Please see Vortex' testing results also.

I wasn't going to release this testing since I find it really boring. It also seems like an ALP promotion. But I am getting a lot of requests for this info. So here it is. Don't expect any formatting. I really wasn't expecting to release this test at all.

Test vehicle was a 2017 Mercedes Benz GLS 550 with 2 standard + 1 TX head ALP setup front and rear.

120830


Test was also repeated on a Ford F-150. Same front and rear 2 standard + 1 TX ALP setup.
120831

So there is clearly an issue with my rear in my F-150. I will be revisiting this soon. Most likely it's a placement issue as it turns out my TX is extremely recessed and not pointing straight.

My point is, everyone MUST test their install after they install! Or else you may encounter the problem I have here and not realize until you get a ticket. Don't let this happen to you and schedule a test with your local CM tester!

Update 06/02/2019
I have replaced the TX head on the F-150 as well as the splitter. This is the new results. Again I will reiterate you must get regular testing to make sure you don't have issues like this.

Here's K40 results. Were intended as private testing. But results made public since Vortex published his test. Some of you on this forum has seen this before.

For moving big thing. I'm not very fond of it to be honest. Horrible transmission. And too many sharp edges in the passenger compartment.

As I saw in each of our testings with proper install.
No surprises.
Rear should be easy troubleshooting. Wish I am there to find out why it was IPT. Check the wiring!!!

Added K40 test on here that was released previously only to select advanced members.

shooting. Wish I am there to find out why it was IPT. Check the wiring!!!
I'm going to do some extensive testing soon. It was fine but one day I was getting non stop error 2. Replaced that sensor, but the PT remained. I'll figure it out. thanks.

Oh interesting! So you were able to get some DETC jamming with the K40? Well that's good news. Mine didn't even alert, haha.

When I tested months ago ago with the oldest common version of the DETC it didn't alert to that either most of the time. Sometimes it would but it would IPT.

The K40 system (I hope and not the ALP)?



@PY004 - What is the configuration of the K40 system you tested? It may be worth editing in the first post. Front Triple + Rear Dual? And were the heads g5 Difusers or their newer Difuser Optix? I'm just curious to get some reference as to what exactly was tested for kicks and giggles.

@PY004 boring perhaps. Informative defiantly! And yeah I thought your rear heads looked a bit in but your the expert not me so I kept it to myself! :drinking:
