    Do the gt350 r's come with AB? I am looking at a 2017 or 2018. Thanks.

    2017 GT350Rs do not come from the factory with auto blip. I don't know about 2018's but I would assume that they do not either.

    Presently the AB does not work on the 2017+ Mustangs.

    I'm ready to install mine.

    Has everyone used the attaching wire clips? Any problems with connections?

    I've used the clips that came with AB and no issues to report. What model car are you installing it on?

    Am new to TMO and am in the process of installing AB on my 2016 gt350. Question ... what's the trick to removing the APP sensor from the throttle pedal assembly?

    Welcome to TMO.

    I did not remove any of the sensors. I just tapped into the wires coming off the sensors. It's a tight fit under there If you didn't remove the seat I recommend you do. Be patient and make sure you get good connections. You're going to like the AB.

    If anyone is selling one of these in good condish in the future, let me know.

    Lowest I've found is $360 which is just... too much, IMHO.

    I just bought mine and paid $375. As the old saying goes If you want to play you got to pay. I hope to install it this weekend.

    Got my auto blip installed. Actually it was pretty simple. My question is what sensor did you use on the clutch ? I did as the directions said and installed on lower. I think it should be on the upper.

    What year car do you have? I only remember one sensor on my 2016 GT350.

    Got this e-mail from autoblip today. I checked mine (2017 GT350) and it has a 5 volt reference. It was built in May (maybe June) 2017.

    Note the illustration they mention did not copy over here. The A and F pins are the two end pins on the connector.
    ---------------------------
    Hello,

    You are receiving the following email because you have inquired about the AUTO-BLiP for the 2017 GT350.


    We are finding out more and more 2017 GT350s that work with our current production AUTO-BLiP unit, that is 5v reference on the accelerator pedal.
    Unfortunately we do not have a way of knowing based on the manufacturing date of the vehicle which vehicles may have the 12v reference.

    There is a somewhat simple test that can be done to find out if your vehicle is compatible. It does require the use of a simple digital voltage meter.
    The procedure goes as follow:
    1) Disconnected the accelerator pedal connector from the pedal. This is done by gently sliding up the red locking clip on the connector. Then the connector can be remove by pressing on the release clip while at the same time gently sliding upwards the connector.
    2) Turn the ignition on, do not start the engine.
    3) Set the voltage meter to measure DC voltage. Connect the black lead of the meter to a bare metal surface under the dash (ground).
    4) Use a small paper clip or a sewing needle to reach inside the connector pins in order to measure the voltage at the specified locations (see below, pin A and F) using the red lead from the voltage meter.

    The measured voltage will be one of the following, 5v or 12v. If you measure 5v, then the standard production AUTO-BLiP will work with your 2017 GT350.
    Please let us know if you have any questions.




    P.S. We are in the process of manufacturing a limited number of units that will be compatible with vehicles that use the 12v reference voltage to the accelerator pedal for those that may have this configuration.

    That's great news. I wonder why the change from Ford?

    For those of you reading this the AUTO-BLiP is a great mod if you track your car and don't plan on going racing. It's my favorite mod on my Boss 302 and GT350.
