Improve CVT Response

Gents, I stumbled upon this on another site. It is a method to fix flat spots in the DBW system that these use and it of course helps somewhat to fix CVT response. I take no credit for this, as it was reposted by a member of the other site.
1-ignition to RUN but do not start
2-wait until all the lights go out
3-slowly depress the gas peddle to the floor (take at least 15 seconds to gradually push it to the floor, do not waver as you push)
4-slowly release gas peddle to full up (again, take at least 15 seconds to gradually let it back up, do not waver as you let up)
5-ignition to off
6-restart and check for difference in response and linearity. (Letting it sit for up to 1 hour before doing this step may help)
Let me know if this helps any of you out.
