    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.

    another question only thing my car has is the cats are in everything else is straight piped, no resonators no mufflers just cats will this product make my car spit flames if i rev it and active it the msd 2 step???

    raul

    • The car may shoot flames when the MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter is activated however, the device itself will not make flames come out of the exhaust. This is a by-product of the vehicle running rich as the revs are limited by the module.

      Defective

      I was really exited about the product, installed the 2 step at my local shop. It’s defective just like the last review I saw on the page. That exact thing is happening to my car. Misfire at idle and while driving. It feels like my car is losing a lot of power. I hope I can fix this problem.

      So firstly, works great. Second- it took 15 minutes to install. FOR ALL 15 OWNERS- USE THE BLUE WIRE TO TAP INTO THE RED AND BLUE CLUTCH WIRE. NOT THE GREEN AND BLACK if you get misfires or engine light- switch the plug harness around that go to the MSD box.

      BEAUTIFUL!!

      The MSD lauch master was a great adder for my car. you never have to worry about your launch at the tree. Also if you're not good with wires, don't panic. I'm probably at the top of the list when it comes to fear of shorting my electronics, but It was so simple that I went ahead and did it for myself. Very simple install. Also if you have exhaust work done. expect a flame show :)

      AWESOME

      Took about 15 minutes to install. Much more consistent launches. Also a nice touch for showing off when revving. Be careful with back fires though i blew one of my exhaust connections apart with a 6k rpm backfire. nice flames though haha. But it works perfectly as advertised and gets the job done with a super simple install.

      Helps off of the line for sure, but still won't solve the problem of a lead foot. Learn how to launch first by yourself, THEN by this product, it's an amazing add on and overall a great product. DO BUY.

      Works on 2015 GT's - Read For Install Tip

      This product works fine on 2015 GT's; contrary to what the compatibility chart says. Just a tip. You need to tap the blue/red clutch wire and not the green/black wire on the 2015s. You also need to use the solid blue wire to tap the clutch wire instead of the blue/white. If you follow the instructions for 11-14s on your 2015 GT it will not work.

      Stay away from MSD

      Upon installation of the MSD 2-step I had several issues with the device. It was lighting up properly when hooked up to the clutch switch however it would not hold the limit at the set RPM and would cause misfire and throw a MIL code. The car ran horribly sluggish the entire time it was installed. Contacted AM two days later to arrange a return and they were very helpful with getting my money back. Great customer service but horrible product!

      Worst part

      I bought this part and had it shipped to me at the exact time. Next day I installed it by my self it took me like 45min or less to get all set up. it worked good at the firs couple hours then i had the engine sing turned on. Two days later the car wasn't passing the RPM i was chosen (4500RPM) even after removing it from the car. Whenever i called the customer service got no answer. And I asked to make sure it didn't need any kind of tune and they said no need for any tune. Safe Your Money On Other Part
