As for lag is it tremendously reduced (especially with the HOT tune) and you will take off much faster!
Okay I tried this today whenever I drove. I only pressed it once because I realized that partially off turns off the throttle management and full off turns off both throttle management and braking. So no reason to turn fully off, plus it switches to partially off at a certain speed no matter what. Anyways, I did seem to have less hesitation! I hope it's not in my head so try it out and let me know what you think. I'm going to keep pressing is to verify. I did notice a little bit still when slowing down to ~3 MPH and then getting on the throttle again but it seemed way less. I'm gonna try and find a parking lot this weekend and test between on and off.

Edit: Partially off doesn't completely eliminate throttle management, but reduces it. This may be why I still noticed some hesitation when slowing down and then accelerating again. When I get off the Interstate tomorrow, I'll turn ESP fully off and see if I notice anything different because fully off does completely deactivate the system.

Edit 2: Ah nevermind again! I just read that low speed TC is always active, no matter the mode it's in. Also this statement confuses me: "When 4x4 vehicles exceed 40 miles per hour, ESP automatically switches from Fully OFF to Partially-OFF. In 4x4 vehicles, added safety is achieved by having all of ESP’s features active above 40 mph. This is not done in SRT vehicles because these vehicles are optimized for higher rates of speeds" (wkjeeps.com). So does it switch to partially off or fully on when exceeding 40 MPH?

I notice this too. Is there a trick to this? Feel like I need to learn how to drive it all over again haha. It is bit strange when I am trying to drive slowly in a residential area with lots of stop signs and the engine is near 3k. Love the tune though!

Do you have an audio or video clip? How does it sound and how much did it cost you, if you don't mind me asking?

Sounds nice! I noticed a bit more drone around 2500 RPM since removing the DPF. I still have the muffler in place. Try cruising at 2500 RPM and report back.

If I could do it again I will probably go with the F316L (M14x1.5) since it has a 90deg nipple. Which I think is better for our application but didn’t realize they offered until now.
I bought mine at this site

http://www.qwikvalve.com/

The model I ordered was an "F316L"

When I put in my jeep details, three models came up. I chose the newest one that has the 90 degree bend thal allows the nipple to go straight down.

Don't remember the model number, But there are pictures so the choice is easy.

I find that if I just toe-in a bit more on the pedal to "punch" it to the next gear then back off the same amount, I can make it shift as smoothly as it did when running the Eco tune.

This morning I averaged about 45MPH driving to work and achieved 27MPG according to Torque. If that is accurate, then I am getting the same economy from the Hot tune as I did with the Eco tune.

Downshift a gear to hold around 2500 rpm and see how it sounds. Turn down the radio and close the windows of course LOL!
