    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 2015 5.0L Coyote V8 Mustangs with a coil-on-plug system.

        Will this work for a automatic 2014 Gt mustang?

        • The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter (11-14 GT) will only work with the manual transmission.

        can i hook this to a 2016 mustang gt?

        • The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter (11-14 GT) will be designed for only the 11-14 mustangs. This will not work for your 2016 mustang.

        Should this be used with factory exhaust? I feel like it would foul the O2 sensors and cats pretty quick.

        • This would not be ideal for the factory exhaust and would be recommended on at catless set up.

        Does this come with a switch that would allow to turn it on or off from the inside ?

        • The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter does not come with a disable switch.

        Helpful (2)

        How does this work when downshifting ? Will it act as a rev limiter only when stationary or as soon as the clutch is engaged ?

        • The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter will limit RPM by cutting spark, so when shifting, while it will be active, it will not have an effect on RPM since when the RPM is coming down, spark is not utilized.

            It was kinda difficult to install at first then but I need up making it work no where to put the wires through the firewall on the 2016 so I have it through the fender and the door for now but it works well it will shoot a flame every once in a while

            Awesome!

            Fairly simple and straightforward install for the most part. I wired mine to the clutch so the worst part was working under the dash. I found a video of a guy installing it on a 2013 GT, I can't remember the exact color of the clutch activation wire I tapped in to but I know it was the striped one. There's only two wires coming off the top of the clutch so you have a 50/50 shot. I set mine at 2600 RPM, I have full exhaust, CAI and a tune. Launching with this is extremely helpful.. gunshots and flames are a plus as well lol. If you have it set low and if you rev match your downshifts you'll sometimes get a ridiculously loud backfire lol. If you did your research like I did I'm sure you've come across forums saying that the 2 step damaged motors or broke OPGs (oil pump gears). I've been running this for about 3 weeks and so far I haven't had any problems whatsoever. Only thing I can say is don't abuse it.. Don't sit on the limiter for 20 seconds straight.. don't set it extremely high.. just use common sense and you'll be fine.

            Sounds amazing, shoots flames. Only problem was that it gave me a misfire on cylinder 3. So I googled the problem and it told me to flip the connections from the box to the coils, and it fixed the problem
