Before you keep on reading i would like to mention that the wot box has solved my scratching/missing gears! freaking amazing!


Description


The WOT Box adds two major features to any car. They are No-lift shifting and 2-step launch control. Both of these features are completely user-programmable using the WOT Box Graphical User Interface.

The No-Lift Shift feature makes no-lift shifting easy by cutting your engine's ignition for a very short period while you no-lift shift. No-lift shifting is keeping the gas down through the shifft. The ignition cut allows the synchros in your transmission to mesh easily, reducing the chance of missing a gear and damaging your transmission. Keeping your foot down through the shift also allows you to hold boost through the shift, thereby significantly improving your E.T.
The major benefits are:


  • Lower ETs
  • Reduced chance of missing a gear
  • More consistent, effortless shifts
  • Reduced wear on the transmission
  • Reduced chance of major transmission damage
The 2-Step Launch Control modulates the ignition by cutting power to individual ignition coils to hold the RPM you want to launch at. The turbo will spool up while you do this. You can use this feature for a more consistent and more powerful launch in boost!

ok guys what you want to do first is print out the ecm terminal page on Kia Global Information System (KGIS) it will look something like this

pin/color/AWG/Name/description
1/yellow/18 /rpm /connect to fuel injector drive signal or ignition control signal.
2/black/18 /ground/connect to chassis ground
3/black/16 /power out/connect to ignition coil power wire going towards the ignition
4/blue/18 /APP /connect to the accelerator pedal position sensor pr tps
5/green/18 /clutch/connect to clutch pedal position switch
6/red /16power in /connect to ignition coil power wire going away from the ignition coils.

The big plug is label as K and the little plug is label as A.
1) yellow wire will be connected to K25 which will be the Injector (Cylinder #1) control output
2)black is grounded
3)will explain in a few
4)blue wire will be connected to k82 which will be the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) 1 signal input.
5)green wire will be connected to A43 which is the Clutch Switch signal input.
6)will explain in a few

all you should have now is a black with red wire (power out) and a red wire(power in) now what im about to show you is not an actual picture of my car but its the same process that you need to do.

power out wire goes wired up with all 4 wires from the coils
power in wire goes wired up to all 4 wires at the harness.
and you are ready to go! download the drivers for your plug here ----> wotbox - www2

now to program the wot box interface. put the key on the ignition with your dash light on car not turned on!select com port and read the wot box.change your rpm source to ignition. make sure the numbers of cylinders are correct. now on the launch control box i have tps threshold checked and everything else unchecked. on top of launch control you should see rpm that's were you will input what rpm you want to hold at launch. on global settings you want to check clutch inverted. on the no lift shift box i set mines too 125ms works good for me. once you are done just write to wot box and you are all set to try it out. **NOTE** these are my settings you can always toy around to find what you are more comfortable with. also refer to www2 for troubleshooting tips if i cant get to you.

good write up. i took some pics of my wiring harness. i did not have to cut a single factory wire. Instead of soldering into the coils wiring harness i used a fuse bypass and wired the black and red to the fuse the fuse you see holding the wires in is a blown fuse. Also i have a BOOMSLANG harness that i wire all my aftermarket components into so i didn't have to cut the original. . that way i can always go back to stock.
Also attached is the setting that worked for me.
