Throttle Response

Okay so I just spent the last hour looking through the forums trying to find a post in a thread that I had read a few weeks ago. Anyways It seems like when I give the car gas, maybe between 20%-60% throttle (in any gear) it excelerates slower than if the pedal is depressed about 15%. I remember the short of the post being that rerouting the throttle cable helped. I just wanted to know if you guys had any thoughts on the situation. Could it be timing? ( had it set a couple weeks ago but who knows if its right they were in a hurry to get my stang out of their garage lol) I did reroute the cable but havent driven it yet. Thanks for all the past help and continued help guys!

The difference in acceleration is really only noticable over 2700 RPM and if I mash the peddle the car does kick on the torque. Ive only owned the car for about 5 weeks and its has only been running for like 6 days, so I dont really have anything to compare the performance too.

"I had an idle of 1500rpm. And an occasional surge. Stayed that way until I disconnected the throttle cable! Idled right down!!

I pulled the cable backwards out throught he maze of vacuum lines and rerouted it in a nice sweeping way...Perfect idle. No surge. No 1500rpm. Bliss!"

Found this at Help me create the "Surging Idle Checklist" | Mustang Forums at StangNet

But I did this already and it didnt help...

Sounds like a fuel problem

Start with basics. Fuel filter?

I had replaced the fuel filter prior to it, and I should have stated, It is resolved. My timing was off...
