    Sensitive Throttle on Boosted applications

    Who all has the problem? Its a huge problem on positive displacement blower cars, especially with a cam and alot of boost.

    I have the 100% fix for it, car has stock throttle responce until YOU want it to jump. I can set it to only make boost with your foot to the floor or it can be regulated to any throttle position you want for the "snap" feel.

    If there is enough interest I'll build the product for resale, if not then I can just build them one @ a time as I need them.
    Fwiw, I just finish a 426 KB car that made 780rwhp and 840TQ. The car's pedal is 100% stock with no grey area of the pedal that the car just decides it wants to take off on you. I see people complain all the time that their "boosted" application has an area in the throttle that the car "takes off" on them. This product will 100% eliminate it.

    Let me know if there is much interest in having them made for re-sale.

    This is an important consideration for me with a S/C'd forged 6.1. I'd like more installation details and pricing info.

    It has to be CNC'd so the more I make the cheaper it is.
    I'm looking for an idea on the amount of interest right now. Installation is maybe 15 minutes and very easy. It fixes the problem completely without having to do any tuning in the ETC table.

    I would hope its $350-$500. I really hope the price is close to the cost of a hand held tuner.

    I have a Pro Charger getting installed this week, I would believe it will have a surge verses a progressive powerband! I'll take one before I get it tuned! I'm ready to be your voice for the Stroker, S/C'D crowd!

    So this is more of a progressive N/A feel rather than an instant power band surge, if so very interested.

    A little more details would be greatly appreciated.

    Your setup is exactly the setup that has the issues horribly. I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about.

    Nothing like that. If I explained it here than another manufacture will jump on it. From the phone call I just had tonight I was told this is a huge discovery on my part and to go ahead and apply for a patent.

    Please don't wait for the 2+ year patent approval process to get something to market. At minimum submit a provisional patent that'll give you 12 months to get the patent submission finalized.
