Default 5AT Shift Direction (Triptronic)

ok so everysince I got the max everytime I switch over to manual mode i always kept wanting to go down to shift up and go up to downshift only because it was a natural feeling. Well sometime ago I found a harness that did this for like 50-60 bucks, then someone on the board said all I had to do was switch some wires around but wasnt specific on which wires. So as time went on I searched and searched and came across the G35 board where someone had done a simple simple write up wit PICS!!! So today during lunch i looked it up and did this mod and took me all of 5 mins!!!! so here is the link to the mod. again guys this is mad easy and feels more natural now, this is how the car shoulda came. One more thing although the car is a Jap spec G35 the 2 wire colors are still the same DARK GREEN AND LIGHT GREY. If any question feel free to ask.

DIY: 5AT tiptronic change of direction
i came across this thread a while ago: http://g35driver.com/forums/engine-d...ction-mod.html

and it gave me the urge to have a turn myself. unfortunately getting to the said plug and changing the pins isn't exactly straightforward..

so i decided on something a little easier with the same result.

just to remind everyone, this will make it:
PULL BACK = next gear
PUSH FORWARD = previous gear

and the best part?
takes 15mins or less, uses $2 worth of connectors, and is totally reversible in a matter of seconds!

tools needed:
- side cutters
- plyers
- 2*blade connectors - female
- 2*blade connectors - male
- electrical tape

time needed:
15mins

picture 1:
pull the centre part of your dash off using info on these forums
you will see a few wires which run around behind the gear selector and these are involved in the tiptronic switching
locate the 2 wires which send the signal back to the ECU when the gear has been manually chagned
the colours you are looking for are DARK GREEN and LIGHT GREY
note that there is also a light green wire so don't get confused

picture 2:
cut these 2 wires and strip all 4 free ends

picture 3:
attach the male and female ends of the blade connectors using the pliers to hold the wires in place. you could probablhy solder them if you could be bothered

picture 4:
connect the wires
the key here is that you want to swap the wires around so that the grey is now connecting with the green for both wires
note that as you have used blade connectors, it is very easy to simply pull out the connector and put the configuration back to normal if you ever want to!

picture 5:
usign electrical tape, cover the exposed metal of the connectors and put the wires back into their normal position.
you can hardly notice that anything is done!
put your trim back in place

test drive:
amazing, simply amazing. its stuipd that it wasn't this way to start with.

summary:
this is a DIY that costs the price of a box of connectors and takes about 15mins to do. not only that, but it is completely reversible in the event that you change your mind!

i'm going to get some custom stickers made up that have a " + " and " - " sign on them for completeness. they will be black like the P-R-N-D indicator on the other side of the shifter

enjoy!

Nah i think it means instead of pushing the gear stick upwards to shift up, you push the stick down to shift up..
