Question type: Car Customization

Just wondering if anyone out there has experience with the Sprint Booster?  It's supposed to remove
the delay in throttle response when you press the accelerator pedal in modern drive-by-wire cars.  I
saw it mentioned on a Mitsubishi forum, but no one there seemed to have any feedback about it.  My
Outlander is a little sluggish from a dead stop, so I'm considering it IF it works and not a bunch of BS!  
(May try in on my Mazda MX-5 Miata as well...this company makes it for both vehicles).
Here's the weblink for it:  http://www.sprintboosterusa.com/

The delay in throttle response seems to be a common problem with drive- by-wire systems. I would check with other Outlander owners on a forum to see if the Sprint Booster or any other booster works. -- I do know that Audi owners are complaining and Audi is working on a software fix for their customers.

Good day, I read good reviews from other 2008+ OL owners about the (WEAPON- R I-THROTTLE CONTROLLER). The agreement that it's more or less a life saver! I'm also facing the same issue after 5 years of ownership and finally I'm clicking the buy button on ebay in a minute :) Good luck.
