what a serious improvement this is on my car!

I drive with the ECM on the most aggressive setting and DBW on the less aggressive setting as the higher setting can be a bit too touchy in heavy traffic with sport mode turned on.

The best part about these mods is I can revert back to stock for warranty issues, best of both worlds! I tested this out last week when my nearly new 2013 sport with 2,500 miles had a rattle from the exhaust on cold start. The car was at the dealer for two weeks as they looked over everything with a fine tooth comb and replaced both mufflers and nothing was said about my mods (which were removed and bypass plugs installed)

The DBW is so important in city driving as the throttle was mash potatoes before, with the less aggressive setting it drives perfect! Not too aggressive and worlds better than stock. If I did not live in a city with a lot of traffic I would always drive around with the most aggressive setting turned on the DBW.

The ECM on most aggressive setting gives the car the extra oomph it needs on the highway. I never tried the less aggressive setting for ECM and probably never will.

A car that looks this mean deserves to drive way more sporty than the factory makes 'em. FD did an excellent job with these mods. If you are looking to make your GT drive more like the exotic car it looks like then this is for you :cheers:

Thanks so much for the review, glad we helped get you a great result with your new 2013 GT Sport 4.7L!

We get so many questions from owners with the new 4.7L models that are looking to make a difference and help close the performance gap with other luxury sports car models but they don't know where to start. So it's always great to hear from a new owner that can help affirm that these are certainly an excellent place to make a noticeable improvement.

Best Regards,

I bought the ECM and DBW for my 13 GT Sport but have never installed it. They are sitting is the delivery box in pristine condition. I am still debating having them installed or selling them. I bought them with full intent to use and then I placed my order for my 458 and just never got around to it. That car now feeds my need for overt speed so I am not sure I need to change the dynamics of the Maserati as my daily driver. Let me know if anyone is interested.... I do have to say the guys at FD were very cool to deal with.
