Maybe you could use the motor valve from VAG?
It is a valve with electric motor and a position potentiometer.
It can run against the stop without harm, and runs quite slowly
so you could use just the activation time as a measure for how
much you want to open it. I would not be surprised if it's the
same valve you have there, just with the motor added.

What's the I-car content in this? Well this valve is also used
in the BiTurbo with computerized aircon. :-)
