THIS PRODUCT IS FOR MANUAL GAS POWERED VEHICLES ONLY!
What is the WOT Box?
The WOT Box is an electronic device that makes WOT shifting easy by reducing engine power for a very short timed period while you shift. It allows the transmission synchros to mesh easily, reducing the chance of missing a gear and damaging the transmission. If the input shaft on a manual transmission is not allowed to slow down enough it will lock you out of gear time after time. N2MB has developed a solution to the problem by controlling the ignition at the shift point to ease the transition from one gear to another.
What is WOT Shifting?
WOT shifting is accomplished by holding the gas pedal to the floor and never “lifting” off the gas during the shift. The problem with doing so is when the clutch pedal is depressed, engine RPMs flare up and a brief amount of time is required for the transmission input shaft to slow down.
During a WOT shift, your engine is still producing peak power through the shift. With the clutch released, the engine revs up. This increase in RPMs and the full output power of the engine makes it very difficult for the transmission synchros to engage.
How does the WOT Box make WOT Shifting easy?
Your N2MB WOT Box momentarily disrupts the engine power long enough for you to make an effortless, fast WOT shift.
The major benefits are:
Reduced chance of missing a gear
More consistent, effortless shifts
Less wear on the transmission
Reduced chance of major transmission damage
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!
Does the WOT Box affect normal driving?
No. The WOT Box will only activate when you are WOT Shifting. Normal shifts will be ignored and continue to work just as you expect.
Will I be able to program it or do I need an engineering degree?
The WOT Box is simple to program with only one button and one LED.
Does the WOT Box work on a car that has the X brand ignition?
Yes. It will work on any ignition setup that has a common positive lead for all of the ignition coils.
What is involved in hooking it up?
Installation will only involve hooking up a few wires. Full instructions are available.
Do I need a clutch switch?
You don’t! Most recent cars have the clutch up switch already built in. If you have cruise control, you likely already have the switch you need. Contact us if you have questions.
What’s that serial port on the side of the box for?
N2MB is currently developing a slick windows interface for the WOT Box. With it, you’ll be able to download a history of your previous 200 WOT shifts, get your average shift time and program the exact ignition kill time you want.
How big is it?
It’s small enough that you will be able to hide it up in your dash. The exterior dimensions are 3.8″ x 1.6″ x 0.8″
