Electronic Throttle Controller

I was looking at purchasing a Blitz controller and ran across this one on E-Bay. They call it an RS type controller. Does anyone know if this is an equivalent to the Blitz? It is significantly cheaper at $72.00

The Blitz unit is plug & play, made specifically for the Yaris. The eBay unit is a generic unit made to cover many models and manufactures so its probably a gamble how well it will work.
The eBay unit also says "Modification REQUIRED". That may just mean you have to rewire a plug or it might be far more work than that. Maybe someone else with direct knowledge of this unit will chime in.

$72 vs. $300+ is worth investigating though.

Nothing about the unit above. I'm told Blitz doesn't make one for the Yaris anymore and there are several folks out there looking for a used one.

It seems for price difference, I will give it a shot and let everyone know if it works. Thanks for the feedback.

Electronic Throttle Controller

I decided on purchasing another unit off e-bay. It was the S Flat controller from freepower. It has plug and play installation and programming the unit was simple. I have had all day to test the modes and it works. The unit inproves throttle response.

This combined with my AEM cold air intake make it feel like a different car. None of these things improve power but the improved throttle response makes the car much more fun to drive.
