You are exactly right , you don't need the switch if we can find an ignition 12volt supply that doesn't go to 0 volts when cranking , as you said you can forget the relay & just fit the switch if you like , I just ran out of time & it was raining so it was a quick fix .

I was just thinking.. Ive had my ride since 06 and ive never pulled fuse11.. I run my car like I stole it and I can tell you I love how my CP does great things like when iam going down the hwy at lets say 80 or so and if I start breaking my transmission switches into a lower gear..Kinda like its anticipating me hitting the gas.. what will this mod do?
thing is Herb, the thing is adaptive....it learns the driver & traffic conditions....if you pull the fuse & then immediately drive like youre on fire, thats what it learns. Gradually it adapts cos generally we get stuck in traffic, or speed limits, so over a week or so it drops back into 'granny' mode
heres the benefit......pull the fuse & immediately drive like an axeman is chasing you. If it performs better than it does now, youre in clover. If it doesnt, it wont matter, because it will relearn how you drive now, & in a couple of weeks it'll return to what youve got at the moment, no harm done. Thats why we pull the fuse so often, because gradually the car returns to bumbling round
I was just talking to a friend about this and he says that it has something to do with knock retard and that the motor will have more knock until the ecu changes it and he said thats where you gain and loose power?..Thanks for taking the time to explain this to me!
thats doesnt sound quite right I'm afraid...I dont think it has anything to do with knock, unless thats a fuel adaptive catered for in the pcm.... mostly its the tranny

I gave mine a pull yesterday, and now with ESP ON it still spins on take off and pulls hard till I let off at 120 km/h I find for a luxury car its damn impressive!

Prompted by a mention of 'Fuse 11' by Uk Chrysler 300C, I did a bit of digging around the forum to see what the fuss is all about (apologies to anyone who has seen posts about it in other sections of the forum).
Basically, pulling Fuse 11 from the fuse box for about 15 seconds and replacing it, resets the adaptive gearbox from lazyboy/granny mode to looney tunes mode (aka default, aggressive setting).
If you lift the fusebox cover from under the bonnet, locate Fuse 11 from the fusebox lid (its a yellow 20amp jobbie), do the business and away you go.
As a further accomponyment, some people also recommend recalibrating the happy pedal at the same time. To do this, turn the ignition on (but don't start the car), wait for the idiot lights to go out, slowly depress the happy pedal into the carpet, slowly lift the pedal up again, turn off the ignition, then start the car normally.
A quick word or warning !!!!!!!!!!
If the road is slightly damp and you have the Traction Control turned off, its VERY easy to get the big fella sideways.
Phasone is correct about switch / 12 V AND relay, you can not put 20 amps on a simple switch, you risk to get a fire in the switch (and car)
Also, very clean installation with the relay ,as fuse 11 is integrated in it.
WANTED BADLY : DEAD or/and ALIVE ! LOL :
a wire with 0 volt at key off/key out and 12 volts at acc/ignition/cranking !
No, I appreciate that you should use normally use a relay in any switched circuit, what I was trying to illustrate was that this particular relay design could have been autonomous, without a switch being needed at all - no holes in the dashboard, no risk of hitting the switch in motion etc
