Hallo guys
I have a jeep SRT 2016 and drive a lot on ECO mode. The drone sound, when the egine shifts on 4 cylinders, is disturbing.
Is there any configuration or any trick to drive on 4 cylinders and at the same time to reduce or eliminate this drone sound?
P.S. I have also the custom mode configuration.

i too have the 2016 but I don’t think I hear a drone sound. What’s it sound like? Like exhaust drone?

Thanks Dude for your reply. Yes it sounds like exhaust drone.
i don’t remember fully on the stock exhaust. I’ve had the borla Atak for a good while now. I still get a slight drone even though the company states no drone.. lol I don’t think we can completely delete drone 🤔

I used a tune and turned off MSD... I never liked the way it felt and sounded... even with the factory exhaust... I also think the MDS may shorten the life of your motor...

Get a Diablosport intune and you can turn it off.
I can turn the sound off but the MDS will still function isn't it?
Yon know, I need the MDS to function in order to minimise my fuel expenses, but I want to get rid of this disturbing sound.
Thank you for answering JLinn

If you turn it off with a diablotuner it won't function.
I think if you put the console knob to Sport the MDS is turned off.

The easiest way is just tapping the paddle shifter to put it in manual mode, which will disable the MDS

If you're trying to minimize fuel costs in a vehicle like this, you bought the wrong vehicle. Drive it in custom mode or get the tune someone else mentioned. Drive. Enjoy.

I just drive around in sport mode and it fixes it. Can get away with this in winter due to winter tires in all but the worst conditions when I stick it back in snow mode (the worst conditions are ice)

Going into Sport or Track mode does not disable MSD in my SRT.
Going into Manual Mode does, but then I have to remember to go back into Auto Mode before taking off after coming to a stop......
