So I decided to try a stage 2 Jet Performance Module on my lightly modded 2016 Scat Pack. First time to the track with no other changes, I lost 4 tenth's in the 1/4 mile on my best run. Granted, the DA was a little worse going from 3,000 to 3,500, but I don't think that is worth 4 tenths. This week I went back with drag radials and it was around 3,100 DA, and got a 12.88 which isn't terrible, but should be better. I decided to pull the module off today and took it around the block afterward. Almost spun out on the first corner because it had so much more to it then it has since installing it. I guess I drove it as long as I did hoping it was doing good and not looking at how it really was responding. This is not a cheap $60 chip, but the expensive module. I will update next time I get to go to the track which will probably be a couple of weeks because it looks like rain this coming Friday. I'm going to make sure I set the tires to the same psi and see if there is a difference. If it is about the same, or different either way, I'll post here so anyone that might be interested in trying these knows what my actual experience was.

Gas mileage was about the same as before, FYI.

Ig is basically suppose to be like a canned tune, but really didn't seem to do a whole lot. I took it off for a few days to see how the cars feels. Might throw it back on tomorrow again and check it out some more. Did not do anything for shifts. Think I might rather just go with a Tazer until l can get an unlocked pcm and tuner.

+$300 for the piggy back module which is about the cost to get a PCM unlocked but you still don't have a tuner or tune. I guess it is an affordable way to get more pep. Does it alter trans shift points? Also wonder if this just mimics through hardware what tuners like diablo/HP achieve by changing the PCM calibration?
Now if you buy a H.P. Tuners module or 600 credits, they will unlock your PCM for free.

I tried with it on and off a couple of times now and see absolutely no difference. To the point I won't sell it because I can't justify charging someone else money for something that doesn't work.
