It's learning to operate with more air coming in and adjusting the fuel table for a better air/fuel ratio.

Do you have an exhaust and a programmer on the truck?

Update:

I've put about 5000 km on since the install (3500 ish miles), and it's really smoothed out. No programmer, and I've kept it in tow/haul mode the whole time, sounds terrible when the mds kicks in. Seems to get better mileage now towing my boat in tow mode than it did with no load and mds activated..... (Hydrostream Vision with 200hp merc efi) Anyways, like the combo, sounds better, get better mileage, and definately gets more looks!

Im guessing that the MAP sensor is not facing the correct direction i would check that first. Never adjust fuel with out a AFR kit cause you can really screw things up specially if you dont know what ur doin.
