I will wait for a few more reviews. Not sure if this thing is worth the money. For the most part in sport mode I'm pretty happy with the response. I just wish this thing shifted a little smoother.

As you probably read I ordered one yesterday.

I only use the Jeeps (sport mode) when merging on the hi-way / passing. It is a lot more responsive in sport, but I don't like that the rpms are are always higher then in normal mode. It's also to jerky for me especially when it down shifts to a stop. Almost feels like you are breaking unevenly and it's to noticeable to passengers.

My main concern is the slight lag from a dead stop and sometimes when passing. I'm hoping the booster solves those issues. Other then that I drive pretty conservatively.

I'll let you know how it works out!

Re: Sprint booster

The main question I have concerning the article is that the man points out that he has never used one. I would take his review with a grain of salt for that reason and go with reviewers that have them on their vehicle. For a man that had no personal experience with the Sprint Booster, he seemed pretty biased against it. I could write a full page about my opinion of pit bulldogs but since I've never owned one or been attacked by one how good a review would it be?

Exactly! That's why I said it was opinionated

Re: Sprint booster

I would also like to point out that the author's statement about a jerky throttle response and the inability to feather the throttle has not been my experience. Mine is silky smooth and I have no problem feathering the throttle off road. BUT, if you prefer the stock throttle response off-road just turn the unit off. Three settings off, sport and race. Choices can be nice sometimes.

Re: Sprint booster

You guys think there's any chance of blowing the engine with this thing set to race mode (red) and putting it in sport mode while flooring it? I tried it yesterday but never noticed it go past 6000rpm as that's when it shifts. I'm just curious since I like to do it from time to time but don't wanna continue if this could cause a problem. I believe the rev limiter is still in play with the sprint booster attached no?

Nope, no chance at all

Re: Sprint booster

Received the Sprint Booster today. I haven't installed it yet (don't have time) will do it tomorrow. I noticed that one of the ends does not have any openings on it. (white end) I'm confused on how that end goes on. Does it just snap on and no prongs go into it? Thanks

It hooks up to the harness on the gas pedal. One end goes to the pedal, other to the harness

Seems like a real easy install just thought it was odd that the end that goes to pedal has no openings.

Re: Sprint booster

Okay installed the Sprint Booster (very easy install) I had no idea what to expect, just took a short ride and here are my first impressions. Started in green mode.......OMG this thing works as advertised. NO lag at all from a dead stop nor from any speed up to 60mph (wasn't on hiway yet) When you step on the gas the vehicle responds instantly. What I like is that I drive pretty conservatively and take off moderately and can still do that but if you need to really take off just hit the gas a little more. It's kinda like getting kicked in the rear and this is with the V6. The red mode may be to much for me when you step on it the rpms shoot way up. I'll probably just stick to the green. Tried to duplicate it by turning it off and hitting the gas harder but wasn’t able to get the same results the vehicle just responds better with the Sprint Booster!

DallasGC from what I noticed I like this much better then driving the Jeep in sport mode my observation is you have every bit of throttle response but much smoother shifts.

I ran the controller to the storage compartment so it’s out of sight but very accessible.

Is it worth $300.00???? I'm looking forward to putting in some more driving time but from what I observed so far, That's a big HELL YEAH!
