Sprint Booster V.3

One of the annoying things about my 2011 4S is the lag time between fully depressing the accelerator and the response. Research lead me to a Sprint Booster V.3 which opens the throttle body in a more responsive and quicker manner, similar to the old cable operated throttle bodies. It cost about $300 and I'll report back with my results after I receive and install it. I saw that there was another post with a similar issue, but I did not want to jack the thread.

I installed the Sprint Booster V.3 into my 2011 Panamera 4S late last week.* The install was very simple and I tucked the wire to the controller beneath the driver side console and double-side taped it in the black area so it is not visible unless you know it is there.* I took it on a "spirited drive" with the device off, then in "sport mode level 5" and then "race mode level 9."* It took a lethargic lag time and changed the whole personality of the car.* It is immediately responsive and in "race mode" the lag is completely gone.* I am very impressed with the performance, although I was skeptical when I purchased it.* I highly recommend it if the lag time, even for a non-turbo car, bothers you.* I can post pics of the final install, but it is too simple.* I was just very careful when I disconnected the original wiring harness from the accelerator pedal prior to installing the new added section.* Rock on!*
