I was thinking of investigating this. I just didn't have the **** to do it. You're right though. NO amount of tuning could possibly compensate for a physical thing such as this. It's really odd that Ford hasn't revised this.

I think its because everyone with a GT has just accepted it as the way it is.. i don't know if the V6 guys and gals are affected the same way as well. I bet if a big enough stink was raised somthing would get done.

True, true. Just like that front-end thunk.

I'm really thinking I need to try this. Either this weekend or next.

i asked my friend if he had the lag on his v6 tonight. he said he definitely has lag as well.
Ford should put out a TSB or something.

IMHO Ford will NOT put out a TSB! They built it like this!!
I might just order one and do it then putinto my cars.

Great Tip, Find, and Write up! Thank you!

The lag will not get a TSB because it is not a fault. Its just a by product of drive by wire, and every car that has DBW has a lag of some type. It may be less pronounced but its still there.

Great discovery and write up. My tune eliminated virtually all of my lag, but it couldnt hurt to check this out. Some more detailed pics with labels and such would be nice as well, if someone gets around to doing it. Thanks Tube.
