GSM mods who has them how have they performed?

Just received my ESP Torque Management & Fan Mod Kit from GSM. Has anyone installed one and how does the jeep run? Supercharger should be mailed out soon. That will be installed by a company called Personal Performance owned Mickey Cardena. Has anyone heard of him? He comes recommended by GSM.

Just keep the boost to around 5-6 psi and you should be OK.

Re: GSM mods who has them how have they performed?

I don't get it. How can a switch that disables ESP/ABS (functional equivalent of pulling a fuse) and a switch to manually control a fan have ANY effect on torque management??? I plan to buy this mod but I'm wary since I feel GSM is BSing about what this mod really does???

I also bought the mod...not installed yet. There are many comments about it......some folks have had it installed for awhile. The explanations you are looking for exist. Try the search function.

Re: GSM mods who has them how have they performed?

READ my thread under GSM --
GSM Jeep SRT8 SuperCharger kit


again I am sorry I am duplicating this but I feel I have an obligation as a fellow citizen to not let others be burned like I am/havbe been and to STOP what ever GSM is doing to the masses and say that customers WIN, not their indifferent attitude and still expecting customers inflow!

BEWARE from GSM - I am yet to find a resolution single-handedly with my Bank/AMEX and lawyer or until they contact me (which seems unlikely) while they have over $20K of my $ already... so far I have spend with them almost $30K - so imagine how they would treat smaller player/customer who would spend less on a kit or even a part....

M3K Beater; SRT8 sharked soon

A thread about the fan mod: GSM FAN MOD Thread
(note that many of the posters have reports they 'like it,.... but it has burned out the fan' or something like that)


And here is a little ditty about my experiences with GSM: Blue Board

And a review I wrote later: My Experience with GSM

ge2 - WOW
I am stunned to see all of this - its funny how you dont see something until you EXPERIENCE it and then all of a suddon there is a WHOLE UNDERWORLD who shares same pain and agony. - - THANKS FOR SHARING Buddy!

Could you be so kind and Post a link to this frorum from the Blue Board and etc... so we can get maximum exporsure of this and HELP others not fall into trap of GSM and maybe this will alert GSM to take us as customers not soi lightly and STOP treating us like this - this is BEYOND REDICULOUS!!!!
I simply cant beleive they have the audacity to give us this attitude repeatedly and for prolonged time while they have our $$$ and STILL expect more business/customers VICTIMS to come to them and shed more $$

I had one on my brother car, first days it was nice to have, but then the traction system start to have problems, i have reported this here on the forum, but GSM didnt give a dam on replying. only our lovely moderators who advised me. I had the car to the dealer and they said (after many tests) that there is something gone wrong with the traction system and the rear diff. its still not fixed waiting for parts.
hope this helps.

BTW, check out other members experience with GSM.
