Default POWER/ECONOMY switch... does this thing really work and HOW?

POWER/ECONOMY switch... does this thing really work and HOW?

I've switched this back and forth a few time and don't notice any difference at all in my power. The yellow POWER light comes on when I engage it I just don't know HOW this works and if it's supposed to have any real difference in performance/power when turned on.

Can anyone chime in here and educate me on this?

Thanks.

the car will just shift at higher rpm's and downshift under less throttle. It is a pretty big difference in the way the trans acts.

Oh, got it. So it's more of a tranny issue than an engine issue. How does the OD affect this if any?

Thanks for the heads up.

if you have a manual you don't need this at all, just stop shifting like you are in INITIAL D or Tsukiya san and you will be alright

sorry never had an auto 3s, I was thinking this had to be something only automatics had since you can granny shift and get better economy or shift like tsukiya san and get driftooooo-kiiing performance (and about 5 miles to the gallon lol)
