|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 got home and installed the SB, and all is well. I drove it around all day and no problems. It feels like a new truck. A while back when I put my lift kit on, I said it was exactly what the truck needed to create a more
aggressive apperance. The SB now allows me to back up the aggresive apperance with a more aggresive driving ability. I don't have to 'mash the pedal' in order to get the truck to drop into 4th or 3rd to accelerate. I'm very happy with my purchase!
Could I have just driven more aggresively, yes, but it would require me to keep my foot to the floor
whereas the SB makes it a lot easier to accelerate. A LOT EASIER! I have recently been beat off the line by sedans and other trucks and I hope this
will give my truck the 'kick in the ass' it needs to win. Since I don't have to push so hard to accelerate, my foot is more readily accessable to hit the
brakes. Without the SB, my foot would be pressing harder to go just as fast which would take me longer to hit the brakes. Thanks for the outstanding
service and communication!|
|I got one of the last two you had before and am ecstatic with it. For those of you on the fence, just do it. Not only does my RL feel peppier, but so far after 3 tanks, I'm getting 25 or so more miles per tank. I might be wrong, but it could be because I don't push it to the metal that much anymore. I let a buddy drive the other day, who had previous drove my RL a half a dozen times before, and he couldn't believe how much quicker the truck felt. He thought I somehow squeezed more power out of her. Anyways, for all the Haters that have knocked it without trying it for themselves, I am glad I bought the booster and didn't listen to you guys.|
|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).
|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||
