So, I ordered the restrictor and kept driving the car while waiting for it to be delivered... as I drove it the car got better and better so now it feels like I would expect it to feel and I never got to install the restrictor.
Weird, the previous owner said he didn't drive it much so maybe all it needed was a bit driving.
No more hanging, no more revving up when I press the clutch...
I'm liking this car a lot more now.

|perkgana||yeah, I just found them on ebay. and I got the instructions of how to make them too. Supposedly they dont throw any CEL's or hurts the car in anyway. Might be worth trying|

Interesting...can that be used on a SVT?

I'm going to try finding more info on this (check link)
People seem to use it a lot on mustangs. They seem to be really easy to make or cheap to buy.
I bought this car as a daily driver and I promised my wife I will behave and not play with it too much cause I already have a few toys :D So tuning could be fun but then to make it worth messing with it a cold intake and exhaust before the tune would be kind of a good idea.. and then maybe nicer suspension and a rear disc brake conversion and there I go again... wifey will want to kill me and start bugging haha

Tune can get rid of it, and it IS annoying, especially if you're used to using engine braking as much as possible as a habit. The "wait" before it starts idling down after you take your foot off is a pain - by the time it starts to slow down you're ready to grab another lower gear & go through the wait again - since once you touch the gas to rev. match the waiting period starts again...
In "regular" shifting, once I got a tach. installed, I found I had to get off the gas early when shifting to avoid the "bump" in rpm after clutching...
And yeah, it's supposed to be an "emissions" feature from what I've heard.

^ that's what I was wondering too, maybe a tune can stop that.
I'm waiting on a tune till I get a header and better exhaust.

|#1fordfan||haven't done it to mine,but I have heard the computer can be programmed to not do this.|

That I'm not sure of. It would be nice to stop it. It is extremely annoying. Especially with a louder exhaust. You can really hear it hang there pulling up to stops.
I haven't had time to dig into it much other than searching on here for answers.

Thanks a lot, that makes me feel a lot more confident in my car.
Do you know if there is ways of making it not do that? I read somewhere (for mustangs) that you can make a restrictor plate or something.
