Since the inception of drive-by-wire technology, drivers have been disappointed with the inherent throttle delay associated with the system.
This is why Boulekos Dynamic developed Sprint Booster and proudly brought the product to the market in 2005.
Sprint Booster is the first and leading product in the industry to improve throttle response by reprogramming the acceleration signals and has managed to gain hundreds of thousands of happy customers throughout all those years.
It has been honored with one of the most important awards in aftermarket industry , the ‘SEMA BEST NEW PERFORMANCE-STREET PRODUCT 2010’ award among 1400 new products that year, as well as with three ‘SEMA GLOBAL MEDIA AWARDS’ as voted by a group of international Journalists from automotive media around the world (28 judges from16 key automotive markets)
Automobiles in the 21st century have replaced the more conventional throttle cable technology for an ECM (Electronic Control Module) that translates pedal travel into electronic signals in order to provide power to the wheels.
The ETC system (Electronic Throttle Control) – also known as drive-by-wire – has the unfortunate downside of delayed throttle response and subdued acceleration, creating problems in certain circumstances such as up-hill starts, quick gearchanges, overtaking, etc.The Sprint Booster aims to overcome this throttle response delay for ETC-equipped vehicles, providing crisp on-tap acceleration at the driver’s disposal.
It is a device that improves acceleration by continuously measuring and converting the digital signal provided by the ETC’s potentiometer, and providing the ECM with a new and altered signal.
The design of the Sprint Booster allows for its easy installation in all models, without the need to cut any wires (plug n’ play) or intervene in the automobile’s electronics (it does not affect other systems such as electronic injection, ABS, etc.).
Sprint Booster connects on the accelerator pedal connector. All you need to do is disconnect the OE connector from the accelerator pedal and connect Sprint Booster in between (one side connects to the pedal and one side on the OE connector). sprint boosters
Sprint Booster comes with 3 Acceleration modes/presets ( OFF / SPORT / RACE ):
OFF mode – Sprint Booster is deactivated. The response of the car has the factory settings.The LED of the Selector switch is OFF.
SPORT mode- Sprint Booster provides improved response up to 30%. The LED of the selector switch in Sport mode is Green.
RACE mode – Sprint Booster provides improved response up to 60%. The LED of the selector switch in Race mode is Red.
Each mode (SPORT – RACE) comes with 9 steps-programs so the driver can choose the one that suits his driving style (18 programs for manual transmission & 18 programs for automatic transmission in total).
This allows the driver to fine-tune each mode (SPORT – RACE) according his needs by selecting one of the nine different programs on each mode.
You can select 1-9 in SPORT mode (Green light) and 1-9 in RACE mode (Red light) with '1' being the least aggressive program and '9' the most aggressive one.
Each program adjusts the response by 3-6% so it can be fully adjustable and customized by each driver.
Sprint Booster modes and programs, are transmission type specific for better function and performance.
The driver can select the type of his vehicle transmission through a slide switch located
on the right side of the selector switch. The device will automatically adjust the programs according the type of transmission selected. There are 36 programs in total (18 for manual transmission & 18 for automatic transmission)
The Valet mode limits the acceleration of the vehicle by 55 % - 65% - 75% (comes in 3 selectable levels) .It is activated/deactivated through a 3 digit PIN. By limiting the acceleration there will be a significant reduce in vehicle's performance (Power and Torque).
The compact size allows the driver to place the selector switch anywhere on the dashboard with the use of the double sided tape.
Sprint Booster also offers the option to the driver to completely remove the switch from the device. In this case the device will work with the last settings stored in memory. For example , if the driver disconnects the selector switch while in SPORT-5 (SPORT mode- Acceleration program 5) , the device will keep as default the program SPORT-5.
The Pedal Lock mode provides extra protection against unauthorized vehicle use. The driver can deactivate the acceleration ability of the vehicle when it's stationary through a 3 digit PIN. When Pedal lock is enabled the acceleration gets disabled and the vehicle stays on idle until you enter the correct PIN.
