Great, that's easy, thanks.

BTW, for those intending to install, a tip. Whilst its possible to remove the centre console with the gear selector in park, its easier if it's in neutral. However, to get it out of park, the engine has to be on. So its best to remember to move the lever to neutral before you disconnect the battery and do the first stage of the install (the ECU bit).

Another tip is once the console is removed, immediately refit the gear knob as this protects the selector plunger shaft that is made of brittle plastic and can be easily broken off.

Sorry Dicko, I have had my console out dozens of times when working with Marshall on both Lockup and Auto Mate and I had never had an issue with leaving the gear selector in N and the gear knob off. However after a few people accidentally broke the selector pin off, I started to refit the gear knob as a precaution. It also enables you to more the gear selector into Drive and across to Sports shift which gives you a bit more room to work with when disconnecting and reconnecting the wiring loom plug.

OJ.

I only managed to read about 5 pages, speed read another 3 and gave up after that. Felt my head imploding. Had to release the stress by jumping on to CA ANZ website and read about all those wonderful new accounting standards that are mandatory for reporting periods beginning 1 Jan 2019

Good idea. I'll add it to the installation manual.

M and M, have you thought of making an insert piece to fit between the plug and ECU rather than having to cut and solder the wires? Would this make the unit much more expensive or is it technically difficult to do? It would make installation much easier.

Maybe not more torque than a manual but perhaps better spread. And definitely not better for towing unless TC is locked up.

I suppose better for towing could be the lack of manual clutch which IS better for getting things off the mark vs a manual / slipping the clutch etc.



Once up to speed no.

Yes, obviously looked into it. Haven't been able to source the required parts, and the labour to make it is high. I'd like one day to see if it can be achieved though.
