Throttle Plate issues

Recommended Posts

So I was watching the American Muscle stage 1 power pack, and they pointed out how the throttle body partially closes on WOT, and you could see it on the dyno pull they did. Is this something that happens on all 13-14 GT500's? If so, I'm assuming they did this to avoid leaning out at the upper RPM's? So anyway, after they did their stage 1 tune, it seemed to fix it. Question is, if Ford did do this as a preventive to avoid detonation, would tuning that out be a risk? I'm looking to get into a 13-14 GT500 soon and just want to have a few questions cleared up before I get into one. Thanks in advance...

Buy the car and do the stage 3 with the offroad pipe. You will love it!!

I would do more research before I put a canned tune in your car, but that's just me.

I bought all my stuff from Evolution. John lund provides the tune - very well done.

I believe that is one of the "nannies" referred to in some discussions. That is Ford's way of protecting the drivetrain such as clutch, axles, and probably other items. Interesting how Ford programs it in yet tuners often remove it. Hhmmmmm...
