|2003 - 2009, Lexus GX470|
The Sprint Booster is a Plug-n-Play Performance Upgrade for your GX470. This is V3 latest model.
We've had many complaints about the GX'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 GX 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 GX, being one
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.
