Why? Just push the pedal down quicker. That will do the same thing that this device does.

Uhm.... I'm saying why try it? And yes, pushing the pedal down faster sure as heck does open the TB faster. That's what this device does. It "makes" it feel like you pushed the pedal down further than you did. Its a gimmick...

really running up the post count.... lol


I searched and can be pretty sure that there has been no discussion of this product on Camaro5 save your thread.

Surely that means this thing is bunk. I don't have to eat sh*t to know I don't want to.

It just remaps your throttle input to make it seem like your car has more pep. Say you give your car 10% throttle at the pedal, that little doo-dad will actually open it 15%. Your car will feel faster (and use more gas) but it won't actually be any faster.

I am really against installing any mods classified as a "doo-dad" on my car.

Am I the only 1 who thinks of the evil magician from Frosty the Snowman when they hear that phrase?

Man I really wish OP hadn't deleted all of the posts referenced in this. Too bad.

I did buy some snake oil and put it in the tank the other day though. Throttle response is out of control now. You guys don't even know.
