Default RPM-based AE Anyone using it with success?

See my signature for car specs but when playing with MAP, TPS and RPM based AE I felt that RPM based AE allows me to cruise without the feeling that the throttle was sticky and non-progressive and the car was being held back. I did get some judder when lightly rolling on the throttle from cruise but I guess that can be tuned out given some effort. When playing with MAPdot and TPSdot settings, the car didn't really really resond any differently.

In the end I didn't really try and tune RPM based AE and went with the vTPS with. MPG was shocking though even on a well tuned VE table and I now think it was all down to AE and decel enrich. (MPG was avg. of 22-25)

Im also wondering why diyautotune hand out their base maps for the 1.8 cars with RPM-based ae on compared with the earlier cars that have maps which are set too TPSdot?

Searching suggests that Matt Cramer has no problems with trying to use RPM based AE and some of you even run with all AE settings off!?

If anyone has set-up and tuned RPM-based AE on their motor and is running it day to day with no issues I'd love to see some settings and how far they differ from the PnP values.

Cheers,
Craig

I just switched to VTPS based acceleration and although I did not have a chance to drive the car it does feel better just from the way the motor responds to gas pedal input. My 1.6 always had the flat spot that you describe...

Jerry tuned my AE using RPM based AE on the dyno, said it was fine. Search for my dyno thread, I posted my post-dyno msq in it.
