NOTE: I installed the device with the ignition in the full OFF position, even though no directions provided stated to do it that way – just made sense to me. I will neither plug in nor unplug the device with the ignition on.

Looking at your pic of the device, I'm wondering if I have enough foot/leg room not to knock it out of the port?
Size 14 boots.......and 36" inseam, I need room!

I was on a 545 mile road trip yesterday....and the Phuckin' AFM was driving me nuts.
You tested some hills, but my biggest issues were when I was going down a long grade in V4 and a 1/3 of the way up the grade it would kick into V8 mode.

Back and forth....back and forth!

I would finally drop it into manual 6 gear mode, to lock it out.
This sucks when passing in a pinch and you forget it's in manual sixth ......there is NO downshifting!

This can be dangerous for a split second, until you quickly play with the shifter, so the blasted thing will downshift....giving you the power to pass that slow poke, holding every one up!

I will be ordering one soon, but I need to find out more on the physical space it consumes.
I did some more testing on that yesterday. I don't think it will be an issue. If it is - we'll likely offer an extension cable as well. We can source those pretty inexpensively.
