I thought someone posted some pics of this installed above the gas pedal. Can someone post them here or text the pics to me 717-319-2100? I'm trying to help someone install over the phone, but they need a visual.
This should help out more. This took a lot of time and many takes without messing up the words, lol. Harder to talk sometimes when you're focusing on the video!Sounds like there are some good options for installing this if you can’t do it without removing anything. To throw in my 2 cents - I did it without removing anything by laying on my back in the footwell and reaching up with a little flathead screwdriver. Since the plug only has a latch on one side you just need to carefully unlatch it and can use something to push it up and off. Putting the new one on is also pretty easy just align it and pull or push down. I would add a picture but the video above shows it more clearly than I could get with a camera
Not a silly question. I'll admit, it doesn't have a silly name, but it works. Here is another post about this with a video that explains what it does and why it helps the delayed gas pedal response and feel:Silly question, but what is the issue and WHAT is the Sprint Booster?
My 2 cents, the booster does exactly what they say it does. Very easy to install, makes the drivability more pleasant. Doesn't seem to effect the gas milage either way. I will keep it, towing a travel trailer is much
better with it. My only con would be the cost, a bit pricey. Also those who are concerned about warranty
issues, if you have to take in to the dealer just take it out, it only takes a couple of minutes. DUH!
My 2017 RTL-E Ridgeline's sometimes pronounced hesitation has bothered me since June 20, 2016, the day I picked it up from the dealer.
So I'm dying to try this product
This is my second Sprint Booster (Thanks Jason!) My first was a V2 SB that had 3 settings, off, street and race. Like another post here, I had mine on a tuned Mini Cooper with a 6 speed manual. The stock throttle response was crazy slow on the Mini especially when comparing it to the last "wired" throttle control car I had. It seriously transformed the feel and response in that vehicle making shifting much smoother and making quick acceleration feel as it should. The V3 SB on my 19 BE takes a major chunk out of the lethargic throttle response and the ability to have more adjustability on the newer version is really nice. I've been tweaking it here and there but for now I've kept it on the green 7 setting. I agree it's pricey, but since this is my daily driver, the SB is going to be the only modification I do to the engine since it really helps the driveability.
- If you still have questions, the video above will help too. You can order your's here below:I currently own a 2019 RTL-E, and just purchased a Sprint Booster for it. I used to have a '08 RL, and installed one of these on it, and loved it.
Professionally, I do contract work for Caterpillar Fuel Systems and load software files onto engine ECMs using a program called Vector CANape. This is in order to run tests and simulate real world engine conditions on 3516 engine test benches. So I have a bit of an understanding of electronic engine controls, but I'm not a genius.
So I guess I used to own it, loved it, will own it again soon, and I claim to know how it works.
