Sprint Booster Version 3 for Ford
It is a device for Ford that 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.The design of the 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 ultra compact design allows the driver to place the selector switch anywhere on the dashboard according his personal preference and convinience.

WHAT IS SPRINT BOOSTER
Automobiles 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 gearchanges, overtaking, etc.The Sprint Booster aims to overcome this throttle response delay for ETC-equipped vehicles, providing crisp on-tap acceleration at the driver’s disposal.
Sprint Booster might very well be the “smartest” gadget on your car.

Sprint Booster connects on the accelerator pedal connector. All you need to do is disconnect the OE connector from the accelerator pedal and connect Sprint Booster in between (one side connects to the pedal and one side on the OE connector).
Sprint Booster is aimed at all drivers with ECT-equipped cars, who are after a safer and more exciting automotive experience.
- At low revs, the engine responds at approximately half the time in comparison to before.
- The delay time whilst accelerating in 3rd and 4th gear and the engine in the mid-range, is almost zero.
- Big differences in the higher rev range.
- Improved response for downshifts and safer overtaking.
- Overall safety and more fun on the road!
HOW IT WORKS
Sprint Booster comes with 3 Acceleration modes/presets ( OFF / SPORT / RACE ):
OFF mode – Sprint Booster is deactivated. The response of the car has the factory settings.The LED of the Selector switch is OFF.
SPORT mode- Sprint Booster provides improved response up to 30%. The LED of the selector switch in Sport mode is Green.
RACE mode – Sprint Booster provides improved response up to 60%. The LED of the selector switch in Race mode is Red.
Each mode (SPORT – RACE) comes with 9 steps-programs so the driver can choose the one that suits his driving style (18 programs for manual transmission & 18 programs for automatic transmission in total).
This allows the driver to fine-tune each mode (SPORT – RACE) according his needs by selecting one of the nine different programs on each mode.
You can select 1-9 in SPORT mode (Green light) and 1-9 in RACE mode (Red light) with '1' being the least aggressive program and '9' the most aggressive one.
Each program adjusts the response by 3-6% so it can be fully adjustable and customized by each driver.
The Pedal Lock mode provides extra protection against unauthorized vehicle use. The driver can deactivate the acceleration ability of the vehicle when it's stationary through a 3 digit PIN. When Pedal lock is enabled the acceleration gets disabled and the vehicle stays on idle until you enter the correct PIN.
The Valet mode limits the acceleration of the vehicle by 55 % - 65% - 75% (comes in 3 selectable levels) .It is activated/deactivated through a 3 digit PIN. By limiting the acceleration there will be a significant reduce in vehicle's performance (Power and Torque).
Sprint Booster modes and programs, are transmission type specific for better function and performance.
The driver can select the type of his vehicle transmission through a slide switch located on the right side of the selector switch. The device will automatically adjust the programs according the type of transmission selected. There are 36 programs in total (18 for manual transmission & 18 for automatic transmission)
The compact size allows the driver to place the selector switch anywhere on the dashboard with the use of the double sided tape.
Sprint Booster also offers the option to the driver to completely remove the switch from the device. In this case the device will work with the last settings stored in memory. For example , if the driver disconnects the selector switch while in SPORT-5 (SPORT mode- Acceleration program 5) , the device will keep as default the program SPORT-5.
