Default Auto- Mate for PB/PC Challenger.

My Challenger has just started a R&D 2 week holiday at MM4x4 for the install and testing of Auto-Mate. Looking forward to getting it back as a test drive in MM's NX Pajero with Auto-Mate was very impressive.

OJ.

It surprises me how you wouldn't recommend a chip as a modification but you would this

locking the gear box out of its normal characteristics could be asking for trouble IMO

would be interesting what the long term affects would be.

I wouldn't characterise it as that.

Auto-mate uses the sport mode input to request a gear that will allow the torque converter to remain locked. It requests gear changes, but ultimately the factory programming decides whether or not to make the change, and will over-ride to down change gears if it feels it should.

Long term effect? Yes, it will keep the torque converter locked more. Will that have a material effect on clutches and brakes in the transmission? Only time will tell.

Agree. Had a long (3 hour haul) up a 4wd trail towing my camper. The lockup kit was worth its weight in gold. Just need to get the 2nd gear issue sorted when available.

I hope this report helps you save a few bucks on diesel henceforth by understanding that the main ingredient, by volume, in premium diesel is in fact marketing bullshit.

time will tell,
it would be the internals of the box that would worry me more than the small fuel savings on the minimal times it would be used

at least with my chip I decide what power to feed it and to date its the best mod I done with enormous power gains and fuel economy.
