There shouldn't be any problems doing this Neil. Be aware its not really ideal to pulse with an auto transmission just because an ideal pulse is high engine load and low rpms. An auto trans doesn't allow both of these conditions, so you'll have to balance them. Also, when shifting back into drive, it will probably be necessary to try and rev match the engine so you don't get a jerk when the transmission engages.
