Arrow Sprint Booster review for 370z 7 speed AT

Hey guys here it is... first let me just say im french so im english is not perfect so pleaaase dont flame me

i got the Sprint Booster installed today and wasn't expecting much to be honest. the install was a breeze, had to remove the pedal assembly but real easy stuff. take a small screwdriver and remove the little plastic cap so you can access the 2 10mm bolts at the bottom of the pedal and voila. Now I was surprised when i pushed on the pedal and got instant power my wheels started spinning even with the vdc on, normally it barely spins with the vdc on

The pedal response is definitely quicker. i can say it did cut the 1sec response when you smash the pedal in half if not more. I tried it in Auto and manual and tested every gear in manual mode. didn't really do nothing in 5-6-7 but 1-4 was very primed in low rpm's and im very happy with the results. btw it does not add hp or nothing its just throttle response but you do launch faster and rev quicker thats no bullsh*t.

Note that i tested this baby on race mode (red light shown in picture) and green light is like bmw's sport mode, and gray no light its deactivated. to turn the SB on you simply click on the led and your good to go. 1. off 2. green/sport 3. red/race

The pedal is more sensitive on race mode but after 5 min driving around i got it. i wouldn't recommend letting your GF or BF drive your Z on race mode because it does feel like the Z is really alive and wants to go crazy lol

So after driving around burning rubber unintentionally i realized that wtf Nissan didn't give us a sport button for the real enthusiast drivers? anyway i got this gadget for the week end if i find its garbage he told me bring it back monday for a refund. but im keeping it...

paid 350$CAD installed. i know it might be expensive for some but you gotta pay to play

Results:
At low revs, the engine responds at approximately half the time in comparison to before.
The delay time whilst accelerating in 3rd and 4th gear and the engine in the mid-range, is almost zero.
Big differences in the higher rev range.
Improved response for downshifts and safer overtaking.

So just for the record, can you confirm that this engine has plenty of bottom end?

That's a great review, i'm happy there's another satisfied customer, pretty much everything you described holds true for the manual transmission too. First time i stepped on it, I wasn't expecting that much response either! Makes all the other mods seem that much better, fun factor way up! Have fun with it

If my tune does not help out much, I will be doing this right after. The fact that it is adjustable is like the icing on top of the cake, plus I am sure lighting up the tires puts a nice sh*t eating grin on your face haha.

Not to be a downer. I just read the description of the product, all it does is recalibrate your pedal to make it more aggressive. You can do the same thing simply by hitting the gas pedal harder. A tune will actually change the tip in, resulting in more power and sharper response. Wouldn't money be better spent in that area?

My Prius has the same feature. It feels cool, but it doesn't do jack $hit.
