Adjustable throttle control

Somewhere, I read of a company that makes an adjustable "plug-in" controller for the throttle, to give "Solid linkage type performance".Any one else seen that. I love my Cam, But, throttle response isn't exactly snappy !. Thanks, USMC52.

It's just a prescaler that plugs inline with your throttle harness and fools the computer into thinking you gave it more pedal.

Save your money.

Well that settles that.Thanks patriotpa.I really miss the direct feel of solid linkage.Like on my 68 way back,when in 1st, you could smash the throttle & release to get that double-chirp ! USMC52 [ now 55 ]

I installed a "Sprint Booster" shortly after I got mine. My dealer's used car manager recommended it. It plugs into the top of the accelerator pedal and makes the throttle much more responsive with 3 settings - stock, stage 1 and stage 2. No effect on HP but makes the car quicker as it now takes less time to reach full throttle.


I haven't tried adding a link on this forum so don't know if this will work:

Sprint Booster USA Official North American Distributor

Here is a link to some pictures I took when I installed it:

Sprint Booster 100904

And while I am at it here is a link to my skip shift installation:

Skip Shift

I have pictures of my CAI and axle back (muffler delete) exhaust I installed and short movies of my Camaro at the TMP Road Course and Drag Strip that I will post after I add them to my web site.

Another way to improve your throttle response and gain a few horses is with a VMAX CNC ported throttle body.
With the bigger and slicker flow of air, it noticeably improves throttle response for most people (me included).
It still won't feel like the good old throttle cables, but it gets you closer to that feeling!
Unfortunately, the throttle cable is pretty much a thing of the past now.

I had a Sprint Booster on my C6 Corvette. It works as advertised.

When I installed mine I described it as taking the available power and bringing it on quicker down low therefore getting you out the hole quicker. I would imagine a dyno reading would show the same available hp or torque turning on quicker in the rpm range than without it installed.
