    All is good in the hood. Driveability was awesome. I am in the midst of getting retuned to see if i was able to pick up more power from installing the bigger TB. The only unforseen part was needing longer bolts (mine didnt come with any...)when useing that adapter plate luckely i had my hex head bolts laying around from my TB meth spacer that did the trick. The plate was nice and simple for the st mani. Now i am gasket less on my tb setup.

    The only problem Im experiencing is harsh jerking when I let my foot off my throttle. Something @Sho told me relates to the DFCO table that is not available for adjustments via Cobb ATR.

    I get the rev hang and the jerkiness on decel/engine braking.

    Stop and go traffic was annoying since you're between 0-5% throttle so much where you really don't have much resolution with it. Once you're moving though I found it to be very nice to drive with.

    I probably would've had zero complaints with the touchy throttle if I didn't use the car to commute from time to time living smack between Baltimore and DC.

    Edit - this was also with a 6-puck which probably added to the touchiness of the throttle/clutch relationship.

    @Clintb3astwood based the quoted response you need to convince Cobb to tweek their software for us...so no fix in that end. The other "fixes" based on the comments is too not daily the car. Or daily it and enjoy the subtleties that come with race parts on a daily.

    AFAIK, DFCO is decel fuel cut off (someone correct me if I'm wrong) and not being able to adjust it w/ the bigger throttle plate causes the issues that some are having. I know people that daily it and get used to it, but if you're picky about drivability and comfort, it may get to you. I guess it depends on the person driving.

    Exactly. If you don’t care because race car, go for it. I personally do not like it( because I’m boujee and a snob) and will be switching to OEM when I have the chance.

    I just clutch in instead of simply throttle lifting if it's feeling jerky. It isn't that big of a deal unless you're a crybaby like Tim.

    If I had one, I wouldn't mind it. The car is a racecar at this point.

    I didnt like it at first.. but after 1000 miles of driving you just take it as it is. Really isn't bad to drive with. But if you have a set power number you want this will help you get there.

    Hmmm alright fellas, i appreciate it. I got one from a partout, should be here any day now. I'll ride around on it for a day or so and see how i like it, if its annoying ill go back to OEM and sell it. Sucks Cobb wont update the Accessport to accommodate fuel cut... ah Well.

    I appreciate the advice and speedy responses! Im actually going to start a thread on my custom modded Tech package lights if you guys wanna check it out!

    Cruise in second gear at about 2500rpm and throttle lift, as if you were in 15mph congested traffic. That's when it's noticeable.
