  1. Does anyone know exactly what "tuning" they do when you get these? I was always told that the flappers were to kill the noise from the fuel management garbage. If the flappers are not in the performance exhaust, then does that possibly mean they are tuning to turn the DFM off?!?!?!? THAT is definitely worth $1,500 if so. Trying real hard not to go on a DFM rant.
  2. Gear shifter buttons

    The way it works on mine at least is I set it to L7 and that just prevents it from going to 8th. It still behaves like it's in D, just doesn't go to 8th
  3. Mine actually does it very rarely after 1500. 1200-1500 I can actually make it do it. And you can feel it in the floor, center console, and pedals.
  4. I also posted this in another thread, but thought it might be useful in this one as well. So, driving set on L7 SEEMS like it might turn the DFM function down if not off. I can clearly notice the DFM on my truck at 1300 rpm with light throttle. Feels like a cell phone on vibrate ringing in the center console. I even took it to the dealer to have it checked out because I thought it couldn't possibly by normal. Of course they told me it was and that I was "essentially feeling a miss-fire". I am not sure I buy that, but either way when I put it in L7 I don't feel that. Now I didn't have a long drive, but in D I can make it go in DFM on command. If it was there with the L7, it was so much more subtle it was undetectable which is the way I understood it should be. So I won't say without a doubt the DFM function isn't working at all in L7, but if it is I sure can't tell. What I'm curious of is if maybe it is working but just not dropping as many cylinders so I can't feel it. Dropping down to 2 or possibly even 1 cylinder (I think I read that) is a bit drastic for a V8. Personally I want all 8 all the time. I paid for a V8, so I don't understand why it's not even an option to me whether or not I want to use this function.

  6. Gear shifter buttons

    I'll try tomorrow and see if it affects DFM.
  7. I've got less than 1000 miles on this thing and it started idling kinda rough today
  8. My gear shifter has plus and minus buttons for what seems like should allow you to manually shift gears. Problem is, they dont do anything at all when pressed. Anyone got any ideas of why?
  9. wireless charging upgrade

  10. wireless charging upgrade

    How do you get the inside part of the lid apart? Is there clips or screws I'm not seeing? BTW. You may be my hero of the day! That's freakin awesome and exactly what I was looking for. I think this should be a sticky. I think the secret is the 3 coil charger to make it work well
  11. wireless charging upgrade

    I was going to buy the guts of a wireless charger with 3 coils and fast charge tech and mount it under the cut out, but after looking at the lid I don't see a way to get it apart and I'm not brave enough to be the guinea pig on my brand new ride to go tear apart the console lid not knowing if it can be or not. I've seen lots of people do that on the 14-15s but the new center is completely different.
  12. Range Technologies

    sure would be nice if we could get some sort of updates on the progress they are making. Maybe my truck is different, but I can definitely tell when DFM is going. It's the most noticeable at about 1200-1300 RPMs. Kind of vibration feel. Drives me crazy, and there's also a lag when your in that and punch the gas before it goes. On my 15 Sierra I had a range and a sprint booster on the gas pedal, and that combo made night and day difference. Hopefully when Range gets done and all 8 are firing all the time the lag will be eliminated for the most part. Does anyone know what the certain conditions are that DFM won't run? I wonder if it does in sport mode or tow
  13. How is the DFM working for you?

    Does anyone know of circumstances when the DFM wont function? I.e.pulling trailer, sport mode, etc? Also, has anyone heard real world aftermarket exhaust one one of these yet? I think corsa and flowmaster are the only ones available right now. Curious if the DFM makes the same horrible sound the AFM did.
  14. I'm in the feel a slight vibration boat. Not terrible, but if you're looking for it you'll feel it. I'm the type of person though, it drives me crazy. Spoke to the Range tech people today and they have a 19 silverado and are developing the disabler for the DFM. I will personally be waiting for the day it is finished and order one immediately. Government Motors needs to let me decide if I want that crap or not, along with the wonderful "feature" that is auto start/stop. Whoever came up with the idea of putting that on a truck with no option of permanently disabling it should be punished severely. Why do I have to push another button to undo what I don't want EVERY time I crank my truck? Sorry. Rant over
  15. Anyone know of any way to add wireless charging to the '19 RST or LT? curious if maybe the module from the 16-18 would go under the cutout in the lid since there's no little shelf or whatever that is built into the center part where the wireless charging is on the ltz.
