hakcenter are you doing both shields and standalone in this run?

I have shields being made right now, they are baron only. No one wants to put them together for me, which is why I designed them with through-hole

I'm having a problem with the standalones at the moment

I watch the forums here, though i"m low on the totem pole :P
you can control the actuator with just a can shield and arduino, but you'll be missing the VR sensor input in particular to sense turbine speed which is an important part of the Lilbb code
I wouldn't try too hard deconstructing the code if you can find the function methods  :o

It's not dead here just very very slow. There was a dead year, and now everyone wants a 351ve back on their vehicles and I guess I'm the last option left now :D
Waiting on manufacturers to finish the next unit run /shrug
v2.0 / Possible To Control The Actuator Motor With Just a CAN Shield & Arduino?
« Last post by samirakle on June 06, 2021, 04:20:48 PM »
I seem to be treading into a ghost forum as of right now. I probably won't get a response but if anybody sees this I'm hoping that I can be pointed in the right direction:

What I'd basically like to do is send CAN bus commands to the actuator with an Arduino and some coding. Is this possible or do I need to hook up a bunch of other hardware?

I'm thinking of just sending can bus commands through the J1939 data lines that would just command the motor the rotate in either direction at different angles/values.

I've tried to make sense of the code provided here but I'm not very code savvy. I can't seem to figure out where this function "send_turbo_position(data)" came from as I can't see where it's been defined. I'm assuming this is what stores the PGN, SPN, and data to be transmitted to the actuator?

Thanks in advance!

Add me to the list as well!
Installation / Shield build

Can anyone give me a little guidance or point me in the right direction to make a shield controller?  I have zero arduino and a little coding experience but am willing to learn. Is all I need to do is buy the parts in the wiki from mouser and follow the layout to solder? What is recommended, through hole or surface mount? I can solder

This will be going on a 93 12 valve with a 2012 he351ve. The shield will be able to control it off of shaft speed correct?  Will the exhaust brake be able to be used with an on off switch like the 6.7s? Any help is appreciated

Are you still selling the Libb 2.0, i'd really like to get one for my gas car. I tried to buy a full stand alone vgt controller but it wasn’t in stock.

I dont know emough to be fully commited. What does the stand alone need to tap  into for power? Does it tap into the pcm at all?

You just need full standalone stuff.
Power when Key on, to LBB and a relay setup 10/15A to power on with key in the engine bay for the turbo

I run a non-stock Lil'bb setup, and I did tap into the tach output wire from the PCM (quite easy to do)

You'll get a lot more tunability with the Lilbb than you do with the spring setup, as long as you still have the actuator for the turbo.

For cartridge cooling, I just tapped into the heater hose lines, you really don't need a whole lot of flow
