Throttle Enhancer overcomes the delay in throttle response by
providing crisp, on-tap acceleration whenever the driver demands
AND A 30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!***
In 2001, BMW replaced
the more conventional throttle cable for an ECM (Electronic Control
Module) that translates how hard the pedal is pushed into
electronic signals in order to provide power to the wheels. The ETC
(Electronic Throttle Control), which is also known as
Drive-By-Wire, has the unfortunate downside of delayed response and
subdued acceleration, which can create problems in certain
situations such as up-hill starts, quick gear changes and
overtaking. Sprint Booster'sThrottle Enhancer cures this
issue by providing a livelier throttle pedal and snappy response of
a proper cable-driven throttle. It sends an improved signal to the
ETC (Electronic Throttle Control) which is amplified or "boosted"
so that throttle is noticeably more responsive throughout the
entire rpm range.
How Sprint Booster's
Throttle Enhancer Works
makes your car's throttle respond faster to your foot. As a result,
your gas pedal actually achieves a full throttle response 25%
sooner than the stock configuration. Even if you have a 'sport'
button, the Throttle Enhancer will quicken the throttle
response time. By making the throttle respond faster to your input,
you will feel as though your car has spent some time at the gym!
Sprint Booster simply modifies the throttle signal between the
accelerator pedal and the throttle body. It doesn't add horsepower,
but makes the throttle more sensitive and makes the car 'feel'
faster. Enlarge image at right for graph showing the increased
throttle response. It doesn't matter if you have a Sport Mode or
aftermarket performance software, Sprint Booster's Throttle
Enhancer works independently of other
Benefits of the new
2.0 version Throttle Enhancer
Enhancer 2.0 now has a switch that mounts in a convenient
location that allows the adjustment of the throttle response
between 3 settings: Stock, Stage1, and Stage 2. Stock is just as
the throttle response feels without the Throttle Enhancer
installed. Stage 1 is a small increase in throttle response. Stage
2 is a more aggressive throttle response. This will allow the
driver to fine tune the throttle response to his or her personal
taste. The switch comes with the Throttle Enhancer as a
Are you a Sprint
Booster kind of guy?
Let's face it, on the
street we're hardly ever at 100% throttle. With today's congested
roads and increased law enforcement, running a modern car through
it's gears at full throttle will leave you without a driver's
license in no time. Auto enthusiasts in today's market are looking
for products they can enjoy in everyday driving, not only at the
track or spirited country roads. The Throttle Enhancers
benefits are felt in the low to mid pedal travel so you can enjoy
the feeling of quick throttle response and better acceleration even
in normal driving conditions.
procedure is simple and easy. The procedure requires removing the
throttle pedal assembly (1 minute job with a standard screwdriver)
and unclipping the wire harness from the pedal. Installing the
Sprint Booster Throttle Enhancer between the harness and the
pedal assembly and reinstall. Simple as that! There is no
programming or setup period- just install and go! The car can be
set back to factory setting just as easy.

Great driving enhancement
From Edwin of Danville, Virginia on 4/25/2013.
Drive-by-wire should all feel this way. I am a pretty difficult person to please in terms of actual seat-of-the=pant enhancement. This gadget really works. Period.
From Mark M of ATL, Georgia on 2/28/2011.
The stock throttle pedal definitely requires too much travel vs. response, so I like what the Sprint Booster does. My impressions are that the Sprint Booster’s maximum setting is way too much gain, and the medium setting is still pretty strong, but that’s what I’ve settled on, and I’m getting used to it. One more increment or an infinitely variable control would be a really nice thing to have. I’m pleased.
High Fun Quotient
From ChadB of Minneapolis, Minnesota on 12/21/2009.
Definitely makes my e46 more fun to drive!I always thought the lethargic launch and generally anemic accelerator-feeling was the SAC (Such A Piece of Crap) clutch, turns out 70% of the issue was the fly-by-wire accelerator; though the clutch is still crap :)A little closer to my e36 M3.Highly recommended!
