I've got throttle by wire on my 2007 TC.

Is there a way to rev the motor from the engine bay?
Or, can a program like Forscan make the motor rev?

One reason I would like to do that is so I could watch my A/C pressures easier at 1500 rpm.

thanks

There's no real way under the hood other than manually moving the throttle plate. That would be risky with the car on as you risk damaging the motor and gearing on the tbw. It would definitely be possible to operate the throttle by computer. The thing is whether forscan could or something more along the lines of a dealer level scanner was needed.

Thanks. I didn't think there would be an easy way.

I found a Forscan ACP_PRESS PID.

I'm going to see how that corresponds to my high pressure a/c gauge.

If it does match then at least I can easily tell high pressure from inside the car.

Like the other poster said don't manually move the throttle position as that can cause damage to the motor.

Also, you don't want your fingers near any of that throttle body because it can move on it's own at no warning and has enough power to severely damage your fingers. From what I understand drive by wire has ice breaking strategies so sometimes it just moves on it's own.
