TWM performance pedal box vs Sprint Booster box. Which is better?

Looking at both of these and both are the sane price ($300) I know about shark and AA tunes but am wondering which of the two power boxes is the better one? The TWMP one looks like it has more features. Also, would these fit to mount in my ashtray?

Thanks and cheers yall

People are always selling sprint boosters on here for around 200 used. I have personally not seen any pedal boxes. I have a Dinan tune and the sprint booster really added alot of joy to my car.

I just registered on here and picked up a PedalBox not long ago. Since TWM Performance is local to me, I went to test one out. I used to have a SprintBooster in my ride before hand and the difference is significant. The programming in the PedalBox is better and more dynamic, as they say. It's worth a shot and the unit is priced rather competitively

I plugged it into the throttle connector and tucked the wire into the side of the center console. They supply velcro to stick behind the little controller so you can basically place it wherever you want. The controller looks sharp too!

Re: TWM performance pedal box vs Sprint Booster box. Which is better?

Are these worth getting. I just purchased a 2004 330i and can't stand the throttle lag.

I couldn't agree more and would also love some opinions. Its amazing how the throttle response is after you reset your throttle adaptation but then it progressively becomes less responsive...unless you drive around WOT 24/7 haha then it might remain responsive...

haha just saw an add for this on Facebook.

Modifying your pedal will not cure lag. The same affect can be had by slamming your foot on the pedal.

Fix your vacuum leaks, fix your vanos, make sure everything is right then teach your foot not to be a p****

Can you elaborate on the difference between the two?

100% Not true. These make a huge difference. Both are great. I don't own them but know people that do. The SB to me is the better deal. My friend with the PB says he's been playing with it for months and can't decide where to set it due to it's having 18 different setting variations. I'm buying the SB soon.
