You want Injector cut (INJ), not Ignition cut (IGN), unless you have Nitrous installed.

....and make sure that you have the $$$$ saved to fix whatever breaks when you use it.....'cuz you WILL break something....hopefully just the clutch, more likely the tranny....and maybe the engine will let go, too......BEWARE.

if you are smart you will SLLLLLLIIIIIIPPPPP the clutch to save the tranny. If you dump the clutch you will QUICKLY be looking for an tranny parts. Unless you are running heavy mods (a Dog box to start with) you shouldn't be using launch control.

...if you don't understand this, and it is apparent you do not.......DON'T.

It would be real easy to destroy the drivetrain of your car, and stand there with a stupid look on your face wondering what the hell just happened.....

Also keep in mind that Launch Control can be used for more than damaging-hard launches. My favorite use of this feature is the super smooth high-rev shifting capabilities. I have my LC rev set at 4,500k and you never have to lift your foot off the gas on high-rev shifts and it’s actually smoother then fully releasing the throttle…

I dig it…

I can't find that anywhere in my TXS UTEC manual......could you tell me where I could find it?
Does Kartboy make an add-on module for that?

flat foot shifting is great until you get into someone else's car and forget they don't have it!

seriously though i use it at least once a day. great fun.

I wouldn't use launch control on '02 motors. Shim over buckets...

chris, issues with the drivetrain are invariably (at least all the reports i've seen) caused by using ignition cut. the ultra-rich unburnt air fuel mixture ends up in the hot exhaust manifold, which lights it off, causing a huge afterfire. the pressure wave from this afterfire literally pushes the exhaust valves open, causing them to spit their shims. it's all downhill from there.

i've been injector cutting for about a year. no issues.

one thing to keep in mind... holding full boost while stopped puts an ENORMOUS heatload in the intercooler, and with no airflow the core temp rises precipitously.

Makes sence, Ken. Its just all around so abusive to the motor. I didn't hook up the stuff because I know I'd use it...can't afford to blow this car up yet
