I have my vvl cam solenoids wired together as many other people on here have but was wondering could someone explain how i would go about wiring them to a switch inside the car so i can turn the single stage vvl on and off?

Cheers,
Jon.

You mean by running a switch in the cabin you would just have a 12v switch that runs to you two solinoids...

This would be hard to tune as the switching point will change all the time!

Lol, I could only imagine having to flick the switch on at 5k, shift turn off switch, till 5k, flick on, shift...ect. Wouldn't be getting anywhere fast in my opinion bud. But it can be done.

Ive seen them use them in races with a steering wheel button to enguage the high cam! as soon as your hand goes to shift gear your hands come off the button. so it's more selective power!

A proper switching unit would be better in every way though!...

No what i want is to be able to activate both cams together by using the switch but be able to turn it off and have the vvl operate as normal i.e. intake cam at 5800rpm and exhaust cam at 6500rpm.

Could someone make a quick diagram for me
A pictures worth.... etc...

Cheers so far fellas

One single 12V dual plane switch and two diodes would sort it out for you.

If you want to manually activate the cam switches, all you need to do is splice in an earth feed inbetween the cams switches and ECU.
Best option to protect the ecu would be to use an on-off-on switch, that way you can either have the cams activated via the ecu, have them deactivate, or fully activated...
