Replace the stock front engine mount with a solid one (if it hasn't been done )
I got the TurboTech Racing mount several years ago. Vast improvement.

Have you read the owners manual ? The SS allows several options on using the traction control and stability systems.

Oh yeah. Forgot that you've got a tune. Disregard my post above because your tune may have changed the stock settings and perimeters.

But. The upgraded engine mount would be a good investment if your's still has the stock one.

His problem has nothing to do with this. Correct it and then spend money elsewhere.

???
His post #32 about torque steer above. Changing the front mount does help with that. I changed mine. Help reduce torque steer. Also eliminates any of the "wheel hop" if he has that.

Does the HPFP have the insulator in it ? To suppress the noise?




Injector Pump Noise Reduction Cover 12628069

Might be the source of the noise

Traction control off launchs pretty straight. But Iím still going to do that solid mountl and probably the rear sway bar thinking about some coil overs but I donít see any specifically for this car
