Anyways, this is just an advice to take a look at it too.

Whats the chances we could use the arduino programing for the PIC18F2431?

Most of this stuff is old though (for one I don't have a parallel port anymore) and probably won't support your 18F2431

I had similar but low power controller done a few years ago and tested it with small motor from printer. Thanks to this theme I know now why it didn't start the motor itself.
I scanned the thread and could find no data on power output of your controller. Could you provide the power levels your are using on your controller? I am planning something around 5kw. Thanks for any info.
