sprint booster

hi everyone

I have just ordere a sprint booster for my gta and was woundering if anyone has fitted one to thier car and does it really make a difference?

is the bluefin by superchip any good or is it better to go get a remap on a rolling road?

sprint booster is different to a remap, or a chip for your ecu.

all the sprint booster is supposed to do is sharpen up the response of the signal between your pedal and your throttle, so that the throttle is more responsive.

i bought one for my 156, but couldnt fit it, and the sprint booster is designed to go between plug and connector on the top of the accelerator pedal, but i phsyically could not remove the plug, due to the lack of space, and i have small hands.
