Quick shifter to Flatshifter?

Hi. I'm currently in the process of swapping a Translogic quickshifter, ( stick with clutchless up shift ), to a new Flatshifter Expert system, ( paddles with clutchless up and down with blip ). The new system is supposedly plug and play and I'm getting to the stage where I've temp located/fitted the paddles/actuator/control boxes etc. As my electrical expertise is woeful my plan was to get as far as poss and see how simple the wiring job is. However as I've started to remove the old system Ive realised it has connections running to each coil from the control box. On this basis will I need to get the system returned to standard before installing the new Flatshifter kit?

Thanks for any advise on what might be a simple question.

Ed

I genuinely have no idea how your old system might be wired, but my guess would be that the extra wiring is additional earths to cut the ignition and can be removed. But impossible to say without looking.

Happy to pop over sometime to take a look.

Hi Will. Yes that's my understanding and whilst the new system has a similar set up I'm not sure whether it's best to try to utilise the current connections or cut it all away and start again? It's hard to trace it all and definitely not my forte so don't want to start cutting away.. The flatshifter instructions and diagram look fairly straightforward if starting with a standard set up. Appreciate your offer to take a look and will drop you a pm. Cheers, Ed

You will need to connect the flatshifter to the coil wires, not easy to explain but orange flatshifter wire will need to be connect to coil wires, blue flatshifter wire will need to connect to the other side of the coil wires which should head back to the Ecu.
