Hello anyone is using this part called pedal commander?
As main advantage:
  • Eliminates Throttle Lag from Your Gas Pedal Making Your Gas Pedal Response More Sensitive
There is no lag from the VCM system, that's a fallacy only promoted by oddyclubbbers. Throttle response controllers are routinely used on many makes, and the owners universally report better throttle results, but it will have to be tested here, with the most favorite guys weighing in, of course. cheapo one, dont know if works: https://www.amazon.com/Throttle-Con...-1-1-5055-173-&vehicleName=2014+Honda+Odyssey

its called disabling the VCM...
why are auto rightists vs science & engineering? vcm or no vcm , i get 8.5 sec 0-60mph runs, same road back to back bothways averaged. why be a fact denier? why apply fact denying to motorcars? i'd enroll in the neraest college for automotive engineering if i were you? & you were my friend. why be political on an auto site, reminds me of ex-wife

To all ... Pedal Commander is geared towards the light turbodiesel truck market (3/4-ton and 1-ton ... and even heavier turbodiesel trucks).

It is not useful for the Odyssey. What's the action we can take on VCM-"equipped" Odysseys to get rid of this lag during that brief transition from less-than-six cylinders back to full V6 capability?



If you have a 2008 or newer turbodiesel truck with DEF, SCR and DPF, sequential turbos, etc., then Pedal Commander is a great product to eliminate throttle lag while "the rest of the installed gear catches up."

You don't need to test it. It's a successful product for the turobdiesel truck market.

For those of you who remember rebuilding the occasional 4-barrel carburetor (or even small foreign 2-barrel jobbies), there was that accelerator pump that allowed you to have decent throttle response until you got the smallest amount of rev increase and vacuum to let the carb "get onto the jets." Pedal Commander, from an electronic diesel injection management perspective, is analogous to that.

Personally, I've never minded easing onto the throttle, towing or not, in a turbodiesel truck and letting everthing spool up and then keeping revs reasonable to allow staying in the narrow powerband through gear changes going up an onramp...

...however, I can see where one has to navigate a cityscape all the time, with stop and go traffic, where Pedal Commander would be helpful.

With you, dont feel any throttle delay on odyssey. I did feel about a tenth sec on camry . it was blamed on e-throtte when new. It died in traffic last week when a rodent got under timing belt for 2nd time, destroyed engine. Probl wanna use rodent tape and spray under hood from now on!

i really dont care what you do, you're a 10000x liar, just like an ex wife! mine saw prostitutes everywhere inside house and car. it's called paranoiac delusions, maybe ask your analyst about that
the EPA has shown interest. illegal to tamper with emissions and engineered economy, sorry!
