Sprint Booster REVIEW AMAZING!! U.S. spec

So im sure you guys have long been waiting for my review. i had a few obstacles to go through but fortunately for you guys, you wont have to go through them!!! lol...

Ok so the Sprint Booster is amazing in every aspect. Right from start up, i blip the throttle and its wayyyyyy more responsive... it feels as if the car is just lighter... then as i start to drive and punch it, its WAYYY more of a kick than before... after all the trouble i went through, let me just say it was all worth it... i absolutely love it.... through every gear i feel more of a pull.. I DEFINITELY recommend this to every one....

NOW heres the fukin trouble i went through that you all can avoid... from everywhere i read to the installation, it said that YOU NEED to get a special security screw to unscrew the peddle BLAH BLAH BLAHHH... well guess what its all bullSh!t!! you dont need to touch the peddle screws.. underneath the peddle is a little clip and you just hold it down with a flat head screw driver and it just slides off!!! thats it! i had to wait 2 weeks for a special tool kit to come, and realize that none of the bits fit.. so i got pissed and decided to take a better look at my peddle.

Now if you wanna get this product you dont have to pay $315+ on Ebay... i talked to the seller i bought the SB from and he said we can do a group buy... $250 SHIPPED for all us American members... IF your down, start making a list

heres wat it looks like... its just a cable that plugs in between your pedal and the connector... i have nothing to gain from this.. i just think this is a really cool gadget that only the people in Europe seem to have... it makes your pedal response feel lighter and more alive... also when you floor it, you just feel pushed back more.. kinda hard to explain sorry ...

I believe all it does is open the butterfly on your throttle body more at a given throttle position. What it essentially does is trick the computer into thinking you're smashing the peddle down further than you really are.

Curious though jetskier, do you feel a difference in manual mode?

my cars a stick, do you mean manual mode in steptronic?? but regardless it makes a difference in both transmissions. I say this because my friend also bought it for his AUTO audi A4, and he absolutely loves.. i drove it and it feels way better than it did b4..

Did your friend with the Audi have a steptronic-like transmission? Because if I'm not mistaken, I believe on the steps, if you put it into "manual" mode, it essentially does something similar.

yea its very similar to steptronic... you click it to the right and you can shift the gears by pushing the lever up and down...

reading 13 pages of a one sided perspective doesnt explain the fact that i feel a complete difference with the use of this product.. besides this was comparing the pedal of a mercedes benz
