I replace the transmission fluids with Honda fluid around 50k and have done the diff fluid as well.

I'm going to email the tuning shop I've used in the past to see if K-Tuner can disable VCM since I'm going to be installing that anyway.

Is the main place that you buy S-VCM on eBay? Which seller? I also found this website: S-VCM Controller - Disable VCM / deactivate VCM and stop ECO in Honda Acura. Where is everyone buying it from nowadays?

I ordered mine online from www.svcmcontroller.com it actually shipped from Brossard, QC Canada. It installs super easy but I must have other issue as i can still detect the flutter/vibration at 40 & 70 mph. It is less but its still there.
I just saw this post and wanted to share my experience. I also added S-VCM due primarily to excessive oil consumption. I am still trying to get some more miles on it to see if there is a difference yet, but so far love the power and responsiveness without the ECO mode.

I also had the vibration/flutter at 40mph/70mph and that is an entirely different issue. There are some threads on here about that also that I posted on. Most likely it is your front axle causing the issue. I ended up buying an OEM Honda Left, Right, and Intermediate (center) “half shaft” to finally fix the problem. I also had a motor mount that needed replacing too.

I did confirm that VCM can be disabled through K-Tuner, so if anyone goes that route, wouldn't need to buy S-VCM.

Just drove my new used 2013 CT EX_L AWD home from pickup in Detroit. 93k miles and after 200 miles I can say I am pleasantly surprised with the car overall. Always wanted one but you never know until you finally drive a car. I have 7 days to decide if I want to keep it (Carvana purchase) and I can tell the Eco thing is going to bug me. Its clear I should disable it from all the commentary but is there a clear preference for S-VCM vs VCM Muzzler? Also, I have not found any info as to how it effects gas mileage (it must a little?).

Thanks for any comments.
So what did you end up going with? I just picked up a 2010 Crosstour w 50k miles . Probably should get one of these on ASAP

S-VCM. Easy install and has worked great. I have put 25k miles on the car since I bought it and no issues with the VCM. No real change to mileage either.
