Banks throttle control

Anybody use one of these? Corrects the poor throttle response. Our GX and my Nieces Runner are horrible. So they put a pedal comander on thiers. It's much better, but occasionally throws a code and thus a check engine light for no reason. So is the Banks better? I really believe the poor throttle response contributed to my wife dinging the front of our GX. Besides that, the poor throttle response is really a PIA.

I use the Pedal Commander, but I do like that the Banks unit deactivates in reverse.

These issues could be due to compatibility issues, installation errors, or software glitches.
Banks Throttle Controller: The Banks Throttle Controller is another option designed to enhance throttle response and reduce lag. It offers different modes for various driving conditions and claims to provide smoother acceleration. However, like any aftermarket modification, results may vary depending on the vehicle and driving habits.
When considering either of these products, it's essential to research thoroughly, read reviews from other users, and ensure compatibility with your specific vehicle model. Additionally, proper installation by a qualified technician is crucial to minimize the risk of error codes or check engine lights. super mario bros
Ultimately, while throttle response controllers can improve driving experience, they may not completely eliminate poor throttle response caused by underlying issues in the vehicle's engine or electronic systems. If throttle response continues to be a problem despite using a controller, it may be worth having the vehicle inspected by a mechanic to identify and address any underlying issues.

AI response. I should have expected that. Driving both my old truck ('99 GMC 2500) and our 98 Grand Cherokee. Both have excellent throttle response. The Cherokee being spot on. The GX460 is absolutely terrible! So should I pull the trigger on the banks unit. I think so.
