That said, after I had the update applied, I have NO response for 3-5 secs. after starting out from a full stop; engine cold or hot. It acts like the engine is flooded out and just not getting any fuel or to much to handle. After that, it does at least try to get out of its own way.

    You guys who are saying you see no difference either had a bad ECM to start with or something is definitely different that what some of us are experiencing. This is just totally unacceptable. I would never have bought a truck that performs like this. I've had under-powered cars/trucks before, but that was what I bought and what I expected. THIS IS NOT!

    I will find a way to get FCA to get this back to what it was and I don't see why I should have to purchase a GDE tune for $2000 to get back to what I originally purchased.

    Go ahead and tell me its all "butt" feeling and I'd be glad to drive to wherever you are in the country and have you drive it. If yours drives better then there MUST be something going on with the tunes that we are not getting on all the trucks.
    Same exact experience with my truck. I took it in today and said fix it. I dont want to see it again until it returns to the truck I bought. I dont know why so many are resigned to their truck getting so impacted. Thanks

    As for timeline I registered in early May. Recalls and campaigns done on truck 5/13. Sent signed and notarized documents by snail mail on 5/28 and electronic version three times. They finally say they have everything but I need to get the repair done. Told them it was done already. Got them and my service rep on the phone together. This whole processes is a cluster f$^#.

    Concerning the performance of the truck. Well it sucked until I put the GDE tune back in. Without the tune I would have sold the truck. Love the message when you call that there will not be any performance or mpg change. If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.

    since FCA will not release to the consumer what parameters were changed in the AEM update, I wonder if GDE or any of the other tuners can tell what tweeks FCA may have made. I'm wondering if they may be able to give some insight to those that are experiencing throttle delay or just personal perception.

    someone needs to post videos of going to a drag strip pre AEM and post AEM!

    LOL Now we need a video of drag strip times to prove that post AEM throttle lag is a not a figment of the majority of owners imagination.....Think about this, 2/3 to 3/4 of owners report throttle lag in every single thread on this topic. If that is not enough to prove it is more than just some sort of a "perception" issue then nothing will convince the few that have not experienced it firsthand.

    My reality is this.... Post AEM my lawn mower is quicker off the line and would win an across a wide intersection drag race against my Ecodiesel. The AEM flash robbed so much low end power that from a dead stop my 3:92 geared truck will not spin the wheels in TWO wheel drive on dirt. Before AEM in 4X4 it would dig 4 trenches from a dead stop on dirt when you punched it. That is not perception, sadly that is reality.

    This is a great question, I would love to hear what the guys at GDE are seeing with this tune...specifically if they could say what changes they're seeing and why so many are having such poor throttle response that was not there before....
