I notice some performance in ECT mode.. but I think that the overdrive button has a lot to do with shifting too. Makes thing a little quicker when you pass someone... just be careful about reving to high
Like most things you can do with a car--I think it makes things feel faster though they're really not by any appreciable amount.
My friend and I are going to compare if any of the little things like the ECT button, a K&N filter, a clean throttle body, and a new fuel filter can actually make a difference by racing my camry against his 2002 Corolla S (we raced before without any of that stuff and he won...though we didn't actually have a finish line...and some jackass in a BMW decided he was racing as well and made it quite clear just how easily he could kick our asses).
