Sprint Booster - New version V3!!!

(enlarge)

2003 - 2019, Toyota 4Runner

The Sprint Booster is a Plug-n-Play Performance Upgrade for your 4Runner. This is V3 latest model. We've had many complaints about the 4Runner's lack of power, and feel of hesitation when getting on the gas.
Jason Burtman, of Burtman Industries just doesn't let any product get in the door. When he heard about this product, he shook his head and said, "Prove it!"
So, we sent some test units to some of our customers and asked them to report back to us. Immediately, we started getting calls asking if they could keep it. Only then, did we start offering this product. This is an upgrade that you can feel with normal everyday driving, not just on the track at redline like most other performance upgrades!

What is the Sprint Booster? Most cars in the 21st century have replaced the more conventional metal throttle cable for an ECM (Electronic Control Module) that translates how hard the pedal is pushed into an electronic signal in order to provide power to the wheels. This is also known as "Drive-By-Wire", and can have the unfortunate downside of delayed response and subdued acceleration. This of course can create problems in certain situations such as up-hill starts, quick gear changes, and passing.

The Sprint Booster FIXES this delayed throttle response on your 4Runner by providing increased acceleration time (eliminating delay) on the drive-by- wire unit by continuously measuring and converting the digital signal and providing the ECM (Electronic Control Module) with a new and altered signal for much quicker response. This improves response, increases pedal input sensitivity and delivers more impressive off the line performance you can really feel. It's a simple plug-n-play installation which takes a few minutes and delivers instant response throughout the power band.

If you are still confused, simply put, this device amplifies the signal from your gas pedal to the throttle body. It eliminates the delay that is inherent on the Drive by Wire technology on certain vehicles. The 4Runner, being one of them.

Burtman Industries works directly with the factory and can even have these custom made for other makes makes and models, be sure to ask.

  • At low revs, the engine responds at approximately half the time in comparison to before, see chart above
  • The delay time accelerating in 3rd and 4th gear and the engine in the mid-range, is almost zero.
  • Big gains in high rev range
  • Improved response for downshifts and quicker passing.
  • Overall safety and more fun on the road!
  • Does not affect the warranty
  • Installs in seconds!
  • Does not make the noise of an aftermarket exhaust or intake
  • NEW - VALET MODE: Valet mode lets you set an rpm point that the truck can't go over. Good for when you don't want someone joyriding at the dealer or when you don't want one of your kids beating your vehicle around
  • NEW - LOCK OUT MODE: Lock out mode let's you set a pin and if someone breaks in and tries to steal you truck, the gas pedal is locked out and they are going nowhere! Ex, say your park at an airport or a place your aren't comfortable with. Many say it gives them more peace of mind. Yes, if someone really wants to steal your car, they will find a way, but this is just another layer of protection may make them take someone else's car.
  • WILL NOT VOID YOUR WARRANTY: As far as dealership concerns there is a law called the Magnuson Moss Act. Sprint Booster works manufacturers OWN safety protocols so it's a no worry option.

    How do you install it? This is the best part. No cutting, no soldering, nothing but a few seconds. It plugs INLINE with your current wiring. You unplug the cable coming off the ECM, which is behind the gas pedal, and easy to get to. You unplug it, plug this in the middle, and the other end connects back up to the factory wiring. Totally plug & play.

    This is a T4R MEMBERS SPECIAL!!!

    Just wanted to drop a quick note and say "thank you" for the booster. It arrived on Friday and I installed it right away. Took it out for a test drive and couldn't really tell that big of a difference at first so I was on the fence about whether or not it really worked. When my wife took it out for a whirl however, we bumped it up to RED 9 and wow, what a difference!! The 4Runner feels so much more alive and responsive. As others have said, this is how the car should have came from the factory. So yes, add me to your list of clients who are completely satisfied with the booster. Thanks again for all your help! Really appreciate it.

    So I ordered a sprint booster from Jason B at Burtman Industries, and I have to say.... I was pretty skeptical, thinking its snake oil, hogwash, etc....but I have to admit I love this F@#$@# thing. Basically, the one thing I hated about the 4runner was the artificial throttle lag, and the sprint booster got rid of it, and on top of that, lets you set the sensitivity of the throttle response to your own liking. This is probably my favorite mod as of now because it got rid of something i HATED and then IMPROVED it.

    Pros:
    1. no more throttle lag.
    2. no more trying to time your passing in bumper to bumper traffic
    3. allows you to dial in your throttle sensitivity to match your stump leg
    4. easy to install, and stupidly easy to adjust.
    5. puts the smile back in my commute.
    6. pedal lockout which acts like a immobilizer when you need to park your car for extended periods of time.
    7. set it and forget it once you figure out what works for you.

    Cons:
    1. not sure if its worth that kind of coin if the current throttle response doesn't bother you.
    2. 18 settings mean you kinda have to figure out what works for you.
    3. you are basically paying somebody to fix a problem that toyota knowingly created.
    4. maybe worse gas mileage, I don't know about that..I think it helps my gas mileage because I'm not mashing the gas pedal anymore to pass (now I try n feather the throttle like a normal human).

    Lastly, Jason was a pleasure to deal with, even going as far to actually calling me to tell me my order was going to be slightly delayed. Yup, dood actually called me before a problem can arise, and yeah. he actually calls (not email, not text, and most importantly not disappearing with your money for weeks on end).

    Also, Jason was the cheapest after tax and shipping (even beating amazon).

    This is my second Sprint Booster (Thanks Jason!) My first was a V2 SB that had 3 settings, off, street and race. Like another post here, I had mine on a tuned Mini Cooper with a 6 speed manual. The stock throttle response was crazy slow on the Mini especially when comparing it to the last "wired" throttle control car I had. It seriously transformed the feel and response in that vehicle making shifting much smoother and making quick acceleration feel as it should. The V3 SB on my 19 takes a major chunk out of the lethargic throttle response and the ability to have more adjustability on the newer version is really nice. I've been tweaking it here and there but for now I've kept it on the green 7 setting. I agree it's pricey, but since this is my daily driver, the SB is going to be the only modification I do to the engine since it really helps the driveability.

    "Holy S#!T!", is what I said when I hit the throttle for the first time after installing this beauty in my 4runner yesterday. Even after driving this for a few hours yesterday, I still said "WoW" when I hit the throttle the first time today. Worth every penny!

    Ordered mine on Monday, it arrived on Wednesday...great shipping! I installed it this evening, set to Green 9 and took a spin. WOW!! It really shines during part-throttle acceleration from cruising speed, e.g. passing, accelerating uphill. Also wakes things up during acceleration from dead stop, more of a positive launch when you put the pedal down than the factory buffered gradual throttle opening. I dialed it back to Green 5 for errand-running just to get a feel for it, might try the Red settings after I get a good baseline. Thanks for the great price, it was enough to pull me off the fence.
