    How long does your car delay when you put the lead boot in??? I've never noticed mine hesitating or thought i wish its pedal response was quicker lol

    If you're racing then it might be worth a second look but otherwise I say spend the money on a good service- it'll be a better spend ;-)

    I would think an engine can only accelerate at a specified rate, caused by the design of the fuel injection, intake, exhaust etc. If you are giving it more fuel, then it could simply bog down? Bit like pulling a choke out on a hot engine, too much fuel and too little air. There is a specific fuel to air ratio that you need to get a good burn.

    I'm sure on beemers etc when you hit the sport button or whatever it changes the throttle response to make it feel more responsive in addition to stiffening the suspension etc

    I had my 'Sports button' deactivated because it was a menace.

    Its now in 'Sports mode' all the time but without the hightened throttle response, so dont need to press any buttons and its much more controllable with full power always available.

    I've also had the IDS suspension disabled, so again its always in 'Sports mode'.

    Car is a beast from the moment you turn the key

    That product doesn't change any mapping or anything like that, all it does is replicate pushing the pedal harder. It won't make the car accelerate any faster or reduce turbo lag or any other such stuff.

    Pedal input is usually damped, the higher the rate of damping the better drivability, but the slower throttle response gets.

    'Sport' just reduces this damping, so the reaction between pedal position and throttle is slightly quicker - at the expense of drivability and comfort. It doesn't change the max position, just the time to get there.
