IMO When I had it I loved it the reason why I didn't get the shark cause I don't like the idea of redlining at 7k

i bought it and i could imagine itd be nice for auto almost like a m button but on a manual be ready to burn through your clutch like no tommrow because the throttle response on "race" mode which is a joke btw is completely over done and has no way of allowing you to rev match or take off from a hill .. trust me my dad which has been driving a manual for 40 years had a issue and stalled once. the sport os decent but then it dosent really do anything and for 300 bucks lol complete pos

about 20% on the throttle is like wot on race not very much room to diddle with.. stay away!

shark isn't going to do a whole lot for my basically stock 325. That's why I want to buy a used sprint booster - (hopefully) a lot less than $300, with some kind of results.

yes it will! if you had a intake it will be even more noticablee.. sprint booster is a massive fail once you get it you will be filled with regret because you didnt go with shark.. been there done thatt. but if your really serious just grab some AA software from the group buy

Did you get the right one for your car and also did you install it the correct way. I ask because, apparently it's possible to install it the wrong way.
