I have it set at City +1, so far I have not found one negative with the PC.

Got my PC Friday and installed it in a parking lot, Huge difference! It really makes the V6 wake up! I havn't had time to play with it alot, and the direction card doesn't tell you how to turn it off and on, only how to toggle through settings. I actually convinced a buddy to buy one for his Camaro with a test ride in my Colorado!

I have a similar setup in a way with the v6 and the trifecta tune. The lag ha though are experiencing can be adjusted/eliminated with the pc. It does not interfere in any way with the tune programming. Think of it as using the truck with a more aggressive foot on gas action, instead of you pressing the gas quicker, the pc will do the work for you. It's a great solution to a lasy gas pedal.

I'm very pleased with the pc on tune 3. I've been playing with it between city 0 and city +2. Only had it a couple of weeks. Will continue experimenting with the different tunes and pc settings. One thing for sure the dead pedal feel is only history.

I can only speak from my experience as I believe I had one of the worst running new Colorado to be delivered. Others have reported that the PC got rid of peddle lag on their tunes.

In City =0 I found the throttle to lag going around corners, others say set at City -1 that it preformed perfect. Mine runs best on City +1. Having the PC so easy to adjust to how your truck runs makes all the sense in the world. Glad it's not a "one size fits all" as I found with my truck not all Colorado's run the same no matter what.

Would that be "ECO 0"?
When I push the mode button over to Eco, it doesn't light up, but all lights light up scrolling when I open the door in the morning when the systems wake up.

When all the lights are off you're in stock mode. To get into ECO mode you have to hold the program button for 3 seconds.

Has anyone with the 4 cylinder engine installed one of these? Or does this mainly help out the 6 cylinder and diesel trucks?

i've been using it on city +2 for a few weeks. still came up with a wee bit of downshift issues after a while around 25 ish and 40ish however minor. i was thinking it was the adaptive tranny or accelerator trying to adapt back to whatever GM has it adapt to. graduated to SPORT in various settings and settling on +3 seems to be even better shifting and of course better throttle response the past couple days. fun to play with it until i buy a 2019 something

I have asked that question a couple of times with no response so I guess that means no. I don't know if the 4 cylinder gas owners are too poor or cheap or perhaps those trucks don't have pedal lag. Have you ever heard them complain about anything?

That is very true. I think they are just happy with their trucks. I also believe that the chuggling/pedal lag is not as present on their setup.

I have the 4 banger in my '16, the pedal response seems pretty good. I haven't noticed a shudder in the shifting. What I really dislike is when I need to quickly accelerate, there is a momentary pause between flooring the pedal and when the truck accelerates. There is a good 2 to 3 seconds delay. The rpm's rise and the exhaust sounds like the truck is flying, but the acceleration lags. I'm wondering if the PC will help with this.

I've read (here) that they have 4:10 rear ends. The 4 cyl probably isn't programmed to lug around like the v6 trying to save every last penny on gas.....

I have noticed just a hint of shift hesitation, but it's nice that we can barely touch the gas and it's gone. Sure nothing like before and glad it's only once in a great while. I will play with Sport and see how it does on mine, thanks.

Installed Pedal Commander today. Definitely a cool product that really REALLY helped with the drive-ability of the truck. Maybe its cuz I had my last Colorado tuned or my 800HP Camaro ZL1, but Sport at -4 / City at +4 is what seemed my sweet spot. I wouldn't say this 100% resolved what I feel is a horrible tune map for shifting on our truck, but it definitely made a dent. It makes it decide to shift into the correct gear faster and significantly reduces the dead pedal/lag when trying to downshift for sure, but it doesn't SPEED UP the time between shifts that I think only a tune could fix. Most car manufacturers seem to tune it so that it slips the clutch in between shifting to make it "smooth", however I hate this. I'm sure it also reduces the life of the transmission I'm sure. I have a friend who owns a tuning shop in town so will probably have him take a look and see if I can quicken the shifts a bit at some point after the warranty is up. Overall highly recommended like most people have said on here. Customer service is very fast and responsive too.

I received my diablosport i2 2 days ago, yesterday I had some time to insyall/config the tune. I adjusted the throttle boost to the max and turned off the pc . it behaved as city on about - 3-4. I can officially say that neither the trifecta or the Diablo tune makes the throttle as perfectly responsive as the pc. The reason I got the i2 is to make changes to the shift pattern and together with the pc would have made the truck 100% satisfying. I am yet to figure out the transmission settings that I like. Unfortunately the settings I was looking for are not available. Either way, the pc is a must to get rid of the pedal lag and then a good transmission tune would place the cherry on the cake.

I would suggest not waiting on a group buy. This is already a 20+ page thread and a lot of folks have paid the $269.00 with the discount code. It is definitely money well-spent in my opinion.
