Here is how to disable Assist/Regen when you don't need it, such as when you are trying so keep from depleting the battery charge on long hills, or when you don't want background charging, or when you are going downhill and don't want to regen.

Take the 2 wires from the clutch pedal, run them thru a toggle switch and you're done, now anytime you don't want to use assist or regen, just flip the switch and IMA is disabled. :idea:

I was wondering if it could be done without the BCM Interceptor. I haven't heard mention that the MCM or BCM was different between standard shift and CVT models.

But having the BCM Interceptor seems to be pretty straight forward.
