That looks awesome! Keep us updated! Do you know if the non-Bluetooth version has the ability to change modes from Eco to Sport etc?

thanks

I was wondering that as well. I have to call Madness tomorrow, so if I think of it, I'll ask the rep.


Installed the GFB DV+ today.

Not feeling a tremendous amount of difference quite yet, but it's my understanding that the ECU might have to "adjust" for the different boost scenario. I'll keep you posted.

OD, did you consider the blow off plate as well? I know some guys like it and others don't. Also I have heard with the diverter valve its more for a preventive then a enhancer, unless the poem diverter was already leaking. At least that what I was told when I called Modern Performance.

I actually did! The only thing that gave me pause, was the fact that when installed along with the dv+, longer bolts are needed and things start to get really tight down there.

I'll still probably end up with one on there, tho

BTW. Does anyone have any idea how to get those STUPID clamps loose that are all over the engine? Installation would have gone a LOT quicker f I could've removed the intake hose, but I couldn't figure out how to take the clamp loose, so I had to contort myself and work around it to get the bottom bolt loose.

I knew that when installing both you would need the longer bolts. Modern Performance actually sell the 2 together along with bolts. They also sell the bolts separate for like 11 bucks. I would post up the website but Im not sure thats allowed. Currently they don't list anything for the Jeep but I have spoken to them a few times and I just look at the Dart stuff. I think they also mention something about the clips. I do know there are 2 different BV one can be used with the poem air duct and the other requires modification(I think).

Only if you let the new found Power take over you. I found when I have used these ECMs and system flashes, the vehicles get even better gas mileage than stock. Even when using the sport tunes. Again it is hard to not want to gas it when you know its there though.

I am sold I believe the difference for the non-bluetooth is to change the tune, you have to use the quick detach and hook it to a computer. Kind of a pain but I don't plan on switching off of Sport Plus. LOL

I assume the answer is yes, but does installing the ECM void the manufacturers warranty on the engine?
