Hi guys im wondering what i can do to improve the lagged throttle response on my Gen2 5.0?
What i ended up doing is slotting the airbox like the lexus F type and some k&n. Fixed the lagging rpms, however mpg is 1mpg lower. Not a big deal for me as long as the throttle response is 50% better.Confirmed. I just installed a Sprint booster and my car feels like a just did an engine swap to a larger engine going by how the engine now feels off the line. I now actually feel that I have a 400+ hp engine.
Slotted or putting holes in the stock air box is an old trick that have been used for years and many owners have claimed to have much success in gaining horsepower and engine response by doing it. My cousin swear that he gained a lot of horsepower by putting holes in his old 2005 VW GTI air box. He claimed his turbo spooled up faster which made more power.What i ended up doing is slotting the airbox like the lexus F type and some k&n. Fixed the lagging rpms, however mpg is 1mpg lower.

Yes, NOT the top. Im actually also reading in some mustang forums on adjusting the brushes inside the pedal box to improve lag as well. Will start a new thread once attempted.LOL. Do not forget to mention that you put holes on the bottom section of the box under the air filter.
We do not want anyone put holes in the upper section over the filter.
I went with Sprint booster V3 because it was smaller and have gone through a few innovative changes over the years. A few other similar products seems less refined. However, I bet they all work in a similar manner including the VR Power Pedal.Sprint Booster or VR Power Pedal (Vivid Racing)

Well, that will work I guess.Felcro, beside the console or below the start button the dash. The LED is actually a button for the different modes.
