    Hey guys, just wondering is there any way to change the acceleration reaction time? I mean, when i put my foot down it will take a couple of seconds bfore it actually kicks in and goes. Is there a way to change it so when i put my foot down i have instant acceleration??? :confused:

    Nope, you gotta get it bored. Or buy a modified one. I found that hi ratio roller rockers made the throttle response a bit sharper.

    stage 2 cam cai exhaust chip valve springs and roller rockers should give ya a nice kick up the arse also before you buy anything tighten the throttle cable and kick down cable throttle cable is the easiest thing ever to tighten dont even need tools

    B4 you book the car in for that service which takes about half-an-hour to do spend about $14(i think) get a tranny Nulon enhancer/conditioner.You'll be suprised with the result(it works most of the time).

    m8 my 00 VX has instanst thottle response. which can get rather annoying on bends and roundabouts when you just tap the gas it just pull of at once. your lag can be so to with your diff or either that car isnt tuned to the currect setting it should be

    What is a "tranny Nulon enhancer/conditioner?" It hasn't got any thing to do with having a sex change has it?.....Sorry, but seriously what is it? Something to do with the transmission?
    My VX used to miss and hesitate when taking off quickly but a set off Topgun 8mm leads, new plugs and a throttle body clean helped a lot, the missing was so bad that I thought the gearbox was on it's way out, but holden were right, it was the leads, the skinny little 6mm stock GMH leads.

    Use the power button!

    You can get your tranny reset via GMor someone else smarter.

    Mystarted to change ridulously and with a ECU reset it worked like a charm!

    Boys boys.
    The simple and best way to improve take off response is a simple diff ratio change.
    My VT had 3:08 which is standard and all i have done is change it to a 3:45. you would be surprised how much of a grin it will leave on your face when you drive it away from the diff joint.
    BUT a warning: make sure while they have the thing apart they change seals and all the stuff. its worth the extra money now then when you need to do it later.
