Default Anyone else have this problem?

Preface: I have 13 Ram Sport Crew Cab, 8 SPD Trans 5.7L

Only Mod: Magnaflow Muffler swap and Y-Pipe both purchased from Bully's.

Issue: At light throttle, say in a parking lot occasionally it feels as if there is a shutter in the pedal, like the truck is not getting enough fuel. I also get it sometimes when the trans switches into too high of a gear (say I am doing 45 and it goes into eco)...

I did not notice this before the muffler/y swap so its just weird. I figured I'd get use to it but not so much.

Thoughts? Thanks for the help in advance.....

I'm betting it's just your MDS kicking in. You'll probably hear it more with your modified exhaust than with stock. Try manually putting your trans on "8" so it still shifts through the gears without MDS kicking in, and I'll bet you won't notice the shutter or too high of a gear feeling.

ok I will give it a try, I guess that crimped Y actually served a purpose it seems.

Thanks
