ST185 DBW Adapter

Hey all, I made this DBW pedal adapter for my 185 awhile ago and someone recently asked me for the 3D print file. I've open sourced it all and it's available on github:


As-is, no warranty, liability is on you.
I've been using it for two years without isse.

This is great! I fabricated one out of thicker aluminium sheet and used a Mazda CX-7 pedal which I sourced from a junkyard because the angle of the pedal fitted the ST205 nicely.

It's certainly weird to get the angle of the dangle right on the pedal. I used some basic 3D scanning and went through about 5 revisions to end up at this design. Could certainly always be better if someone with actual Mech-E skills wants to change it up a bit!

Hi, I'm finally getting around to doing the wiring for my new motor. I hope to install it over the next few weeks. Mind if I ask if either of you changed the 12v circuit that feeds the ECU? Looking at the documentation for my EMS, they require the EMS powering the DBW throttle. I'm having a hard time finding the actual amperage draw for a Toyota DBW throttle body, but I am surprised that it's 5v and not 12. I wonder if the factory 12v wires from the ignition switch that powers the ECU is enough or if I need to run a new circuit/relay/etc.
