Gears

Is there any word out there about the possibilty of regearing the OD so MDS can actually work more frequently instead of flipping back and forth on slight inclines?

Re: Gears

Once a Tuner comes out for your WK2, it will be a lot better. You can even deactivate the MDS once a Tuner becomes available.

Re: Gears

I am a fan of the mds because my commute to work is a lot of highway (50mi) 1 way right now. So you think the tuner will. have MDS adjustments or just an on off?

Re: Gears

I still think even with a tuner, despite the power being better, a different OD gear would yield significantly better performance out of the MDS system when cruising. The timing is good on the MDS and I wouldn't want to alter in and cause less response or more doggy feeling out of it. I just want to make its life easier for my long daily commute. I know its a gas slut V8 and I didn't buy the car to get any major increase in MPG from my loaded JK, but having MDS work is a really nice feature to have for us long commuters/trip takers.

Re: Gears

Lol with a Tuner you'll get better gas mileage without MDS.

Re: Gears

It'll still shift out of mds every time i hit a slight incline. Thats whats stupid, it works great on perfectly flat ground and down hill but a slight hill it pops out. I am still going to do a tuner and hopefully can lock my QL in OR2 height amung the power/efficiency gains. Any new word on a tuner yet anyway?
