How exactly does torque management work (I have a 2011 1500 4x4)? Does it limit engine power via ECM or does it control the throttle position? I monitor throttle position % with my Trinity, and noticed that while climbing a hill the throttle % will change when the truck downshifts even if I don't move my foot.

So with all that being said and if the latter is how it works, could torque management theoretically be disabled with a drive-by-cable throttle body swap? Or did I just waste my time typing all of this

It does that because the engine rpms are lowered due to the downshift and needs less air than before, it helps with air to fuel ratio. With a cable driven throttle the air to fuel ratio would be foot controlled...

I helps keep the AFR in check and so you don't run too lean at low rpms to much air is really bad and can damage the motor.
