RE: [DML] Re: Automatic transmission - how to remove computer



Dave, If they have to take the old one out then I can repair and up grade
the original for $150.00 dollars. 
Have done it over 50+ times and not one failure in 6+ years.

Subject: [DML] Re: Automatic transmission - how to remove computer

Some potential for misunderstanding here that should be clarified. 
There are two computer governor solutions now on the market. In both cases a
"core" is used, nobody is selling a completely new computer governor unit.  

Both involve using the original computer governor housing, internal sensor,
and wiring. One adds an External Box and one replaces the OE circuits that
have failed. 

The External Box solution (that we don't sell) involves cutting into the
original wiring and adding a separate box of electronics that needs to be
mounted on the wall of the engine compartment. The quality of the
installation depends on the installer, and some people find it difficult.
The installer needs to cut, terminate, and seal  wiring that lives in a
pretty hostile environment. It is certainly not "plug and play". The
original circuit boards are left in place inside the unit on the side of the
transmission (bypassed). 

The upgrade that we (and DMCH etc.) sell completely replaces the internal
electronics of the original governor with a new microcontroller circuit that
fits in the original location inside the housing on the transmission. The
origial electronics are not being rebuilt, they are removed and replaced
with new components. There is no wiring for the installer to  cut and splice
and nothing looks different from OE when completed. No extra box to hang in
the engine compartment. It is honestly probably a bit more difficult to
field-install as the installer will have to route wiring up against the body
under the car in the original location, and will have to at least drain and
refill the transmission. 

We've been selling and installing them for a couple of years now with zero
failures. You do have to send in the entire unit for the upgrade, or it can
be done on an advance core exchange basis. It can also be done on your car
in one of our shops, without draining the trans although we recommend having
it serviced at the same time.

simple things. Leave people a way to fu-k things up and do not be surprised
when it happens! You also have to consider that some people are color-blind
and will mess up the wires just because of that. Others won't have the
proper tools or materials and screw it up. You have to be able to cater to
the "lowest common denominator". It is also hard to stand behind your
products when you cannot know for sure if it was installed properly.
Especially electrical items.
