Im new to this site. I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2wd Stepside. It has a 4.8 in it. I just heard about Torque Management and I was wondering if I could get a better answer on what exactly it is. Also Im wondering if and how I can get rid of it? Im thinking a programmer......? Thanks.

Here is a post buy Mike Litsch from DiabloSport from GM-Inside news forum on Torque Management
"Torque managent is basically GM's way of putting an end to the fun before it gets started. There are several different scenarios that bring TM into play. Among these are 'abusive launches' and WOT upshifts/downshifts. When TM is enabled, the PCM thinks you are being abusive, and either pulls timing or closes the throttle body on ETC trucks to kill power. You may drive forever without ever realizing what TM is or does, until you experience a vehicle back-to-back with the TM removed....major difference. Suddenly wheelspin is available at low speeds and WOT upshifts feel much stronger and will produce wheelspin as well. Applying the tunes we make available improve the throttle response in these electronic throttle body vehicles drastically...if you command WOT with your right foot, you get WOT, not what the PCM feels like giving you!
In regards to discussion of a 'delay' in power coming on, some of these GM trucks actually do have a lengthy delay before the PCM will allow you to go into power enrichment mode, meaning you are missing out on alot of acceleration. We recently tested an 07 VortecMax on our dyno, and besides the 25rwhp gains up top, we saw as much as 20rwhp and 25-30(!)ft/lbs of torque between 2500-3500rpm as a result of reducing the PE delay time.
Hope I was able to shed some light on this stuff for you guys...lemme know if you have any other questions."
I Hope this helps.
