Honestly, mine has minimal lag & in Track mode, it's instant for the most part...now, in gear from a roll there can be lag from time to time. My raptor had the same deal..damn automatic transmissions.

Re: Sprint booster

If I would have found this thread a few years ago. We have a 2011 GC 3.6v bought new and lived with the throttle response issue grudgingly. Have been looking at 2016 Overland w/ 3.6v, as the reviews say they upgraded the engine and tranny for better response and shifting. Then one guy on her says his 2014 with Sprint Booste responds better then his buddies 2016?

Looked on other vehicle forums and other vehicles have the same issue and the SB seems to fix it.

Why do not the manufacturers use a programer like this?

It's honestly the main reason I bought it. It still cycles occasionally but nowhere near as much. It's also much less noticeable when it does.

Re: Sprint booster

I would say the main reason is fuel efficiency. The hard you push that pedal the more fuel you burn and the worse that vehicle looks for the environment

I'm the guy that said that! My friend purchased the SP for his 2016 after he drove my Jeep.

UPDATE: Installed it, and loves it!

Now I got to get him to join this forum!

Re: Sprint booster

Had by dad and step brother drive the Jeep today. Had them both go from a stand still with it off and then put it in red and had them do the same. They were both amazed by the difference. My step brother owns a Z06 so he was as impressed as I'd expect him to be... lol

I'd told him any time he wants to race, I'm down! As long as there is a foot or more of snow on the ground. Haha

Re: Sprint booster

Out of curiosity - anyone been to a dealer with their sprint booster attached? Any comments about it from service techs?

Funny you should ask that question. I brought my Jeep in today for the shiftier recall. They also said I needed 4 updates. I did not remove the SB but I did turn it off.

All work was completed, nothing was said about the SP and the updates did not affect it.

My biggest concern about the SB is what would happen if it failed???? I did contact the company that sold it to me after I purchased it (https://www.sprintboostersales.com) and there answer was they've never heard of one failing. Which to me isn't really an answer! I'm not going to worry about it but I'm wondering if it did fail if you could just disconnect it.

Re: Sprint booster

My SB is probably for sale. I just traded my HA at a crazy loss for a 2 door Willy's. The HA was like a hot chick. *Nice to look at but wouldn’t shut up. *Constant beeping and warnings!! *Annoying!! PM if you want a good deal on the SB.
