it from spooling down loosing boost in between shifts.

    Wonder how long it would last if I only has it set like this for specific events.

    so you want to run it like a two step in a way but instead of different boost levels you want different fuel maps? i say build a map for it and use that map when wanting to use ate specific events. otherwise leave it liek it should be.

    all in all i really doubt the gtr has that much issue when shifting.

    Well I can set it up fairly easy on a switch. Just disabling the brake switch on the clutch as I don't want the turbo spooking down before the ECU sees it. As for the maps, using it as per say AUX input setup to run when the car sees a shift (will be the brake switch as it will be faster) I can tune specfic timing/fuel maps for it not based on load or RPM.

    But you are right the 23 doesn't spool down all that fast nor take any time at all to spool back up. In fact before I put in the short shifter i could be a t full throttle still have the pedal almost to the floor and shift cleanly. Can't do it now with the stupid shifter. I hate that thing.

    if you hate the shifter so much give it to me! short shifters take a bit of getting used too. but are much nicer when in a hurry. LOL

    Not nicer when I am forced to completely remove my foot from the cgas to shift. Double clutch or not get irritating and only started with the short shifter, I have the bronze bushings in there also.... may trade for a stocker again wish something else I could use I dunno.

    i dont think its worth it, and its just going to make it more likely to break gears like i did the other day. being at full boost already when you let the clutch out = major drivetrain shock loading.

    You're talking more of a flatshift than a true antilag, which would utilize the IAC valve to operate...

    I intend to rewire the aux in on my ECU tomorrow to the correct switch (ugh) and give the flatshift a try, we'll see what I break.
