Did mine, at cold start it shook items in the room above the garage and drove my wife crazy. Extremely happy with the option.

I'm planning on removing it because if you have dct, you'll know how shitty it is to drive before it warms up. clutch slips, power is off/on randomly SO ROUGH AND ANNOYING. Plus I don't like the sound, so rattly. This may be different if you have non stock exhaust systems installed. Main reason I want it gone is to smooth out the startup & ride. Apparently cold start causes these issues.

Cold start makes it sounds sick when cold but rattles the sh*t out of my house. And drives like crap but damn it sounds nice with full exhaust

Another guy on the forum said removing cold start solved these issues. I'm not crazy, honest!

I had the cold start removed after installing Akra Evo, but ended up replacing a few weeks later because I missed the sound!

even after you removed cold start? what a disappointment, I thought I could trust the random guy on the internet
I guess I can try it out and just enable cold start again, all the tuners seem really cool about supporting their customers.

I think he meant with the cold start on. Mine is very smooth with it off
