    New Stealth tune screwed up my traction control

    WTF?

    Now when I accelerate "briskly" my screen goes white and I get a "TRACTION CONTROL ENGAGED".

    I don't hear any chirp, the rear doesn't break loose or hop.

    BUT NOW I HAVE GOBS OF TORQUE, and it boogies.

    Even with the X pipe and no cats did my V "jump" like it does now.

    It winds out right up to redline when the cutoff cuts in.

    And that is with cats and the resonator installed.

    I have to relearn the throttle as I can make the screen light up at will (almost).

    And no "CHECK ENGINE" light crap.

    Thanks RICK!

    Same here. I think the maggie was actually the original cause of the problem but the Stealth tune really exacerbated the situation!

    Thanks Rick!!!

    Send it back and tell him to reflash to OEM, then you won't be having all of those "problems"





    Jim- you're not fooling anyone, your butt has perma-itch.

    Yep, Rick really needs to take more time in perfecting his tune. Forget the TC coming on... All of that rubber needlessly being burned up is destroying our atmosphere and causing global warming.

    Rick leaving us for months at a time to play in the snow is very distressing for me. I am suing him for needless mental anguish.



    And I swear, my butt does NOT itch. But I've developed a leak in my O-ring, if ya know what I mean...
