    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.

        can I use it on an automatic?

        • This item is not compatible with automatic transmission Mustangs.

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

        • 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.

        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?

        • 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.

        Is there any possible way to make this work on an automatic car

        • Unfortunately this 2 step is designed for 1999-2010 Mustang Gt models equipped with the manual transmission. It will not work with an automatic transmission.

        I set up everything as the instructions said to. I have a 2006 mustang gt. The blue wire is connected to the white wire off the top of the clutch switch. The red LED on the MSD two step stays on when the car is on regardless of whether I apply the clutch or not. It does not work and does not limit the revs. 1 answer
        2007 mustang GT 5 speed S197 It’s hooked up, box lights up, ran the white wire with blue stripe to the white wire at the top of the clutch and.... nothing!! Have it set at 3000 and just red lines when fully press in clutch an floor the gas. What am I doing wrong ?? Why am I reading it should be the solid blue wire that runs to the clutch ?? 0 answer

        why is this limited to v8's? is it just because of the coil on plug systems on the v8's or are there othe reasonings? 1 answer

        I am aware that this may do damage to regular cat-converters, but is this the case with high-flow cats as well? I put in quite a bit of work getting my car to snake by emissions testing, and I just want to know what I'm getting into 0 answer
        I am curious as to why you guys are saying this does not work on automatic cars? It will with a stall converter of over 2000, and helps quite a bit on launches. You just have to wire it in a button or into the break pedal. 0 answer

            Great product to start with

            Great product if you wanna try and find that perfect rpm to launch your mustang without spinning the tires off. It is possible to shoot flames as well but you must have a really hot exhaust and no cats off course. Installation is straight forward use the solid blue wire to the clutch peddle you know you did it right if the light lights up when you press the clutch.

            a must for sonsistant launches in bracket racing

            Got this for my wife's '08 Mustang I built her so she can get consistent launches at the tree. Wired it into the brake light since it is an automatic. With the break pedal down, she can hold the gas to the floor and get up on the stall with out breaking the tires loose, when she lets off the brake, it goes strait to WOT and stands the front end up and launches.
