hey I was hoping someone could school me on torque management. I have an 04 gto a4, what is the difference between torque management and traction control? is there a way to turn it off or limit it like with the traction control button? I have a super chips handheld tuner, It has stock/performance setting, shift point adjust, and shift firmness adjust, does it do anything to affect tq/m. I know the superchip tuner is very limited, (it lets me read and clear codes). I am going to get a tuner program for a laptop later (hopefully this summer), can anyone recomend one for me. Cold air Intake, slp maf, superchips tune, pacesetter lts, 3 inch true duals so far. Rite now it looks good now I need to make it faster. future mods: 3500 stall, heads, intake, cam and maybe FI
Thank for you input and help guys

ok, thank you for the info, I kept hearing people talking about torque managment, but wasn't sure about it or how it worked....so how many people, and how long, did they work to detune our cars potential before they got them to the dealerships lol

From what I understand basically torque management retards timing right before the shift to supposedly save the trans.

try a burnout with traction on. then do one with traction off.mine won't spin on water with it on. it has nothing to do with one or two tires spinning. pos unit controls that.

lol yeah, I pulled up to do my burnout at the track and realized really quick that I forgot to turn it off

Torque Management is GM's way of putting an end to the fun before it gets started. There are several different scenarios that bring TM into play. Among these are "abusive launches" and WOT up-shifts/downshifts. When TM is enabled, the PCM thinks you are being abusive, and either pulls timing or closes the throttle body on ETC LS2's to kill power. You may drive forever without ever realizing what TM is or does, until you experience a vehicle back-to-back with the TM removed....Major Difference!! Instantly wheel spin is available at low speeds and WOT up-shifts feel much stronger and will produce wheel spin as well. Applying a custom tune will make available throttle response improved in those with electronic throttle body's Drastically!!!! If you command WOT with your right foot, you get WOT, not what the PCM feels like giving you!
I would remove it and not think twice.Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

I was always told the only dumb question is the one you don't ask lol. most the time I get on here and look around someone has already asked the question i was wondering about, but then the answers they get make me have 5 or 6 more questions. You guys have been alot of help for me, I just hope I can turn around and help someone else in return.
