Delicious word salad. Did you read that off the back of the pamphlet they included "free" with your $2 worth of injection molded plastic and Chinese transistors?

Please, do explain how it "eliminates throttle lag"...."that has been programmed in". Specifically, in electronics terminology. I've explained how it actually works, by a simple ratio based voltage amplification. But how do you propose that your little gimmick is bypassing this "programmed in throttle lag"? Skip the marketing word salad this time please, you made me hungry enough the first time.



Yup, there it is again.



Word salad makes you hungry too, eh? Did you buy that hexagonal water creator off Amazon yet? I just know you'll love it after you spend $399 on it!

Choice-supportive bias is real, folks.
Huh....Motorhead garage also did a test with a Tacoma and achieved similar results. I guess those results were fake as well. I guess the countless reviews from satisfied customers must be fake too. I use a sprint booster and I'm not able to mimic the instant throttle response and improved drivability simply by "pushing the pedal further."

I guess it doesn't work. You must be right.

You must be a hoot at parties. It's tough always being the smartest guy in the room. Maybe you could write a review of the yet to be released 6th gen. You haven't seen or driven one, but that shouldn't stop you.

Your entire maniacal rant is meritless as you've never tested the product.

Oooh is this a party?! Shit, and I forgot my kazoo. You'd love it, my Lil' Lupe Fiasco cover's always a hit. His song her negligee....don't ask.

But I missed what part of that was the explanation of the circuitry required to bypass your "programmed in throttle lag". You know, about how it's so much different than flooring the pedal?

It's actually pretty nice being the most knowledgeable guy in the room. Case in point - I'd much rather be on the giving end than the receiving end of this reaming. Doesn't always happen, and in fact it doesn't even usually come up, but see - thing is, when someone else knows more about a topic than I do, I acknowledge it -and avoid the reaming.

But anyway, enjoy that Sprint Booster, you've earned it. And the tranny replacements...and tire replacements...and stifled smiles at meets from guys who actually know engines and circuitry. Now where did I put that kazoo...

I have what I thought was an original stock theft prevention feature. Before starting the car one must turn the lights on - or at least flash the brights. I purchased the car used. Is this an OEM feature or something that was added after?

Came hear for some answers regarding a fuel kill switch and ended up with two teenagers arguing. Does anyone know the color of the fuel pump wire on a 5th gen 4runner? The past colors have been blue with an orange stripe. Is the 5th gen 4Runner the same color? Thank you...

Looking at the wiring diagram there are three wires you could possibly interrupt with a switch. The trick is to find a convenient location to access them.

You can not duplicate what the sprint booster or pedal commander does by simply flooring the vehicle. It does not just increase throttle input but also increases throttle response, thereby eliminating the lag that has been programmed in. It creates a much more drivable and responsive driving experience. Try one first before you give a review.

I mean heís not wrongÖ your throttle output will always be 0-100%, all youíre doing is changing the curve of the output based on position. Their marketing is misleading but thatís not to say they donít have any benefits. The stock curve is optimized for fuel economy.
On my motorcycle the throttle required 3/4 turn to full throttle, I replaced the throttle tube with a 1/2turn to full throttle. Works soo much better but all I did was change the throttle curve to a steeper curve.

Anyways, back to the original question. Just pull the starter relay and hide it somewhere in the truck. Just as effective as a switch and itís free lol.
