OJ,
I have two products.
Lockup-mate just does the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) locking automatically.
Auto-mate will do TCC lockup AND trans shift points, so we can essentially reprogram the transmission to our liking. Thatís the plan anyway.

Me third as I have subscribed to M & Ms website and been in touch with Marshall who has informed me of the benefits of fitting one of their units to my PB 4x2.

Default Challenger lockup-mate is coming along well

Hi Guys,
I've had OJs car for couple of weeks and now have a version of the torque converter lockup kit working (lockup-mate).
Amazing results.
I've started a new thread here.

Given the well known temp control issues with the transmission, has anyone investigated upgraded transmission coolers? I'm looking at doing a cooler upgrade in the near future, along with the automate and maybe even the valvebody upgrade.

Yes many years ago "beagle 1" fitted a second ATF cooler and it did reduce his ATF temperatures but it did not solve the limp modes. Problem is the Challenger auto does not go into limp mode due to high ATF temps until the ATF reaches 135C, the real cause is the TC slip timeout limp mode which detects a difference between the input and output shaft speeds of the auto and if this difference is too much for a given time then the transmission goes into limp mode without warning. It is a common misbielf that it is ATF temperature related and it is not! The highest my ATF temp has ever been was 116C whilst doing heavy tow tests up long sustained hills with 40C ambient temperatures and my ATF temps are always lower and recover quicker than the Gen 4 Pajero guys I travel with regularly.

There has been a lot of work, testing and discussion on the Challengers auto over the last few years, for so background if here is a link to the thread,
https://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum...ad.php?t=36892

I already have the proposed changes in the up and down shift points and TC locked and unlocked patterns ready to trial in the Auto-Mate with MM4x4 but the first step has been to fit a Prototype Lockup-Mate to see if the proposed parameters are close to where we think they should be. We most likely have 3 to 6 months of trials before Auto-Mate is on the market. Also work has started on Traction-Mate which will be a plug & play module that increases the response time of the traction control system when off road as the current TC is way too slow to activate when doing slow low range work.

I suggest you wait until Auto-Mate is availble and fit this before deciding if the investment in an additional ATF cooler and HD valve body is warranted.

OJ.
