I have a 2002 svtf sonic blue and I havent done that much to it since I bought it. (8 months ago) And my engine feels kinda stuburn when running in 1st gear but once on mid 2nd or 3rd its runs. What can it be?

How many miles does it have?
What kinds of mods are on it?
Have you replaced the timing belt?
Have you changed your gear-oil in the past 20k miles?
etc
I just got it like 6 months ago. It has 116,000 miles, havent done any type of mods yet, I havent replaced the timing belt, and no I havent touched the gear oil at all.

What do you consider stubborn?
I consider stubborn as a slow launch. Like you have to step on it so the rpms can go up and move. But once on 2nd or 3rd gear rpms reach 5000 to 6000 and shifts pretty good. its just in 1st gear.

I am Tom and can help with your tuning

Like Viper said get that timing belt changed ASAP , If it was to brake you will have 16 bent valves and have to pull the head

Then contact me for a tune which will help your take off in the SVT an LOT , add a 180 deg thermostat and a set of motorcraft SP463 spk plugs , do this and you will be MUCH happier with your SVT
