How does the Mini Cooper Sprint Booster work?
The Mini Cooper Sprint Booster improves acceleration by continuously measuring and converting the digital signal provided by the ETC's potentiometer, and providing the ECM with a new and altered signal. (ok....what does this actually mean?). Think about a 100m race, your Mini Cooper is similar to the runner, while the Sprint booster does not make the car faster (not a steroid to make the runners go faster), the Mini Cooper Sprint Booster is like a tool that improves the reaction time between the shot of the gun and the runner taking off. So in nut shell, you feel that you are taking off much earlier and faster.
Why install the Mini Cooper Sprint Booster?
Vehicles in the 21st century have replaced the more conventional throttle cable technology for an ECM(Electronic Control Module) that translates pedal travel into electronic signals in order to provide power to the wheels.
The ETC system (Electronic Throttle Control) - also known as drive-by-wire - has the unfortunate downside of delayed throttle response and subdued acceleration, creating problems in certain circumstances such as up-hill starts, quick gear changes, overtaking, etc. The Sprint Booster aims to over come this throttle response delay for ETC-equipped vehicles, providing crisp on-tap acceleration at the driver's disposal.
The Mini Cooper Sprint Booster might very well be the "smartest" gadget on your car.
The design of the Mini Cooper Sprint Booster allows for its easy installation in all models, without the need to cut any wires (plug n play) or intervene in the automobile's electronics (it does not affect other systems such as electronic injection, ABS, etc.).
The Mini Cooper Sprint Booster connects on the accelerator pedal connector. All you need to do is disconnect the OEM connector from the accelerator pedal and connect Sprint Booster in between (one side connects to the pedal and one side on the OEM connector).
Mini Cooper Sprint Booster Results
- At low revs, the engine responds at approximately half the time in comparison to before
- The delay time whilst accelerating in 3rd & 4th gear & the engine in the mid-range,is almost zero
- Big differences in the higher rev range
- Improved response for down shifts and safer overtaking
- Overall safety and more fun on the road!
