The 4.7L doesnt have MDS and it has ECO as well. The ECO Light does not come on in ERS on the 4.7L either.

I never noticed it driving my 2011 Crew around for the first 3 weeks. Once I installed the Magnaflow's, I can tell every time it goes into MDS. It is awful the sound it makes switching back and forth, and the lag you feel when you reach the start of a climb and MDS switches off and throttle is applied.

It is definitely a problem.

In this day and age of technology, it is no longer called a problem. It is referred to as a 'Feature'.

The big issue....getting rid of an unwanted feature.
