Hope this helps!
Eric beat me to it.
The supporting engineering dept. just provide the following and I believe work is being done to incorporate it into the install documentation.

Scott and Eric thanks for the info, exactly what I was looking for. I had figured out the main motor wires but was unsure which wires were what for the pot. I'm glad Vans came out with this new motor, I was going to install the ph aviation one but having the mount already redesigned is easier.

Anyone know if there are any plans for updated brackets to accept this motor in the -14?

Default Does retrofit kit come with the flap motor?

Or is it a separate item that I need to order? Would like to replace the old style.

Thanks.

Thanks Dad.

But does the new flap motor come with the retrofit kit or is the retro kit something additional I need to get?
