Is this the definitive A650e manual swap wiring solution?

    Ok. This thread popped up on ClubLexus. Credit to maxEX84. It appears to deal with the subject of tricking the ECU to think everything is OK when doing an A650e-to-manual swap.

    The wiring issue was one of the biggest things I needed to see a solution for before I considered a manual swap. I wanted to post this solution here and see what y'all experts say because the thread hasn't received any attention on CL. I figure if it's the answer to the wiring conundrum then it might have received a little more recognition by now.

    If that's all it takes to make the ECU chill out, then it's no problem at all.

    It's definitely not enough
    Both speed sensor should be properly emulated too, otherwise power limit will occur
    I have hardware solution

    Makes sense. I searched further on the issue, someone said that the power limit is bypassed if the gear selector plug is jumped across the "neutral" pins so the ECU thinks it's in neutral. Feasible?

    What is your hardware solution?
