    300s steering wheel

    So does anyone know if it's possible to do a steering wheel swap and ecu from a 300s to have a working, manually shift able transmission? Since our transmission is drive by wire or whatever it's called I would love to do this if possible. Any info would be appreciated, I have researched it and found nothing to date. Thx.

    I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you meaning shifting manually with paddle shifters? If that's your question, then yes. That's possible. Paddle shifters have been added to a few 1st gens and the process should be the same. I wouldn't consider it a DIY project, but if you're mechanical and have the means, go knutz. If you mean a true manual gear box, then I'm confused about the whole steering wheel portion. That's POSSIBLE as well as it's been also done in 1st gen land. However, the rotary kranster is a different beast all together than the older slushboxes. However, much like the older gens, FCA makes a manual for our platform, in Challenger form, so it's definitely possible. I just don't think anyone has done it.

    So, whatever your question is, yes it's possible. However, you'll probably be jumping in feet first to accomplish it as no one has (knowingly) done it. The paddle shifts should be easy enough though. I can tell you that'll involve a reflash of the ecu.

    It can be done. Just need a way to activate the paddles and sport mode (I think the S's get that). Currently, the TaZer by Z Automotive will allow you to activate these features.

    Wouldn't be worth the time or money IMO. I have them on my S and rarely use them. I prefer a stick shift which is what my 2 previous cars were. This car however just feels better as an auto.

    See, and I'm completely opposite. I use my paddles all the time and it's one of my favorite additions to my car.

    They do come In handy for traffic oddly enough. I use them to hold a gear so its not constantly hunting for the highest possible gear as it does.
