|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 got home and installed the SB, and all is well. I drove it around all day and no problems. It feels like a new truck. A while back when I put my lift kit on, I said it was exactly what the truck needed to create a more
aggressive apperance. The SB now allows me to back up the aggresive apperance with a more aggresive driving ability. I don't have to 'mash the pedal' in order to get the truck to drop into 4th or 3rd to accelerate. I'm very happy with my purchase!
Could I have just driven more aggresively, yes, but it would require me to keep my foot to the floor
whereas the SB makes it a lot easier to accelerate. A LOT EASIER! I have recently been beat off the line by sedans and other trucks and I hope this
will give my truck the 'kick in the ass' it needs to win. Since I don't have to push so hard to accelerate, my foot is more readily accessable to hit the
brakes. Without the SB, my foot would be pressing harder to go just as fast which would take me longer to hit the brakes. Thanks for the outstanding
service and communication!|
|This is my second Sprint Booster (Thanks Jason!) My first was a V2 SB that had 3 settings, off, street and race. Like another post here, I had mine on a tuned Mini Cooper with a 6 speed manual. The stock throttle response was crazy slow on the Mini especially when comparing it to the last "wired" throttle control car I had. It seriously transformed the feel and response in that vehicle making shifting much smoother and making quick acceleration feel as it should. The V3 SB on my 19 BE takes a major chunk out of the lethargic throttle response and the ability to have more adjustability on the newer version is really nice. I've been tweaking it here and there but for now I've kept it on the green 7 setting. I agree it's pricey, but since this is my daily driver, the SB is going to be the only modification I do to the engine since it really helps the driveability.|
|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.||
