I have a 3.6 with auto in my 2 door sport and on my freeway onramp to hit the 75mph I am heavy into it after the cloverleaf and have never noticed any throttle lag. Must be RPM'd up because of the way I hit it hard.

the jump in rpm is the transmission downshifting to a lower gear, hence why your buddies manual equipped vehicle does not do the same thing like others ahave said, a petal comander will gie a more. linear response that you may be looking for by is not going to add any more power just remaps the throttle body to closer match petal input

I finally got the hikeit X9 installed. Major difference. So far I’ve tried it on auto and eco level 5. Auto is great so far. If I need to get out in traffic I have no hesitation about going for it now. You hit the throttle and there is an immediate response. The eco isn’t bad. Better than the stock configuration but you can tell there is some lag still. I’m going to try out the other modes as well. I’m not sure if I’m going to try the hikeit mode as I can see that I’ll be spinning tires and I don’t feel like breaking anything. My opinion is it’s worth the price.

The downshift for a higher rpm is normal on the auto transmission. Its what it is supposed to do. I would worry if it didnt. It is equivalent to your buddy with the manual transmission shifting to a lower gear to get more power to increase speed.

I agree with what you are saying. I just wanted it to be more responsive. Seems like you almost have to floor it when you want to jump into traffic or pass another vehicle on the highway. I know all newer vehicles have that pedal lag due to fuel economy standards but I didn’t buy my jeep for the fuel economy. The hikeit did what I wanted it to which was a more accurate pedal response.

Anyone running the HikeIt on the 3.6L with the 6 speed manual transmission? Any tips or setting recommendations?
