    Low end torque for street fun

    I read on another forum that if you put the car in sport mode
    then hold the traction control switch up until it displays "AdvanceTrac off"
    that this moves the torque into the lower RPM Range, any truth to this ???

    Doubtful. AdvanceTrac has nothing to do with the torque curve; it's stability control, intended to help keep you from spinning the car off the road.

    I was thinking that if I were going to use this car to drag race as opposed to a road course I would put a lot more "gear" in it.

    There is no adjustment on the GT350 that will change the actual power or torque output of the engine. The different driving modes will affect the throttle response, steering, sound and suspension. Anything other than that is happening in your imagination. The easiest thing you can do is put 100+ octane gas in the car, the computer seems to like that and will respond by changing the timing curve providing a possible 10-15 HP increase.

    ^^ x2 ^^

    The modes change how linear the throttle may feel, but it does not change the tune.

    What about an SCT Tuner X4

    It claims 32 HP and 36 TQ with performance tune.

    I would look for some third party test of this device before investing. I personally have a difficult time believing that one can get such gains for $400 from a tune alone.

    That will improve performance, but be aware, once you install an aftermarket tune it will provide Ford with a reason not to honor the drivetrain warranty if something happens to the engine. Once a tune is installed they can detect the modification, even if you go back to the stock tune. The chance of a good tune causing a problem is really no greater than keeping the engine stock. The risk is a decision you need to make for yourself to balance the slight increase in power against the cost of ownership of any problems.

    I wish I could get some throttle response. Ford ramps it, regardless of setting.
