Needs a specific tune... Other than that, they've been shown to to improve HP and TQ across the entire RPM range.

I have not experienced any downside after installing this mod. Only downside might be that the only way you can run the car on your stock tune again is to re-install the stock CMCV plates.

The plates produced a notice gain in power, especially around 4000rpm.

they were designed to help the part throttle low rpm torque.

So I would assume that removing them would reduce the low end torque under the same throttle openings.

That was the theory but dyno testing has actually shown hp and tq increases accross the entire range.

How long did it take you to install the plates? Mine are still sitting in the box. Just need some motivation to start

Takes about 1.5 hrs start to finish including beer breaks. Hardest part is getting the "c" clips loose from the actuator arms. Stock gaskets are reused in the new plates. You will need a retune for the car to run properly with them though.

Can one use these CMCV plates with an upgraded throttle body? Where exactly do these CMCV plate go and what do they do?

Cool. I've already had my dyno tune adjusted for the plates. Will just need to pop that on the xcal and load it up after the install.

Yes you can... The delete plates replace the stockers which sit right under the intake runners.

You have to have the tune set to adjust for the plates to be in the 'always off' position. The Spanish Oak processor will not react well if you don't and the car will run very poorly. You need a specific CMRC delete tune.

I just removed the entire assembly all at once, with the clips installed, actuator motor and all !!
