I'm all for displacement on demand or Active Fuel Management on my next vehicle. Any time I can use technology to save some $$ on the highway, I'm all for itWhy would you not want an "MDS" system like my charger??
You still have all of the power exactly when you want it and when you dont need the power i.e. cruising on the freeway cylinders shut down and save you gas.
In my car the response is instant and seamless.
The only way to turn it off in the Charger is to use autostick mode on the tranny. I can quite figure how it would work with a manual transmission.
Its a good thing to have and a great selling feature for buyers looking for a little bit of "green" with thier muscle.
My bowtie is at the house but its old and crappy 1975 K10 Cheyenne with a custom flow through body (really really rusty). Hoping to replace it with a new camaro as soon as possible. My wifes bowtie is 03 Tahoe LT with ummmmmm everything on it.One. Wheres the bowtie bud?
Two. Ive driven charger like the one you where talking about and its not as perfect as u would have it.
Three. If someone wants to drive with a greenthumb, they should get a cobalt or a civic.
If i buy 8 cylinders, i want 8 cylinders at all times. Active Fuel management is going to add another couple thousand on an already expensive price, not to mention if something in the system malfuctions $ cause stuff like that always tears-up at a bad time
Drag racing, I dont know never done it.I'm all for displacement on demand or Active Fuel Management on my next vehicle. Any time I can use technology to save some $$ on the highway, I'm all for it
How does that affect drag racing your vehicle? Does it engage after a certain RPM has been met for a certain amount of time?
