Anyone try this steering wheel?

Discussion on body issues/mods, appearance, interior/trim, and detailing (i.e. how to keep your car looking showroom new, or a reasonable facsimile thereof...).

Overall you don’t need the shift box if you have a wheel with paddle shifters. The box is replicating that circuit. If you have paddle you just have to link them with the correspond wiring plug and pin. There are discussion about it on the forum.

On the 14-17 you do need to modify the menu in HP tuners to enable paddle shifting.

I have seen the discussions just nothing definitive about how to wire it.

I saw you posted in the paddle shifter write up, so they wiring for the 14-17 is there.

From my understanding the caprice doesn’t have the wire from the steering wheel plug to the correct body plug, so that has to be wired and pinned per that specification in the paddle shifter write up.

I’m not expert on this, but I’ve had a discussion with the guy who makes the boxes and this was his feedback
