    I have 3 on my Tacoma. I love them. Best bang for the buck you can get, well aside from NOS (Saving for a NOS kit).

    Gadget(Owner or URD I think. I do know that he knows his shit) says it's legit. People have said that it gives you full throttle when you push half way or so.

    I wouldn't spend the money on it. I would buy a sports car.

    A friend of mine installed it on his Hyandai Genesis, and he loved it. All the reviews online are about BMWs but nothing on a Tacoma

    It is a plug and play module that cuts out the delayed throttle response with drive-by-wire technology.

    No, but a lot of the drive by wire systems that I have driven ( the worst one was a new 6 series BMW) had the worst fking throttle lag on the planet, and it had a split second lag as well when releasing the throttle, almost ended in disaster since when I release the throttle I expect INSTANT release, not OK I will get to that in just a sec!.

    I cant say I have really felt that in a Toyota, but I have felt some bad electric throttles that I absolutely hated. You will understand once you drive one that has bad delay....

    It's more than just for a race track. A lot of the German cars have a lot of delay in the drive by wire system - to the
    point where you have to change the way you drive. Its almost dangerous when you make a left across traffic, pulling out, etc. I don't think it's necessary on the Tacoma.

    You are so right. People will never adjust to the tiny change just like they didn't adjust to a hydraulic clutch. Everyone is going to die.:rolleyes::D

    They are basically to give you a linear pedal response, such as a cable driven throttle body, or more than linear response. Gives you the ability to remove the negative bow from actual throttle position compared to commanded throttle position.

    Mine will have a linear response with my next tune, since the ProEFI will be controlling the throttle body. If i didn't have that control, I would do something like the Sprint booster, or the Blitz throttle accelerator as well.
