Description
 

Sprint Booster's Throttle Enhancer overcomes the delay in throttle response by providing crisp, on-tap acceleration whenever the driver demands it.

In 2001, BMW replaced the more conventional throttle cable for an ECM (Electronic Control Module) that translates how hard the pedal is pushed into electronic signals in order to provide power to the wheels. The ETC (Electronic Throttle Control), which is also known as Drive-By-Wire, has the unfortunate downside of delayed response and subdued acceleration, which can create problems in certain situations such as up-hill starts, quick gear changes and overtaking. Sprint Booster'sThrottle Enhancer cures this issue by providing a livelier throttle pedal and snappy response of a proper cable-driven throttle. It sends an improved signal to the ETC (Electronic Throttle Control) which is amplified or "boosted" so that throttle is noticeably more responsive throughout the entire rpm range.

How Sprint Booster's Throttle Enhancer Works

Sprint Booster makes your car's throttle respond faster to your foot. As a result, your gas pedal actually achieves a full throttle response 25% sooner than the stock configuration. Even if you have a 'sport' button, the Throttle Enhancer will quicken the throttle response time. By making the throttle respond faster to your input, you will feel as though your car has spent some time at the gym! Sprint Booster simply modifies the throttle signal between the accelerator pedal and the throttle body. It doesn't add horsepower, but makes the throttle more sensitive and makes the car 'feel' faster. Enlarge image at right for graph showing the increased throttle response. It doesn't matter if you have a Sport Mode or aftermarket performance software, Sprint Booster's Throttle Enhancer works independently of other modifications.

Benefits of the new 2.0 version Throttle Enhancer

The Throttle Enhancer 2.0 now has a switch that mounts in a convenient location that allows the adjustment of the throttle response between 3 settings: Stock, Stage1, and Stage 2. Stock is just as the throttle response feels without the Throttle Enhancer installed. Stage 1 is a small increase in throttle response. Stage 2 is a more aggressive throttle response. This will allow the driver to fine tune the throttle response to his or her personal taste. The switch comes with the Throttle Enhancer as a complete kit.

Are you a Sprint Booster kind of guy?

Let's face it, on the street we're hardly ever at 100% throttle. With today's congested roads and increased law enforcement, running a modern car through it's gears at full throttle will leave you without a driver's license in no time. Auto enthusiasts in today's market are looking for products they can enjoy in everyday driving, not only at the track or spirited country roads. The Throttle Enhancers benefits are felt in the low to mid pedal travel so you can enjoy the feeling of quick throttle response and better acceleration even in normal driving conditions.

Easy Installation

The installation procedure is simple and easy. The procedure requires removing the throttle pedal assembly (1 minute job with a standard screwdriver) and unclipping the wire harness from the pedal. Installing the Sprint Booster Throttle Enhancer between the harness and the pedal assembly and reinstall. Simple as that! There is no programming or setup period- just install and go! The car can be set back to factory setting just as easy.
