    Whoa. My intelligence feelings took a small hit here. I know the engine is to be off. I’ve read this whole thread and even responded in it that I didn’t feel any difference. It’s been 16 months ago since I’d did it last and wanted to go outside and try it again without having to warm it up. Anyways I did it this morning first thing and went out to do some Christmas shopping and it still feels the same. No difference. One thing to note is I don’t have any hesitation or sluggish symptoms so probably wouldn’t feel anything better. Just hope for the best performance possible. Oh and Mike, I’m not trying to be a jerk back at you but you know how the internet voice can be misconceived. Everything is cool.

    I've tried this quite a few times on my own truck, and I've also never noticed any difference afterward. Y'all aren't alone.

    Baaaaaaaaaaa

    I didn't take it as such. Just trying to be thorough on explanations, since other people have taken the time for me and my questions.

    Did it again today slightly different than I did the other day and noticed a difference. Wouldn't say it's night and day, but my throttle response never seemed bad.

    Key all the way forward (before starting the engine) and wait about 3 seconds for gauges to quit moving, press gas pedal slowly (about 4 seconds to the floor) and back up as fast as possible. Key all the way off, then repeat 2 more times.

    Just tried this and felt a huge difference. It's still not the same as a mechanical connection, but the throttle response is significantly improved. I still have a dead spot when leaving from a stoplight/sign, or when leaving from a yield sign, but rolling response is much better.

    Update - ran some errands today, highway and street traffic. Throttle response much better in all conditions. Tip-in throttle input much more sensitive; no longer have to mash the pedal to induce downshifts. May perform this procedure quarterly just to ensure throttle input remains calibrated.
