View Full Version : Acceleration delay.

07-23-2005, 09:18 PM
Hey fellas. I'm a noob. I pick up my 99 snake on monday. I had it this weekend for test driving and i noticed that the acceleration seems a bit delayed. It's bone stock and flawless with 32k miles. What mod would i need to remedy this? Throttle body?

Thanks for the reply. Well, I'd like it to be very responsive but still have good cruis-ability. Should i go with the typical 3.73? or 4.10? I'm kinda thick headed about cars. I don't know ALOT. I know enough to learn and learn more!

With these cars you want to go with the atleast the 4.10's. These cars love to rev. Alot of other members have gone with atleast 4.10's or even 4.30's or 4.56's. But I suggest don't go any lower than the 4.10's, if you daily drive it both the city and highway. JMHO.

Hope this helps. Some others should chime in here that have done gears swaps in '99-'01's and give their opinion.

With my 01, I found that Irridium plugs seem to improve the responsiveness a bit. If you get them, do not over gap them. They should be left at 0.030 to 0.035. Also, get yourself a torx security bit so that you can remove the MAF sensor for easy cleaning. Clean it with electrical parts cleaner (do not use throttle body cleaner as some will leave an oil residue). Of course the air filter is another thing to change if you desire. I did not really notice much of a difference with the paper or cotton gause type. I do like the GREEN filters over the K&N simply because they fit the air box better and that is the only type that will fit in my 04.

hey man go with the FIPK performance intake form K&N. This will improve your throttle response more than anything for the money.
