I think that is a smart move.BTW, ordered a VCMuzzler II on the weekend, hope to have it delivered before this weekend to install.
After reviewing how bad the VCM / ECO is on this forum, Im convinced.
Also the fact that my engine needed piston rings replaced under a recall for excessive oil consumption.
Those idle cylinders let the piston rings flop around.
Time to disable that nonsense!
I did this 3 years ago with mine (using resistors) and it will currently only come on then summer in low speed traffic uphill (gets a bit hotter). I figure it is not an entirely bad thing to have the mechanical components for VCM operate for a short spell from time to time. Keep the parts moving and all.
