    LX Anyone simultaneously run a MTCM and Tranzformer?

    Hey,
    I'm not even sure if these two mods are even talked about anymore, I haven't been on the forums all that much in the past few years.
    I've had a tranzformer installed for the past 6 or 7 years and I love it for its line lock features. Hate it for the fact it can't hold gears in auto stick, it'll always upshift for you.
    That's why I just purchased a MTCM so I have full control over what gear I'm in. I hate the auto upshift feature of a stock TCM.
    Anyone ever run both? I dont want the auto upshift feature and I don't want to loose my line lock feature either.
    I've heard lots of stories about bricking MTCM's and I want no part of that.
    Thanks all!

    I have neither and my car holds my gear without auto upshift. I have HP tuners so maybe that's an option in there

    I only have the Tranzformer and Blue Tops in my NAG1, but the auto upshift feature can be adjusted according to RPM - was it not enough? I haven't changed settings in years so I don't recall what it maxed out at or if it could accommodate valve bodies/tunes with raised RPM limits. Maybe contact ZAuto to see if he can send an update with the option to disable it completely?

    From all the research I've done over the past few years you can't stop the stock TCM from auto upshifting. I'm tuned with HP as well, I seem to remember there even being an option to disable auto upshift with HP but it doesn't do anything.
    Just to make sure we're all on the same page here, what I mean by auto upshift is the vehicle won't let you bounce off what ever rpm you set your Rev limiter at.

    So theoretically, you would be able to put the car in second gear, floor it, and watch the vehicle bounce off your Rev limiter and at no point it would shift to third for you?

    With my Diablosport Predator I can turn off auto upshift.

    Weird. Maybe this was just a problem I was having with my TCM. The vehicle is an old police charger, I wouldn't have thought the TCM would have been different but there are so many strange quirks with the car. Doing that AMG paddle shifter mod was next to impossible.
    I've had a couple different shops and some buddies try and disable my auto upshift using diablo years ago and HP in the past few years.
    Wellllll if this MTCM doesn't work, the vehicles up for grabs, first 6 pack takes er.
    Thanks for the info, I suppose I should have no fears running the Tranzformer with the MTCN
