    Done a quick bit of research on this gizmo, and all it does is open the throttle disproportionately to pedal movement ie...

Exactly like you explain it is giving you the 80% throttle for the first 10% of pedal movement, it can never give better response over the whole pedal travel.
    Going by this thread (which is over 50 pages)- http://www.crossfireforum.org/forum/...ad.php?t=11277. plenty people bought on and were pleased with it, but found it difficult to drive in traffic as the throttle is too aggressive. Quite a few are taking them off and selling them, whereas a few love them
