Re: Dead-spot in gas pedal on my '05.....

Hemibeast, I would recommend that he ADD an MDS "ON" light if he hasn't already. I did it to mine 3 days after I got mine. It's easy to do. See the "how to" write-up that I did about 4 years ago over at LXForums.com, Knowledge Base. My screen name there is "magnuman". Wiring and pinouts are the same. Routing of wiring and light mount location are the only things that may differ. It's actually easier on the WK than it was on the LX.

Also, where did you mount your Billet Tech. Catch Can? I did one too, but it wouldn't mount in the same place as it does on the LX. I mounted mine to the support that goes over the engine.

Re: Dead-spot in gas pedal on my '05.....

Nice.... you won't need autostick once you receive the predator and disable MDS. And when your ready for a CMR tune pm Tom@ modern horsepower performance.

Re: Dead-spot in gas pedal on my '05.....

i have a similar question.. i have a 4.7 with only the 7-70 powertrain warranty left. would this be covered under the powertrain warranty because it deals with the transmission?

yes...the tsb is covered under the 7/70. I had this tsb performed. It is for tranny lug. I never experienced the tranny lug...but its updates the tcm. Beware...if you have a superchips...you will have to update your tune with superchips

Re: Dead-spot in gas pedal on my '05.....

Even with MDS disabled, steady cruising at about 40 MPH will drop the tranny into 4th gear, and you'll probably be turning somewhere around 1300-1500 RPM. If you give it throttle and it doesn't downshift, you're way too low in the powerband to get any kind of real acceleration - hence why you gotta kind of goose it to get it to downshift.

Re: Dead-spot in gas pedal on my '05.....

I have a 3.7 and I eperience lag all the time, mostly going up hills. It feels like its in a higher gear than it should be with lower rpm's. Im used to putting the throttle to the floor to make it downshift, but its annoying and doesnt feel right. I never experienced this in my previous 5.2 GC's.

Re: Dead-spot in gas pedal on my '05.....

Here's a question that may be dumb, but I have never taken my car to the dealer to have anything "flashed", would I benifit from it or does something have to be "wrong" with the car, like can they just hook it to a machine and reprogram everything to newer specs or however they do it?
