Throttle Managment? Laggy Performance...

Hey Guys,

So I drove both a new 2011 6.7 F-350 king ranch and a 2011 Chevy 2500HD Durmax this weekend. I know that most of these new trucks have electronic throttles on them that are controlled by the computer. By doing this, the manufactures can limit the amount of power sent to the transmission which makes driving these powerful trucks feel laggy and weak.

I was not too impressed with both trucks because the throttle response was pretty bad and I was expecting to be thrown into the back of my seat due to all the torque these trucks have. Do you guys feel the same?

Do you guys know if there is a way to remove this "torque management" as it is called on the Chevy side?

You could turn off the traction control. When you drove them, did you wait for the engine to come up to operating temp? They limit power when they are cold to avoid overstressing the engine. Mine definitely throws me back in the seat when I punch it.

I didn't try turning off the TC. I did wait for it to warm up. I let it idle for a good 10 minutes because I was waiting for both my buddy to get back from driving the new 2011 5.0 mustang and the salesman to get back.

Also, does it throw you back into the seat from a rolling 5-10 MPH start or a stand still?

It did kick in more power once it got to a certain RPM range, but I was hoping it would be more powerful at the start.

Thanks for the reply!

Back of the seat no matter what. It's hardest from a stand still but rolling between 5 and 10 mph is pretty good too. Mostly it's tranny downshifting that takes a second. With a brand new truck, the tranny hasn't "learned" everything yet. They say it takes about 5,000 miles to get the tranny all learned up.
