I recently had a semi-new tranny (18,000 miles) put in my '97 Escort LX 2.0L SPI which significantly improved my cars accel. My only issue is now I have to really stab my gas petal as far to the floor as possible to reach that high velocity of accelleration.... This wasn't the case prior to the upgrade.

How and what exactly can I adjust to improve the petals response and performance?

A lower resistance intake should remedy this. So will a lighter flywheel. And less weight. And 5 mexicans pusing on the back. Faster, Sanchez!

Try this simple thing first. Have someone push the gas pedal down and you make sure its getting full throttle at the engine. Just an idea.

I think he's talking about his auto tranny's downshift... it used to downshift at part throttle and now it's only doing it at WOT.
