Hey guys
I went to an Automobile tuning shop today, he showed me something called a "sprint booster". It just reprograms the throttle response and makes the car 30-100% faster (electric response pedal).
I want to know what you guys think about this? and how does it work with the CVT transmission?

I also saw an ITG air filter, did any try it before?

CVT was made to increase fuel efficiency at the expense of performance. Besides, the sprint booster looks fancy on paper with all those theoretical figures, but what it's actually doing is giving you the feeling of a quicker response, but your overall output/performance remains intact. In other words, useless.

Sprint boosters do nothing to the car except increase throttle response making it feel faster. It is a waste of money IMHO!

Rogue bud, if you drove your ex-G35 like that, what sort of fuel economy figures did you get? 5 MPG? The VQ35 is thirsty when pushed!

Who is selling these Sprint Boosters and ITGs, YellowHat? There was another member with an Accord with the same kit.
