Finesse controller

I have a 2011 LS automatic,it has over 100k miles,and Iíve had it 7 yrs. and have done several things as far as mods for performance,cai,shorty headers,and magnaflow mufflers,and ordered this finesse controller yesterday, ? Is with doing those mods will I still get the full effect from it,and also have seen when installing it,several people are removing the gas pedal,if itís just a plug canít you get to it without removing it unless you a big guy,which Iím not,oh,and I have a small head,lol...so can get into tight spots.and would like to here from people who have had this on there car more than a few months. Thanks

Taking off the pedal may reduce significant frustration but you can certainly install the controller without removing the pedal. The problem I found was that the connector above the pedal is not only a bit of a reach (I ended up sliding under the dash face-up to see/reach it), but also if you don't know how the connector works it can be a pain in the ass undoing it. If memory serves, I believe there is a clip on the side facing the front of the car that has to be pushed up first before removing.

The controller makes driving much more fun, especially if you don't have a tune. Rumor has it that setting the setpoint to 9 is rather addicting... I did find that you shouldn't modulate the gas pedal too quickly, however, or else the ECM can get confused and throw a code and go into limp mode, although this will fix itself after turning the car off and back on a few minutes later.

Thanks so much,from what I have gathered on reviews,if it’s not calibrated correctly will cause a lot of problems and I think that’s a lot of people’s issue,not calibrated correct.
