From what I have read on other posts about paddle or TUTD mods on 9C1 models, the gear selection is not shown on the DIC, like the 9C3’s do. Guess there is programming that would have to be done on the instrument cluster.

Next question, after the mod, will the DOD be locked out, when shifting with paddles or TUTD buttons. I have a 13 9C3 that will turn off the DOD off while the shifter is moved to the right and you are using the manual mode. I like the ability to turn off the DOD while on long highway trips. If you want to pass, you just have to remember to downshift. Does anyone know if that is programming in the BCM, TCM or the ECM or all of them. I have several stock 9C1’s that it would nice to mod if the DOD cut-out feature would be actives with the mod.

Yes. It does turn off the DOD cutout when the shift box is added. The shift box essentially acts as the 9C3 shifter and the BCM doesn't know the difference. The dash cluster, however does not change to reflect which gear you're in on a 9C1. I assume that Chris White might be able to change that. I have several shift boxes available. Let me know if you'd be interested. williamatolbert@gmail.com

Thank for the info on the DOD disabling question.

I think this is the same guy is claims he has a patent on this on FB.

But when you do a patent search on his name no patent comes up and he refuses to post the patent number.

Yes it's the same person. He's admitted that what I posted is not infringing on his alleged patent on FB, although he still refuses to provide details that would make finding and verifying the patent extremely simple. Was hoping he'd actually send the cease and desist - it would have contained the patent number, and I could probably delete this thread and just replace it with a link to his patent filing and everyone would have the exact same info.

He's claiming a fire risk which is serious but I just don't see how. Under-sized/poorly spec'd resistors during development could certainly cause a problem. But what I showed looks fine to me (obviously or I wouldn't have posted it or built it). It's still installed in my car and I'm not particularly concerned about it. I should have some time this weekend to take it back apart and take some current readings to prove I'm not crazy (or that I am) but until then I'll continue enjoying my paddle shift caprice.

Does anybody know if I can apply this to a 2014 with an ss sedan shifter installed? Less interested in paddles and more just to get my shifter tap shift to work.

Yes, I have the SS floor shifter tap up/tap down functioning in my 2016 Caprice. No need to add anything, just have to wire up the floor shifter to the BCM and enable TUTD in HP Tuners. Lookup the pinouts for the SS floor shifter connector and the SS BCM. I made a harness to connect mine. I also have the SS IPC, when in manual mode it shows M1,M2,M3 etc. . . Some day, I'll run the wire to the clockspring so the paddles in my SS wheel function as well.

Here's a screenshot of TUTD settings in HP Tuners under Transmission. Green is what I had to enable. You might want to adjust other related settings like the Tap Up / Tap Down shift scheduling.

Does anyone have a drawing of this with the ss steering wheel that has paddles?

i think that is for the button box

the 14-17 caprice uses the same clock spring as the SS , so once the steering wheel is swapped , you need to add a wire from the body side of the clock spring to the bcm , then having he tune changed for the trans to accept the paddle shift
