    Slid right in. Remove the center insert by simply pulling up. Thread the wires from rear to front tucking the wires up under the left side of the console.

    45 minutes total install and calibrate time.

    Installed today, calibrated and tested on the street. Looking forward to using at an hpde. I installed in the rear console box. Tmsboss, thanks for letting me know how easy the front console comes out. Just lifts right out - wow. Hardest part was removing the electrical tape after removing the connectors. Wow they taped the wires and also taped the black protector sleeve to the wires too. Did not want to use any scissors for fear my bad eyes and poor lighting I would cut the wires. I wound up using a head lamp because those colored wires were hard to make out. Also it was a real juggling act trying to place the wire clips and clamp them with the pliers. Probably took me twice as long as everyone else and it probably would have gone faster if I removed the seat. I used a garden ground pad under my back and just slid in under the wheel.

    You'll enjoy it for HDPE.
    Going into corners is so much easier. Focus on braking and shifting. Auto-blip does the rest.

    I thought the AutoBlip TMO reviews were positive so I ordered one and installed it a couple days ago on my 2007 Saleen PJ. As per some posts, it was easier to remove the driver's seat and add some padding to the floor. Instructions were clear for install as well as calibration. The short ride I took after installation seemed to indicate that the "delay time for me was best set at minimum as I mostly use my Saleen for the track.

    I did note the the two adjustment knobs for "Duration and Delay" had no detents or clicks and it was too easy to shift the knob setting. I slipped an O ring over each knob and the knob position now has much more resistance to turning. I took the easy route and installed it in the console storage box. The O rings were 6mm ID and 2.5mm thick.

    Put me down on the list of "haves". Broke my foot three time racing motorcycles and I heel/toe 'backward' from most. So Darrell Anderson, AV8 Supercars, suggested I try the Auto Blip. I only got to drive with it one time before the winter from hell hit. It works. However I, you, will have to get used to depressing the clutch pedal all the way down in order to engage the blip throttle response of the unit. I'm used to pushing the clutch in just past the friction point and then matching revs with the speed of the car. Point being that the jury is still out. I'll let ya all know after I've got 10 track days on it. On corners where one is 'busy' I can see that the Auto Blip would be advantageous keeping focus on one less thing. Cliff

    Sorry to revive an old thread but I just installed mine on a 2007 Mustang GT. Double checked all connections and followed the calibration instructions. The auto-blip works once after turning car on then it does nothing. Also, if you press the clutch pedal twice without releasing brake pedal a wrench pops up on screen. Forced idle error.

    I think there must be an error somewhere in the instructions or a missing step. Once I finish the calibration procedure the blip led blinks constantly. At that point do I press power again or shut down the ignition? Also, the kit came with extra black and white wires, which I did not use and the instruction pdf says to use pins 2 and 5 but has 2,5 and 8 circled.

    To anyone who could get it working, am I missing something? Which pins did you use for the throttle? The leds light up correctly when I press the pedals, even the blip blinks when I engage the clutch while pressing the brake pedal but it does not actually blip it (other than right after turning the car on as I said before).

    @flash_xx I'd contact Andres @AUTO-BLiP directly and see if there are any issues with the 2007 cars. Go to their website and you'll find his contact info there.

    Finally got mine calibrated and was feeling comfortable enough with the car to screw around with it at the track. I don't know why I waited so long to just turn it on and go for it. This little box is magical. Great drivability mod on track, makes one less thing to worry about and let you focus on other things, and you really look like you know what you are doing, nice bonus! ha ha

    I remember seeing a thread somewhere about what settings guys were using.
    Can't remember if it was here or on FB....?

    Did you buy an AB? Start in the middle and adjust from there. Here's my current settings.

    Yes, remember I excused myself from the give away so that the injured veteran could win?
    I was hoping to start a trend and everybody would yield to the veteran, but noooo...
