Hi Im completely new to arduino and programming in general but hope to glean some useful knowledge from this forum. Id like to inquire to see if my idea is actually possible. I was thinking of a using a linear actuator to control turbo boost on my car, could I build a program that opens up a flap on the turbo to control boost by gear and such using arduino and a small linear actuator on the flap itself?
I was thinking of using a longer arm and mount the actuator itself away from heat. Also I would like to be able to do boost control by gear, would I be able to do this using arduino? If so, wheres the best place for me to start, and are there any helpful books or threads that I could focus on?
Please excuse my lack of knowledge, Im going to be scouring the internet and local library for more info on arduino but Id love to get some help from the community.
