Sprint Booster anyone?

I've heard nothing but good reviews for these things, and my friend has one in his BMW, its basically an electronic module which overdrives the signals sent by the DBW system. It makes the throttle much more responsive and reduces the slight lag we all hate.

But, they don't make them for any Toyotas... I've just emailed them to ask if they ever plan to, so let's keep our fingers crossed!

how is the signal altered in order to make it "quicker"?
all it is is 1 or 2 potentiometers in the thorttle pedal that lets the throttle body know how to move the butterfly. how slow could that be???

I would love one of these assuming the price is not too cost prohibitive.

There is definitely a little bit of lag there. For example, when rev matching in my car I have to blip the gas and hope I nailed it, because by the time the engine responds to my foot I'm already letting off the clutch. Granted I'm comfortable enough in the car now to know within a few hundred RPM how much I gave her, but still, it would be nice if it was instantaneous. I'm listening Thomas.

Yes, but it is not adjustable. From what I understand there are two models, the "mild" and "aggressive", so you buy the chip that suits you.

You'd be disappointed to find that $330 buys you a little plastic plug that weighs next to nothing. But it definitely changes the throttle response, fooling the ECU into thinking you're stepping on your accelerator than you really are.

yes, now Blitz and Pivot have similar devices with several degrees of adjustability (even economy modes that reduce throttle response), far more interesting!
