Smart to electric

Hey all,
New here.
I'm in the process of converting my ForTwo to electric for a bit of fun.

Does anyone have a technical manual for the 450? I haven't been able to find one for the ForTwo.

I am currently in the process of identifying the pinout in the ECU. I am starting from the evolution page, adding details as i find them.
Will link to google sheet when I have the post count

I want to keep the gearbox, does anyone know how the gearbox training works?
Or what values from the gear sensor relate to each gear?

buy whole smart ed drivetrain, have seen them as low as $900, engine gearbox much better than 450 gears.
I have a factory smart ed, you can get them cheaper than your conversion will cost

even with shipping still cheaper, battery could cost more than car, and still need to ship it, container a whole car.
