They're just a throttle prescaler. Waste of money.
If you want better throttle response, get a tune.

all this throttle response talk is nonsense, we're talking about a small fraction of a second here, nothing that anyone is going to notice on a street car. it's just people trying to make money off of you.

2012 1LS Silver Ice - Mods - SS Strut Brace, RX Catch Can, BBK CAI, TRS Bi-Xenon HID's, Blackout Grill, RX65 Radar Detector, 700watt 4 Channel Amp with Kicker Speakers, 4Pack Gauges Added, 30% tint. Baer Drilled Rotors & pads, 20" American Racing. Awesome car.

On c-5 there is a whole douchebaggery of guys falling all over themselves to push the "vitesse" throttle controller which is simply a Chinese import that you can see in many flavors on ebay/ the Net...

This is a product that is not so needed unless you plan on never voiding your warranty and getting a tune with performance altering products. Stock the potentiometer delays the throttle response to not only save gas but to keep idiots form stomping the pedal breaking traction and wrecking their cars or hurting the rear end parts.

Sure their is on like every new car this built in delay to improve the mileage and make the cars somewhat safer. This has been going on for a long time since like the late 80's when they invented drive by wire, and the products like sprint booster, etc have been being made ever since. And yes it feels like your getting it more when actually its just as if your foot traveled more on the pedal ...... SO its opening the throttle body faster to a more wide open and therefore making it easier to do little burnouts or feel more impressed with the stock cars performance.

Sure its nice for that, yet I am in the boat where I can at anytime burn rubber
even going from gear to gear as I have a built engine and a good tune and try to not chirp the tires just taking off. Also having the pedal so sensitive could make people get real stupid in bad weather...... oh you can adjust it yes..... but it has to be set to the right setting for the right situation.....
