Hi fellow Variomatic fans, I need some help. The new engine spec for my V66 includes a modern Emeraldecu engine management system that is capable of much more than I need on just the new engine. I would like to use it to control the vario as well and am wondering what people think the ideal setup would be. The later V340 has a tachometric system but I’m not sure what revs it switches on the change-up side of the vario. Once this is sorted I was thinking maybe when accelerating, 80% throttle position to switch off the change-up side instead of the full throttle needed on the standard setup. At full throttle (the ecu has a throttle position sensor) the change down (hill descent switch/brake switch) side could be activated but turned off at a certain rev limit, maybe 6500 rpm. I’m not sure how to do this really, I don’t know exactly what the standard inputs to the Variomatic EMVK valve are. Any help or info much appreciated.
