What's the difference between what AEV's calibrator does and what my Diablo Sport Tuner does? I corrected my speedo already, or does the AEV also change/recalibrate the ESP itself?

Second, it says, "When the speedometer is left uncorrected, there is a major degradation in the performance of the stability control (ESP), transmission shifting, and engine performance." It seems like it is just correcting the speedometer in order to fix the ESP, which I already did with my Diablo Tuner.

Then further down, "and even has a feature to help alignment technicians align the vehicle perfectly for optimal ESP performance." So...I don't know how much of this is just marketing BS or actually a technical advantage over a good alignment.

Anyone that actually has it wanna chime in?

Re: Lifts and tire size thread :)

Yes a bunch of the JK stuff works on the WK. My understanding is that unless you have a superlift, you do not need the AEV module. The AEV module will prevent the ESP from kicking in when you are making tight turns and such. The superchips and predetor do not do so. The only person i know who has the AVE module is Mr.Tosh. I believe he also has the predator. You should find his build thread under members ride section and ask him any questions you have. He is arguably the most knowledgeable jeep guy on the forum.
