    Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here here with the MSD Launch Master 2-Step Rev Limiter for 1999 to 2010 V8 Mustangs. The MSD 2-step is going to be for the '99 to 2010 owners out there that are looking to create a consistent, reliable launch on the track, strip, or even on 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 2-step or a launch control or a stutter box is a simple design, but it's helpful to the performance enthusiast that wants to have more consistent performance. The 2-step will give you the ability to define your launch RPM that the device will maintain 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 you're waiting to leave. If you have an NA setup, this just makes it easier for you to dial in that perfect launch RPM where you have a smooth, consistent launch with maximum power and no wheel hop. And, of course, that's gonna lead to faster 60-foot times at the strip, or pushing you into the first corner faster, or hell, maybe you 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 2-step situation by cutting fuel, but anyone in their right mind wouldn't do it that way. It's dangerous and it's not a good way to do it. So the device will intercept the spark signal from the ECU and it will modify it, which actually leads to a misfire to hold the car at the desired launch RPM. The MSD is easy to set launch RPMs. There are two dials where the big RPM range that moves 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 also helpful for the street cars that want to use this. As far as price, the 2-step from MSD is going to cost you a little over $200. So the install here is not difficult. 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 fit harness plugged into your coil wires, mount the module, and run a ground. You need to run the wiring into the cabin and tap into the clutch switch, so you're looking at some light wiring, nothing too technical, though. Overall, this is a one-wrench install on our scale here and should take you about just an hour to complete. 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 it works by cutting spark, not fuel, for a safer 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 V8 Mustang.

    Easy To Set. The MSD Launch Master Rev Limiter is easy to set with two built-in rotary dials ranging from 2,000 to 11,900 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 1999 to 2010 modular V8 Mustangs with a coil-on-plug system. Including the GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, SVT Cobra and Shelby GT500 models.

    So after looking at the installation notes; it said that it may ruin your cats - i understand that. Someone i know who has a 2015 gt said that in order for me to buy and install this I'd have to get rid of my cats completely. Does anyone know if this is true?

    Alex

    • The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter does not require the removal of the catalytic converters, however, since you will run the risk of damaging them, it would not be a bad idea to remove them completely. With this said, you can still use your catalytic converters, and will not affect the operation of the rev limiter module.

    I've got a 2006 GT but with the 2010 GT500 motor. Did it work on it ?

    JimboGT500

    • The MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter (99-10 V8) will work with a 2010 GT500, or a 2006 GT. However, we can't guarantee that this will be a direct fit because the vehicle has been so heavily modified off of its original platform.

    • This MSD Launch Master 2 Step Rev Limiter has been test fitted for the 99-10 V8. That is what we recommend for fitment. There may be power limits or connection issues with anything out of that year and model range.

      2007 shelby gt 2 step

      pretty easy install overall, everything is a plug and play other then running your power wire through the fire wall and then tapping it into the power wire above the clutch on the clutch switch, took about an hour to install. and of course your not getting any more power but it does help with launch control big time and when you go driving around colleges at night to scare the girls with the nasty 2 step pop and flames.

      Difficult to install

      The MSD 2 step comes with very vague installation instructions and took longer than it was supposed to. I experienced lower 60ft times at the strip and faster 1/4 times.

      amazing

      it sounds amazing, just make sure you got some tires to hook. i’m running some 295/50/15’s and it hooks as soon as you let that clutch out. install takes about 5 min if you know which wire to connect to the clutch.

      Works great. Sounds great.

      I have a 4.6 3v swapped F100. It's better described as a S197 Mustang with a bed. I set my launch rpm to 3K. Bam! It runs very hard. American Muscle has been good to me except being involved with Bama. Bama hasn't helped one bit.

      Revs to the set rpm and then has a noticeable missfire but still revs higher. Dials for adjusting it seen super cheap too. I will adjust this review accordingly If I can get this issue resolved.

      Did not fit

      Supposed to be just a plug and play. The harness did not fit into my factory coils. And the harness on my mustang didn't plug into the MSD. The size itself was too big and the clip was a different style. The coils are still factory, not sure why this didn't work.. seems like an awesome product!

      Must have

      If you really want consistent launches every time then you really need this. This just takes any guessing out of it. Foot to the floor every time. Got quicker reaction times, 60' times and over all better ETs. Super easy to install. Took me just over an hour because I used zip ties to tighten up all the wires at the coils so it all fit under the coil covers. Just take your time, it is a tight fit with the extra connectors and wiring being stuffed under the coil covers.

      Excellent

      This 2-step launch control is excellent! Fyi- the instructions sucked, told me to use switch actuator wire for clutch actuator and made to 2-step stay on even with the clutch out. Once I switched wires everything works perfect! Easy install and great product!

      Easy install!

      Took about an hour to install the 2 step, the wiring in the instructions says to connect the blue and white wire to the clutch switch but I got it all hooked up and it turns out it needed to be the solid blue wire so instead of feeding wires back through the grommet in the fire wall which is a pain, I popped the pins out of the connector and switch the and works like a charm, time to test at the track.
