SMG.. paddle shift formula 1 style transmission question

I think these transmissions are neat.. however, i cant seem to find any info on porsche making one for rear wheel drive cars only(im building a 911). i know they are more complex then a regular manual trans but maybe someone on here has heard of some sort of conversion kit.. i know it would be alot of money and all but time is on my side and if it is such a thing out there i wouldnt mind saving for it.. anyone know of anything like this?

Check on Hewland transmissions...they make those things..It is not a conversion kit but a purpose designed race trans..

I do not have the link but they do have a website..

I checked with them and they have nothing for me..

But after speaking with a friend of mine that knows a little bit about transmissions we came to the conclusion that i should take a porsche auto trans and play with it. so what i have found is a paddle shift assembly for the steering wheel. about 500 bucks not too bad.

However, ive been looking for a trans control module. they make them but cant find one for a porsche, but im thinking maybe there is a piggy back or a universal control unit that i could use.. just cant find one.. or havent found one yet. anyone heard of one?

Also for it to shift faster would i have to change the torque converter? if so i dont beleive they make aftermarket for porsche.. is there a way to get it made into what i would need?
