Since the advent of drive-by-wire
people have been crying out
for improved throttle response. Due to the fact that many of these
modern drive by wire car have brutal driveability issues for so
many folks, the Sprint Booster product was conceived, developed,
and born as a simple solution that anyone could install.
Sprint Booster team developed and patented their product, investing
a great deal of time and resources in R&D. As more and more
people tried the product, they have reported back valuable feedback
to make the product the fully realized solution it is
A lot of people have
misconceptions on how Sprint Booster modules operate. Like many owners who modify their car, you
are probably sceptical when it comes to a product that makes the
claim "to fix or improve" throttle response on a car like your
BMW. In fact, Sprint Boosters have been more popular in the
Euro car market than any other (BMW, Porsche, Audi and Mercedes
Sprint booster is a simple plug and play unit
that allows the end user to adjust the throttle pedals response and
curve, to better match how the driver feels the engine should
Before the advent of Drive-by-wire, a metal cable offered a direct
connection to the engines throttle-butterfly ( a valve that adjusts
how much air is ingested). As modern technology has demanded a more
flexible electrical system, and more compact engine bay drive by
wire and its non-linear behaviour was implemented. Believe it or
not, many manufactures believe that the delay and behaviour of
there Drive by wire systems offer an "easier to drive" experience.
However- if you own one of these, you know that these delays are
very bothersome. Sprint booster is the quick and easy fix!

Here is the quick FAQ with
excellent info and facts to dispel myths or misconceptions you may
have about the product.
1. I have seen this sort of thing before, isn’t this just like
xyz throttle controller product from xyz
country?Sprint Booster is a patented product. No one has invested the
amount of time and resources they have to enhance the electronic
“DRIVE BY WIRE” system. It is protected by a patent (GR1005429) in
front of OBI (patent office in Greece) as well as internationally
by patent application in front of PCT (WO2007066155).
Second, Sprint Booster is far more advanced than people think. The
circuitry inside Sprint Booster is monitoring pedal travel on the fly, or in other
words, basing its output on what the driver is doing with his foot
analysing angular change, rate of change, and more. Using that
information, Sprint Booster is far more effective at providing the right amount
of throttle inputs to the ECU that are in line with what you (the
driver) are demanding. This is regardless of WOT or partial
throttle situations (the inputs are not simply translated linearly,
therefore the theory that the Sprint Booster makes 80% throttle
behave like 100% throttle are not true). Try one, you will see!
2. I can get a tune. Why would I waste time and money
The best way to answer this question goes back to how our product
works. If you step on the pedal, the Sprint Booster is providing your ECU with a very accurate
interpretation of what you want in regards to throttle.
While Tuning system can modify your throttle MAPS to change
thresholds, it’s very hard to get just the right amount of throttle
response in certain situations, which ultimately means the map that
is included on your tune may still not be the ideal match for
your needs or tastes.
With a Sprint Booster at your disposal, there are 2 levels
of throttle response that the developers have created from many
years of experience and testing. You can enjoy a very fluid
response, or a even snappier one. You could also turn the Sprint
booster off for another driver if you wish.
Low gear hesitation, or strange shifting when going on and off of
the throttle are typical complaints that the Sprint Booster can
solve. Sprint Booster is not a tuner. It’s simply a plug and play
modification that takes 5 minutes to install that connects to your
pedal connector. It measures your inputs and translates a modified
signal more in line with your expectations. This product works well
with Tuning software maps that do not aggressively change the stock
throttle maps (most BMW tunes)
3. Is Sprint Booster Safe... will this hurt my car?
If properly installed, yes Sprint Booster is very safe. Safety is something they take very
seriously. This is why Sprint Boosters are subjected to testing to
meet ultra high TUV SUD tests which some would argue are the
highest technical testing standard in the world. The Sprint Booster has passed successfully each TUV test (TUV SUD
Automotive) and it is certified with European Conformity type
approval ( E.C. type approval mark No e24031712) with regard to
Directive 72/245/EEC as last amended by Directive 2006/28/EC.
The e – mark is printed on each device. For more information about
TUV can be found on the USA TUV website http://tuvamerica.com/industry/automotive.cfm
4. Where is Sprint Booster manufactured?Sprint Booster is 100% made in Europe
5. 30 day money back guarantee? But what’s the catch?
No catch. With the Sprint Booster product line the entire dealer network, including
VAC, offer a 30 day trial. As long as your purchasing it at direct
Sprint Booster dealer, it doesn’t matter.
If you don’t like the product for whatever reason. RETURN IT and

They are very serious about their brand and customer service!
6. Will my dealership void my warranty or know I did something
to my throttle response?
No, Sprint Booster is not reflashing or modifying your cars ECU or
subsystems. It simply translates your throttle pedal inputs. In a
sense restoring the "traditional cable system" feel to your modern
BMWs throttle, that older BMWs enjoyed for so many
years. Sprint Booster can be uninstalled at any time should you
feel uncomfortable bringing your car into the dealership.
Furthermore, with sprint booster installed, it cannot be detected by any diagnostic
In fact, these product works so well, that a few dealerships
currently sell Sprint Boosters as a safe and effective way of
improving how a model drives.
