buying a 2009-2010 GC LTD Hemi in next couple months
 
I hear a lot about the throttle delay-is it true? Is there a fix?

WOW - this seems like such a problem I may not want a hemi. We buy the HEMI for power and dont get it? Is there any sure fix for the throttle lag? I dont want to shift down or go to tow-haul all the time! Can anyone reply?

Not sure what "problem" you are referring to :confused:. I experience no noticeable throttle lag with mine.

If you keep your throttle body clean and the EGR valve is in good condition, I think you'll be fine.

If your EGR valve is no good, or your throttle body is caked thick with oil, then yes, throttle response can suffer...

There is also a procedure to re-calibrate the electronic throttle control - never had to do it, but maybe one (or all) of the above are the source of the problems people have been having?

If you google jeep hemi throttle lag you will find a ton of very irritated owners with this problem. even posted on here-I am just new and may not find the solution.
I have heard CAI, DiabloSport, Exhaust all HELP but still have the problem. Now I see Sprint Booster-sounds like snake oil to me but - I dont know.
I was hoping to get a GC for the AWD and wanted a hot rod at the same time. Am very disheartened and am looking at other makes now. Someone please give me a solution! Have wanted a GC ltd for years and finally can afford an 09-10.
