I am getting ready to install one of these has anyone got any pics of your home made micro switch bracket and where you are mounting it.

What are you setting it at? I was thinking between 2500 and 3000 rpm.

I generally launch Pumpkin around 4500. I'm going to use a Lingenfelter CTAP-01 box rather then a micro switch, much easier to adjust. Plan to start @ 95% setting on box, which would be 5% of clutch pedal travel off the the floor.

Yes and no. Stock with 3:91 gears and JRE caps and posi mod, LPW cover. Yes the clutch position sensor is in a very difficult spot at top of pedal bracket.

Well I was going to mount a micro switch somewhere at top of the pedal so it dose not release the 2 step till the pedal is all the way released
I guess I will have to fabricate something

I'd go with the Lingenfelter CTAP-01 box.

Might go that way after I look under the dash
After you calibrate the CTAP-01 box what settings do you use

I looked under the dash and ordered the Lingenfelter CTAP-01 box and the L480370108 plug and play harness I got a feeling that will save me a whole hell of a lot of aggravation

Thanks for getting me to look

Couple of tips:

Remove drivers seat for easier access.

To unplug the harness plug from clutch position sensor switch you must first remove a grey clip and then use a small pick to unlock second lock. It's pretty much blind and a total beach. Practice on the brake switch harness first it's the same and a lot easier to get at.

Question Merc. Could you use the brake harness and pedal to activate the CTAP-001 box on an A6. The idea being to hold say 1400rpm (or whatever rpm as long as it didn't push the car) and activate the 2 Step when the brake pedal lifted 5%?

I always hold rpm's against the brake pedal when I'm staged but when watching the tree I know I'm not holding consistant rpm's every pass.

Not sure. I'll be talking to Jason from Lingenfelter probably tomorrow I'll ask. He is thinking I have RF interference. Sent him pic's, He talking moving the MSD module farther away from motor and putting stock wires back on.

I would think you could put a manual switch in there and tie it into a line lock and the 2 step Pump the brakes up to hold it and release the button to launch it

Yes that would work for sure. Thought of trying that myself. Both the linelock and 2-step can be activated at the same time on one button through ground.

Not sure of what settings

I'm not sure of what settings to use on the Lingenfelter CTAP-01 box I would like it to release the 2 step close to the top of the clutch pedal any one have a idea what settings on the Lingenfelter CTAP-01 box to use ?

Also I installed the 2 step that was a piece of cake, but the harness plug on top of the clutch appears to be a real pain to get to, was hot out so I abandoned that for now .
Will probably attempt it again by the weekend. I had a clutch issue about 6 months ago and they put the ZL1 pedal assembly in mine don't think the brackets are much different, from what I was told its more of a clutch master difference

Taking a step backwards. Trying to find out why my MSD 2-step slows Pumpkin down 7 10th's. Sock wires are back on and the MSD module is mouthed as far from the plug wires as possible.

Just got that stupid harness plugged into the top of my clutch switch, What a pain in the Ass!!!!!!!!!!
I was unsuccessful, SO our service manager tried and got it in about 10 minutes, even got the gray clip back in and it started. the rest of it will be a piece of cake

What settings did you finally end up with on your CTAP-01 ?

Have yet to use it due to issues with the MSD box, but I have a two stage two step R&D box on the way from Lingenfelter for testing. I'll let you know soon as I can.
