I'm just copy/pasting from another thread here, but try this:



  • Find an empty parking lot and try this:


Make sure the X-Mode switch is turned OFF.
This procedure is best performed in an open parking lot area where the vehicle can be driven in circles without any interference from other traffic. Do NOT attempt this procedure on public roads.
The following transfer clutch break-in procedure may have to be completed more than once to obtain the desired results.

  1. While holding the steering in the full lock (left or right) position, drive the vehicle in “D” range at about 3 MPH
  2. turn the steering wheel to full lock in the opposite direction to complete a “Figure 8”.
  3. Vary the vehicle speed by accelerating and braking.
  4. After completing about 10 figure eights, road test to confirm if the condition has changed.
This procedure may have to be performed more than once to achieve the desired results.

Perhaps look into a Banks PedalMonster. Has various settings to choose from and does not alter the factory settings. However, this will not change, how the CVT performs if this is what you are experiencing. Throttle Sensitivity Booster sends a different response signal to the throttle controller

There's this unit. A friend of mine has one on his Outback XT and seems to like it. He uses it to get rid of the feeling of dropped power during low speed acceleration (feels like it shifts too early).
