My local dealer told me right out of the gate "if you install a tune, or ANY drivetrain/suspension/exhaust modifications, we will void all Ford warranties associated with your vehicle".

I really wish there were a list of friendly dealers.

The FRPP tunes do allow you to retain a 3 yr/36,000 mile warranty. But on the down side, they aren't really aggressive tunes, but it still wakes the car up a bunch!

The Pedal Max that I posted will wake your car up and will not void the warranty.

Have you personally used one of these? Sounds interesting.

If this works by enhancing the throttle response at tip-in and partial throttle, my concern might be that it sort of "maxes out" the signal at some point so that you get a dead or saturated zone at or near the point where the gas pedal gets down near the floor. Meaning if it gives you full throttle at something like 80% gas pedal depression, then the last 20% of the gas pedal is just sort of pointless now. When using one of these, has anyone noticed a decreased or flat response when you get really deep in the pedal?

Been covered a million times, so i dont feel like going into detail but either get a tuner, or reset your ECU by disconnecting the battery to get much better throttle response.

I went to a Dyno/Tuner shop in S.C. today and talked to the tuner. Got to pick his brain all I wanted and ogle all the new super chargers, cams, exhaust systems and various goodies...

Gonna PM you about something he schooled me on.

If you don't have a tune yet, you are missing out. If you get a tuner, you can do the KAM reset instead of disconnecting the battery, If it feels like your throttle response is sluggish or car is slower. Also when you get use to your car/its power...if feels like it's lacking but it's not. Go drive a slow 4 banger for a month, then jump back into your car.

Regarding PedalMax or SprintBooster, I was set on spending the $300 to try it out, but I came across this cheap substitute to improve the throttle sensitivity. The guy who came up with the mod equated the throttle lag with our acceleration pedal having some dead space. It's like when you flick a light switch, there's a fractional distance the switch travels before the light turns on/off. I did this ghetto mod myself yesterday and tried out different thicknesses of the tape (you'll know when you've put too much!), and my throttle response does feel a bit more responsive (the improvement is enough for me to spend the $300 I set aside for the SprintBooster on something else). Best of all, if you don't like the mod, you can always just remove the tape (no harm done).

Anyway, check out posts #3, 11, and 41.

Any experience with this? - Forums at Modded Mustangs

Wow, just get a Bama tune and be done with it.


No need for anything else, and there's many tunes to choose from.
