Heavy clutter/jerking. What Could It Be? *WITH VIDEO*

Long story short after recieving my Eurocharged v7 Tune I noticed a lot of clutter in between 4-5k rpm in 3rd gear WHEN I let go of the throttle. Second gear is even worse when I let go of the throttle. After emailing Jerry from Eurocharged and pretty much getting told he couldn’t do anything as far as “DETHROTTLING” goes I decided to take out the car for a full test and look at all factors. Results that I found:

2nd gear: 4k-5k rpm< dethrottle; HEAVY clutter (its major head jerking)
3rd gear: 5k-6k rpm< dethrottle; very slight clutter after doing a MCT TCU reset

I don't know if this is coming from my torque converter, intake manifold leak, etc. Just wondering if somebody had a better idea where this could come from

Ask for the v5 version. The best, most reliable one they have released in my opinion ( and some testing). Not saying you can't/won't be able to get the v7 to work, but I have had the v5 for many years and I still enjoy it.

After testing & research from my end. It was all due to the "spit flames" feature I wanted on my tune. Reached out to Jerry from Eurocharged and explained the issues I was having and to just remove that feature and WAALAA I got my tune working !00% with zero power surge.

Im interested in shooting flames too. Did it work, at least? Do you have cats?

Thanks.

You can’t shoot flames with cats. And to be honest, all these burble/pop/look at me tunes are ridiculous. They are ricey. They do nothing but clog cats, foul O2 sensors, and tell people with real performance mods that you care more about people noticing you than actually going fast. A catless exhaust with a proper tune will make plenty of burbles abd pops. End rant.

Yea I had no idea what I was getting into when I requested it & I even told Jerry "IF its overall not good for the engine to add that then dont bother" but apparently he still added it. I'm just glad its removed and I found the issue and it wasn't something major like my torque converter or a leak. But to the other old hags I hope you realize there are a lot of younger folks getting a hold of these cars now and they're going to do whatever they want to there cars. Let them live

Not wanting some stupid *** "feature" is a sign of being old? I must be OAF then
