A343F tiptronic / shifter swap. KZJ78 1KZT

Hi all
Been playing in the garage again this time with the shifter.
I have no TCU as went manual pump a long time ago.
Stumbled across a TCU in aussie and got one shipped over.
With the guy who made it we altered the program to use with my setup.
I had to put a new TPS unit onto my throttle linkages.
Also play with the speed sensor.
Had some big issues with this as the factory unit in my truck is a reed switch and the TCU software didn't like it (switch bounce)
Ended up swapping the reed switch for a Magnetic hall effect switch. Had to strip speedo apart and remove reed and graft in new unit.
Then rather than having switches to go up and down thru the gears, I adapted a Subaru Legacy sports shifter so I can used its tiptronic feature.
Here a a few pics of the install.
They dont do it justice... Lots of trial and errors...
Machining, welding, grinding and rewelding hhahah
