    Default Sprint booster impressions...

    I finally decided to head out and try the sprint booster. After the tech installed the sprint booster under the pedal, I decided it was judgment time, was it all it was cracked up to be? Just one word describes it, AWESOME!!
    I no longer have the lag on hills, nor between gear changes. The cars revs climb like you cant believe (that is offcourse if your right foor is planted on the gas pedal) The response from the pedal, to the engine is instantaneous!!
    It feels like im driving a different car. I guess this little mod really complements the fga box, and unlocks its potential. So if anyone is wondering what to do with that slugish, or should i say "snail-ish" 1.8l this is it!! I can honestly say that I'm very, very, very! happy with my veccy!!
    That is until i get my hands on a 2.0 insignia hehe......

    Its a small plastic piece, that fits in the footwell, behind the gas pedal, it mounts in less than a minute. What it does is eliminate the lag from the drive by wire, makes acceleration more crisp. I'll try to post a link with the descripition.

    • Sprint Booster does not increase Horsepower.

    • Sprint Booster does not reduce your 0-60mph times.

    • Sprint Booster DOES make your car 'FEEL' faster

    So basically all it does is make the pedal reach full throttle (100%) with less pedal movement than standard. Can't see how it can reduce any lag on hills or make the revs climb any faster than just putting your foot to the floor without the device.

    Was curious how much they wanted for this dubious device.......

    $329!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've got myself a sprintbooster alternative fitted to my car, It makes hill starts an easy brease!
    Acelleration is up maximum before wheel spins would occur and driving is definitely much more fun!

    ... It's called more pressure on the gas pedal and matching clutch control!
