Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Stephanie: Hey, guys. Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with the MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter for 2011 to 2014 GT Mustangs. In this video, we're going to talk about the functionality of this two-step module and the install, as well. I'll go over the install in a little more detail later, but I can tell you right now that I'm going to call it a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. The MSD 2 Step is gonna be for the '11 to '14 GT owners out there that are looking to create a consistent, reliable launch on the track, strip, or even the street. This launch control connects to the factory coils. And it works by cutting spark, not fuel. So it's a good option for anyone looking for a safe and effective launch control for their Mustang. A two-step, or launch control, or stutter box, whatever you want to call it, is a simple design, but it's helpful to the performance enthusiast that wants to have more consistent performance. The two-step will give you the ability to find your launch RPM. And the device will maintain it for you. This allows you to hold the car at full throttle while preparing to leave the line, so you don't have to worry about manually holding your launch RPM and watching the tree at the same time. If you have a forced induction setup, this allows you to build boost while waiting to leave. And if you have an NA setup, this just makes it easier for you to dial in the perfect launch RPM where you have a smooth, consistent launch with maximum power and no wheel hop. And, of course, that leads to faster 60-foot times at the street or pushing you into the first corner faster or, hell, maybe you guys just want to have fun on the street. The MSD 2 Step works by cutting spark, not fuel, which is what you want. It is possible to induce a two-step situation by cutting fuel, but anyone in their right mind wouldn't do it that way. It's dangerous and not a good way to do it. So that's why MSD does it through cutting spark. So the device will intercept the spark signal from the ECU. And it will modify it, which actually creates a misfire that will hold the car at the desired launch RPM. The MSD is easy to set launch RPMs. There are two dials with a big RPM range that move in 100-RPM increments. So you can really set your launch RPM where the car performs the best. The other nice thing about this is that it has an LED that will show you when the launch control is active, which is not only helpful on the line, but it's helpful for the street cars that want to use this, too. As far as price, the 2 Step from MSD is going to cost you right in between $200 and $250. So the install here is not difficult. Overall, this is a one wrench install on our scale. It should take just about an hour to complete. You do have a little bit of room to determine how you want to wire this in. But the general idea is to get your direct bit harness plugged into your coil wires, mount the module, and run a grab liner. You will need to run wiring into the cabin and tap into the clutch switch. So you are looking at some light wiring, but nothing too technical. Wrapping things up here, the MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter offers a great way to improve launches. It's easy to install and works by cutting spark and not fuel for safe rev control. You can check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

Consistent Holeshots. Consistent launches and quicker 60-foot times are the goal of every drag racer and now you can have both by simply installing a MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter in your S197 Coyote 5.0 Mustang.

Easy To Set. The MSD Launch Master Rev Limiter is easy to set with two built-in rotary dials ranging from 1,800 to 9,900 rpm in 100 rpm increments. When activated the rpms will be held at the set rpm range allowing you to keep your eye on the "Christmas Tree", not the tachometer.

Easy To Install. The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter connects directly to the factory coils for an easy straight forward installation and features a handy LED that shows when the launch rev limit is active.

Application. The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter is designed to fit 2011 to 2014 5.0L Coyote V8 Mustangs with a coil-on-plug system.

The MSD 2-step is perfect for helping you launch at the track or street, very easy to set your rev limiter and is a good assistance on an automatic car or manual. And the install was super easy.

Great product

Relatively easy install. Put the activation wire through the sound tube hole after I removed it from my 15 gt. Finding the correct wire was a bit of a pain but relatively easy. Highly recommend.

If I tap into the clutch for 2000rpm launches, when I no lift shift, will that work like normal? Or will it rev down to match 2000 Rpm, I'm a quick shifter, but am wondering if that will interfere with my no lift shifting?

Tyler

i will like to buy this product but im wondering when i have it on would the 2 step cause my car to backfire and spit flames if i rev it ?

  • That is totally dependent on your modifications you have done to your vehicle. In general, naturally aspirated cars do not spit flames unless they are running rich.

I install these as instructed and I'm getting a really bad misfire and running rich it's like I lost 2 cylinders and running on 6!! Everything is grounded well I double checked everything I get power and everything it just misfires badly

  • The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter should not be causing a missfire. Please contact our Customer Service department for further technical assistance, or a possible return.

    Don't Buy

    I have always been an American Muscle customer because I love the products. However, I am very disappointed with this product. I had the MSD 2step installed at my local Mustang performance shop. The MSD launch control was defective. I processed a return, and I had another one sent out to me. And again it was also defective. I ended up just returning it for my money back. From the time I ordered it to the time I got my money back it was almost a month. The two-step was defective, due to it would cause my Mustang to misfire at idle and while driving. The 2step would be cutting ignition without activating the 2step and gave a huge loss of power. We verified that the 2step was defective because we installed a 2step off of my friends Mustang and it worked flawlessly. Overall I would rate this product a 1 star.

    Waste of 250 bucks. Instead of cutting spark only when engaged it constantly cuts spark killing acceleration.

    Good product but a little expensive

    Took almost a hour, easy install basic plug in stuff. I used a button for my activation because i feel it will be better so u dont accidently use it when you dont want to hooked straight to the clutch. Overall its worth it, I do not know how my car launches yet bc its parked for winter, aka michigan snow and salt.

    Does what it's supposed to

    The product itself works good but the installation instructions are something else. It took me forever to install trying to locate the correct wire to tap into for the clutch pedal. I ended up giving up and wired the blue wire to a switch and called it a night. Only downfall is I have to turn off the switch after I launch or it will rev limit my second gear. Also you really smell the fuel dumping into your exhaust if you rev it for 3 to 4 seconds.

    awesome for track cars

    In order to use this 2 step with your clutch petal you will need a MSD specific relay which can be found on their website. Or you can use a momentary switch like i did, when the button is pressed that 2 step is enabled. which is what most people do.

    Great product!

    Install is fairly easy, the hardest part is finding the right wire to use for the box to know when the clutch is engaged. Over all the system works exactly as its supposed to. for my 2013 mustang, I wired into the clutch safety switch. (Tells the car that the clutch is pushed in when starting the car)

    Great for consistant launches

    Very simple install, plug and play device. It would of taken less time had the instructions been more clear. It will tell you to use the blue/white hot wire connected to a 12v source in the clutch pedal switch. I tried both clutch wires; one is for releasing cruise control when the clutch is depressed the other is a nuetral switch. It would not work, the LED would just stay illuminated or flicker when the clutch was depressed as the instructions say it will be off when the car is running and illuminate when the clutch is fully depressed. I did some research and found that others had connected the blue ground wire to the bottom blue/grey nuetral wire on the clutch. I did the same and it worked the first time flawlessly. No issues!!
