    I believe I have already made my intro, but still wanted to say hello to all.
    I do have a question about the new '17 GT 350. If someone could point me in the right direction to the forum to address my query, appreciated. Also, not sure how to be notified on threads automatically when responded to. Used to be on few sites but too busy these days. However, with the new car, I have questions.
    thanks
    Fred z

    There are some owners here that might be able to respond. You might also check the fordshelbygt350forum for specific information.

    I have a question, but honestly I am not sure what forum to post, so I will start here!

    Not sure what else to call it. I notice when I take off from start with little pedal pressure the car seems to accelerate decent, but when I press the pedal a little harder there is a point where it seems to bogg.....meaning it doesn't so much accelerate but more seems in the middle of the lite pedal press and the more heavy press. Obviously when firm pressed it roars and accelerates fine...it's just that in between press that sometimes just seems to make noise but not much acceleration
    Hope I explained that right. My uneducated answer would be.........its being caught between lite and heavy pressure and isn't fully getting correct fuel.
    \thanks

    Have you talked with your Ford dealer yet?

    Maybe I am just sensitive to things in cars.........used to have a Shelby 427 roadster....not original......but it had so much power yet there was the same feeling....somewhere between full throttle and lite throttle...there was a momentary bog...as though my pressure giving fuel was just at a point where it was not one or the other. I don't know, just asking if anyone knows my feel on this .
    thanks

    In the past, my usual acceleration lag in a carbureted car was too much fuel being initially dumped in due to too large a carb or the primary jets were too large or opened too much(rich). You might check you spark plugs.
