Is the auto mate available for a 2008 NS DiD Auto?

I hope Marshall will forgive me for intruding in his thread, but he's currently working hard to figure out how to meet demand for his existing products, as well as develop products for many other popular vehicles on the market.

I've asked him the same question - NS? At present, the NS is a long way down his list, because he's not seeing sufficient demand to justify moving it up his list, above many other popular vehicles. If NS owners seriously want an auto-mate, they need to post up - and it will seriously help the cause if an Adelaide owner can volunteer a vehicle for a few days for testing.

But it's all a long shot. Auto-mate is the best product on the market, and NS owners are not the only ones looking for a solution. A lot of owners need to ask, and even if a lot do, there are no guarantees.

Thanks above guys for answering.
auto-mate for the NS hasn’t been developed, but yes, a lockup-mate is available. With the JATCO transmission in the NS you get the ability to lockup in 1st gear for better 4LLc downhill engine braking as a bonus that the ASIN transmission in the NT+ can’t do.

Mate has had the lock up mate for 18 months at least and is very happy with it.

Installed my Lock Up Mate on the Challenger today.


About 90 minutes from walking out the back door till i was back from the test drive.


Great instructions and nice and easy DIY.



My initial reaction is wow what a difference.


Cant wait to put some klms on it.


Thanks Marshall

Finally got out today to try the recently installed auto mate. Did around 200 kms and initial reaction is very impressive.
I have had a lock up kit installed for over 3 years, it was a relative basic unit compared to auto mate.
The old system worked well however engine code P2764 was a regularly thing particularly when towing. This error code could often be put down to low RPM for the gear. During cold weather low Trans temperature would easily set it of. I would leave it off until temps were above 40C.
Also I installed a set of paddles recently, and with the almost instant gear change with the paddle the lock up kit could not keep up and the code would appear.
After following the development of auto mate over the past few years, I finally bit the bullet and purchased auto mate. Last week end I removed the old system and installed auto mate.
WOW its excellent compared to the old school technology.
Marshall gets 12 out of 10 for the elimination of the 1st gear quirk. What a great innovation Have not tried it out with the van attached but initial reaction is it will certainly stop that 1st gear lunge.
My main reasons for having auto mate is to control auto trans temperatures, have the ability to lock up the torque converter and ease of operating.
Well done Marshall for an excellent product

Cheers

Terry

Hi Terry and KevsChallenger,
Well, what else can I say but ‘thanks’
No better compliment than to have someone rip out the old school tech and appreciate the new (auto-mate / lockup-mate) so much.

Feedback like yours (and likewise from so many other customers) makes all the effort worthwhile

Cheers,
Marshall
