Re: Overland 5.7 feels very sluggish...
So this is interesting. Just about everything here being described is exactly what i'm faced with, and it's ridiculously annoying. Has anyone found any fixes yet? So I wanted to throw out a few observations i have as well.
First, for my 11 WK2 Hemi, the poor performance definitely seems to be far more noticeable with higher outside temperatures. it's been this way since i bought, and it's annoying. Now that's normal, i mean its well known that colder air has a higher O2 density, so engines usually run a little better, but this is sad.
Second, it's almost like clock work. Just about anytime my tach is in the green section, power is pretty weak. Almost instantly when i'm out the green (around 2500RPM i believe) power increases dramatically.
Using AC definitely affects power as well. Which when you consider the engine is 350+ HP, AC shouldn't cause that much of a torque loss.
Hammering the throttle reduces power, vs. slow throttle pressure. This makes no sense, I can hammer the throttle on my Subaru with great power, I can do the same in a BMW X5, Toyota Tundra, etc. Why on the Jeep do i get less power/torque.
Lastly, I've tried even the Interceptor system but still, the power is weak! Turning on Tow/Haul mode, and Switching the select-trac to Sport helps, but not much.
Any help would be appreciated.
