|I purchased this product from Jason and I even had a chance to test it for a month. I was very very sceptical at first until I installed this product. It's a plug and play device that connects under the hood. near the upper passengers side. Just like a lego. I did not feel like going for a cold air intake and or the exhaust mods just yet. The Sprint Booster does WORK! Fellow Ridgeliners need to give it a try. Plug it in one week, unplug it the next, then plug it in again. You will find a difference in TBR (throttle body response). I am a very happy customer. Give jason a Call. Thanks again Jason,
|So, I took a sip of the Kool-Aid. Then after installing I drank the whole pitcher. Like others have said the install takes all of about 15 minutes. The first ten of which are spent with the door open waiting for the CANBUS system to work itself out. I took this opportunity to find a spot for the controller. Once the truck sat for 10 minutes I used the Squeeze-Push-Pull method and the accelerator pedal connector popped right off. I have only driven for about and hour so far but I like what I am experiencing.
Before I would tell the truck "Go!" and it would respond "Okay. I hear what you are saying but let's put a pin in that thought and discuss other ideas we can try together". Now I tell the truck "Go!" and it responds "OK!". I started at Green 9 and for now have settled on Red 5. I jumped around a little between Red 5 and Red 9 but for now I will keep it on Red 5 and see how I feel after some more seat time.
The real test was letting the wife drive it and see her reaction and it passed the wife test with flying colors. I asked her to drive my truck to dinner tonight. After pulling out of the driveway and then taking off from the stop sign at the end of our street she says "What's wrong with your truck?" I responded "What do you mean 'what's wrong with it?" To which she said "It doesn't suck to drive anymore" Did Sprint Booster give me more horsepower? No, and I didn't expect it to. Did it dramatically change the driving experience? Absolutely.
|I was on the fence for months reading threads and researching as much as I could about this mod before I got off the fence. This was mainly because I never owned a drive by wire vehicle before personally. I was also afraid this was just another one of those performance chips that all over eBay that are nothing more than a resistor or something that does very little in the way of performance other than some that just advance timing a bit. This device completely changed the feel of my driving experience in my runner, which had plenty of torque, but just didn't feel as fast as it should. Now, every time I get in it, I'm happy with the performance and it now feels like it should. The cool thing is that you can tailor the throttle response to suit your driving style. I tried several settings, one at a time, and left them for a couple of days to evaluate before moving on until I found the sweet spot for me. If my daughter or wife were to borrow the truck though, I would likely put it to a more stock setting just because they wouldn't be used to driving with that level of responsiveness. For me personally, it was the best money I've spent on any mod so far to this truck, other than maybe the exhaust, which also added greatly to the driving experience.
This was the missing link that brought everything else together, and I'm sure most just assume (like I did initially) that it's just a snake oil product. I like it so much that if it ever broke, I'd HAVE TO replace it immediately, lol!
|Just ordered from Jason. This is my second Ridgeline and although I'm fairly satisfied with the power on and off road, there have been many times when I've either been trying to pull out into traffic, merge onto the highway or get around an 18 wheeler and the lack of throttle response has left me in some hairy situations. Looking forward to trying it out.|
|I got one of the last two you had before and am ecstatic with it. For those of you on the fence, just do it. Not only does my RL feel peppier, but so far after 3 tanks, I'm getting 25 or so more miles per tank. I might be wrong, but it could be because I don't push it to the metal that much anymore. I let a buddy drive the other day, who had previous drove my RL a half a dozen times before, and he couldn't believe how much quicker the truck felt. He thought I somehow squeezed more power out of her. Anyways, for all the Haters that have knocked it without trying it for themselves, I am glad I bought the booster and didn't listen to you guys.||
