Isn't that something you have to tell us after you've found out one way or the other?

If you treat the throttle like a light switch, either off or full-on, it will be. But if you take the time to develop a little better "feel" for when traction is about to go away on you, it won't have to be.

What do you want to ultimately do with the car? Modding the car with no real goal in mind is pretty much wasting money and could be detrimental to your overall goal.

Also, what's your budget? How much you can and are willing to spend is going to be a big factor in what your next step is.

The stock lcas are a joke...for any type of performance driving...they are cheap and take a hour to install

I've seen videos of a high 12 with intake, tune, radials, 4.10s. I have frpp cams instead of radials and traction from a dig is nonexistent. I wish I had some tires, I'd be gettin it. haha I wanna do the suspension work as well but for now its just a DD. I wanna see it at the track soon.

A few ideas for you:

Steeda chromoly lower control arms (helps eliminate wheel hop), Steeda CMCV delete plates, Steeda underdrive pulleys.

Shoot me a PM if I can help you with anything.

Lower control arms are a must. It eliminated my wheelhop and I only have 3.55s.

Also love my Shaftmaster driveshaft. Cutting 20lbs. Of rotating mass out is going to help in whatever modding direction u go

In the manifold you have butterflies that open and close. The plates delete those to free up air flow.

See below, that is essentially what it is. The delete plates are located where the intake runners meet the heads. In '09 Ford molded these into the actual intake manifold.

Our plates delete these 'butterflies' and allow air to flow more freely with less turbulence.
