Talking Vitesse Motorsports Throttle Response Controllers are IN STOCK @ Apex!!! $179.99



Vitesse Motorsports Throttle Response Controller (Throttle Controller): $179.99

Are you tired of that seemingly long delay between the time your foot smashes the pedal and the engine responding with that growl? Well now you can have control over that response time with the Vitesse Motorsports throttle Controller.


Explanation of Throttle Response


Throttle response is how fast it takes from the time you mash the accelerator pedal to the time the engine RPM rises and how fast it rises. Throttle response is all about the time delay in the control system which alters the air pressure in the inlet manifold. It's only the time delay between moving the driver's right foot and changing the amount of air available at the inlets.


A more responsive 400hp engine will outrun (other than top speed) a less responsive yet more powerful 450hp engine on the track assuming driver skills and vehicle suspension tire adhesion etcetera being equal in the same car every time.


When you open the throttle it responds by sucking in more air and adding more fuel. The power increase is caused because your RPM's rise. The faster your RPM's rise the faster your car can reach max power.


Cold air intakes / ported throttle bodies / ported inatkes .... will all give some addittional maximum power but a Throttle Controller's biggest benefit is allowing the engine RPM to rise faster which translates to reaching maximum power sooner which means the car will be accelerating faster.


How the Throttle Controller will affect your driving:


Daily Driving or at the Race Track

Our Camaros are equipped with a drive-by-wire system and the throttle response is affected badly by this and as most of us feel a noticeable delay when quickly changing the position of the gas pedal. ( You will understand and feel this delay after you install your new Controller ). The Throttle response delay / Lag is an intentional design on the "Drive by Wire system and the reasons are:
  • Decreasing emissions
  • Not allowing the engine components to do anything harsh
  • Safety and drivability
  • Comfort
  • Fuel economy
Driving Pleasure:

Throttle response plays a major role in driving pleasure, as this gives the driver more control over the vehicle's acceleration or deceleration. If you have a very precise throttle response, it will not only make your driving maneuvers a lot more predictable but makes you feel more comfortable pushing the car's limits on corners.


On a race track, while entering a corner, the requested power output is reduced since the vehicle is coasting or braking. After passing the corner, the driver will suddenly request more power to accelerate back to normal speeds. Fast throttle response allows a vehicle to regain its speed quickly after cornering. Drifting requires very precise and instant throttle response on a rear-wheel drive car, one wants to increase torque on the rear wheels at a precise moment in a corner to make it turn the car more in the direction of the road ahead past the corner, and make it stop at a precise moment or the car will spin out of control. No matter what the maximum engine power is, if the throttle response is slow, you will not be able to have control or do this maneuver.

I ordered mine from Vitesse directly on the 11th and found out today that the cable they need is currently out of stock (probably will be in stock in a few days). I called up Victoria @ Apex and verified they do have them in stock. Put in an order with her and cancelled the original order with Vitesse.

It will not impact your tune and you will still benefit from it.

So what exactly is it? Unless i missed something. What exactly are we purchasing and where does it go? Is it a voltage boost? Is it some kind of ecu programming? All that being said I am interested.

Here is the unit itself. It plugs into your drive-by-wire system and eliminates the lag that the factory set up allows.

So I am in the 2013 LFX 3.6L V6.
What kind of performance increase am I going to see in the butt dyno from this?
Would greatly appreciate a review from someone that's done this to their v6!
I have already done a VMAX spiral ported throttle body, and a CAI cold air intake, which I am very happy with. Can I expect to see an increase in felt performance like I did with those two additions?

Question : I have a ATM "range" devise, will I have to remove and keep it out if I hook up the throttle controller?

What wires are being cut or bridged? I guessing blue is ACC power and yellow is 12v?

The wires I didn't use, are for launch control. I'm very happy with it. I'm using ec1 to drive around, but I like playing with the sp side. I made a video of the install. I didn't see any on you-tube, so I decided to make one. I have a little to edit, soon I'll post it, and I'll put a link up.

Cool! Thanks for the quick reply.

I just picked up my 14 SS two days ago and was amazed at how slow the throttle response is. As I was lurking through this forum waiting for my car to arrive I was real skeptical about this product but after some seat time in this car I can certainly understand why this is needed. Will this product reduce the slow rev time as well? For example I'm sitting at the light and rev my engine with the clutch in and the RPM's raise and lower extremely slow, will this change that?

Yes it will. I noticed it after I installed mine that it revved much faster.

Just ordered mine on-line from Apex. Any delays in shipping? How long can I expect before delivery. Very excited about getting this installed. Heard only good things about it. CAI intake is next. Thank You!

I was told they are not in stock and are looking at a week delay currently. I ordered mine Saturday and just heard this afternoon they are expecting another week. Vitesse site shows they are out of stock confirming...
