I have it on my Ram, I have never one time felt like it delayed power. There is much of a delay when the traction control kicks in than mds. It goes straight from mds being on to rear tires spinning instantaneously.
Now if you want to talk about removing torque management I am 100% all for that.
I think their may be a confusion. I too think its great. But when you add an aftermarket exhaust that wakens up the growl and have this fuel saver tech/AFM and your engine switches from 8 to 4 cylinders do you think its going to maintain that v8 rumble/growl? I dont think so. What happens is fart like sounds from your exhaust that seem a bit embarrasing. Kind of like a ricer. No offense to 4 bangers. But i think the v8 rumble should be on at all times. So this is why the camaro guys and suv guys get these. Thats why i had it on my Old SS. Im planning on getting an aftermarket exhaust but want to know if something like this would work. You know.

I was going to amend what I said to include that. On these wk2's not too many people put aftermarket exhausts on them so I forgot about that. I doubt it would, you might be able to get a tuner if there are any out for the 2014 wk2 hemi's. They would be able to disable it. It is pretty simple on my ram, just set 8th gear as the top gear and go, but the paddle shifters on these jeeps don't work like that.

Oh ok. I was thinking it may not work. Awesome, thanks for your input bud.
