|I was on the fence for months reading threads and researching as much as I could about this mod before I got off the fence. This was mainly because I never owned a drive by wire vehicle before personally. I was also afraid this was just another one of those “performance chips” that all over eBay that are nothing more than a resistor or something that does very little in the way of performance other than some that just advance timing a bit. This device completely changed the feel of my driving experience in my truck, which had plenty of torque, but just didn’t feel as fast as it should. Now, every time I get in it, I’m happy with the performance and it now feels like it should. The cool thing is that you can tailor the throttle response to suit your driving style. I tried several settings, one at a time, and left them for a couple of days to evaluate before moving on until I found the sweet spot for me. If my daughter or wife were to borrow the truck though, I would likely put it to a more stock setting just because they wouldn’t be used to driving with that level of responsiveness. For me personally, it was the best money I’ve spent on any mod so far to this truck, other than maybe the exhaust, which also added greatly to the driving experience.
This was the missing link that brought everything else together, and I’m sure most just assume (like I did initially) that it’s just a snake oil product. I like it so much that if it ever broke, I’d HAVE TO replace it immediately, lol!
|Just ordered from Jason. This is my second Ridgeline and although I'm fairly satisfied with the power on and off road, there have been many times when I've either been trying to pull out into traffic, merge onto the highway or get around an 18 wheeler and the lack of throttle response has left me in some hairy situations. Looking forward to trying it out.|
|I purchased this product from Jason and I even had a chance to test it for a month. I was very very sceptical at first until I installed this product. It's a plug and play device that connects under the hood. near the upper passengers side. Just like a lego. I did not feel like going for a cold air intake and or the exhaust mods just yet. The Sprint Booster does WORK! Fellow Ridgeliners need to give it a try. Plug it in one week, unplug it the next, then plug it in again. You will find a difference in TBR (throttle body response). I am a very happy customer. Give jason a Call. Thanks again Jason,
|Well, I just bought one and I must say how impressed I am with it. The throttle response is amazing and there is no more lag and you don't have to put as much pressure on the pedal as before. I let my mechanic, who also has a Ridgeline, try it in his truck and he couldnt believe the difference, so he went ahead and ordered one also. I ordered mine on saturday night and had it on tuesday. Installation was a snap. If it took 45 seconds to install it was a long time. Thanks again Jason|
|So I ordered a sprint booster for my '17 ridgeline 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 ridgeline 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.
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.
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 Honda 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).
