    sprint booster any good??

    seen these for sale , sprint booster power converter
    they plug into the back of your accelerator pedal and increase accelaration

    http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...product=648988

    any one got one/ used one know about them just wondering if there worth £180 and they really work . only got exhaust and induction filter so not worth a remap wondering if these are better any insight would be great
    cheers

    £190 down the drain methinks? Better off putting a few more squid towards a decent remap. It simply alters (so it suggests) throttle response - this adds no extra power, it just makes up for drivers with a lazy right-foot.

    Load of shit.. it just makes the throttle movement disproportional to the throttle butterfly movement

    It only gives the illusion of doing something.

    Great for the vertically challenged and those with arthritic ankles
