i had it in my car. threw a stabilitrak code.

my car has been tuned almost since day one in 2009 and i hadn't realized that my tuner had already adjusted the throttle delay.

installed the VTC back in july 2016 and didnt notice any change in throttle response. A few days later got a stabilitrak light. Im not sure if it was because of the VTC or not but once i removed it the stabilitrak light turned off on its own about 2 days later and never came back

so now its been sitting in the package it came in since that day in my garage

I've had mine about a year and no issue. I keep mine on SP5 for daily driving and move up to 7 or 9 if someone gets daring. This is on an RS.

Finesse controllers

I have had my camaro 8 years,and have done several upgrades such as cai,short headers,magnaflow mufflers,and never heard of this modification till a month ago,so ordered one yesterday and have read a lot of reviews more positive than negative reviews,so,my question is most of the reviews are within a couple months of putting it on,so,how is it long term,any concerns I should be prepared for? Thanks

u can get reduced engine power on the freeway for example and be totally trapped in a no power mode. It can happen alot so much so that I for example had to remove mine because I couldnt go up a hill without getting a reduced power mode

2 sides to every coin. I have had mine for over 5 years and 60K miles later, never had an issue.

mine did that also i unplugged it from my petal drove it to work after i reconnected the petal without it then cleared the codes and drove to work.when i got home i reconnected it and went thru the setup again i found a loose battery ground. so i think i had a bad ground on my battery.low battery voltage or bad ground causes problems with it.i haven't had a problem since i fixed the ground.
