VW Golf Jetta MK4 Gas 1999 - 2004 3- Way Adjustable Sprint Booster Throttle Upgrade for Automatic Transmissions
PART NO LONGER AVAILABLE
AT 1999-2005 All Gas Engines
SprintBooster is a Plug-n-Play Performance Upgrade for your Model Year 2000 or later VW vehicle. This is an upgrade that you can feel with normal everyday driving, not just on the track at redline like most other performance upgrades!
Most cars in the 21st century have replaced the more conventional throttle cable for an ECM (Electronic Control Module) that translates how hard the pedal is pushed into electronic signals in order to provide power to the wheels.
The ETC (Electronic Throttle Control), which is also known as Drive-By-Wire, has the unfortunate downside of delayed response and subdued acceleration, which can create problems in certain situations such as up-hill starts, quick gearchanges and overtaking.
SprintBooster overcomes this throttle response delay for your vehicle by providing crisp, on-tap acceleration for whenever the driver demands it.
All our Sprint Boosters feature Selectable Programming! This enables the user to choose between 3 throttle response settings: Program 1 (moderately improved response), Program 2 (aggressively improved response) and Stock. The included switch can either be connected all the time and mounted on the dashboard, or connected only when switching and then removed.

About Sprint Booster
Most cars in the 21st century have replaced the more conventional throttle cable for an ECM (Electronic Control Module) that translates how hard the pedal is pushed into electronic signals in order to provide power to the wheels. The ETC (Electronic Throttle Control), which is also known as Drive-By-Wire, has the unfortunate downside of delayed response and subdued acceleration, which can create problems in certain situations such as up-hill starts, quick gearchanges and overtaking. Enter the sprint booster!
Sprint Booster is the first and leading product in the industry to improve throttle response by reprogramming the acceleration signals and has managed to gain hundreds of thousands of happy customers throughout all those years.
SPRINTBOOSTER OVERCOMES THIS DELAY IN THROTTLE RESPONSE BY PROVIDING CRISP, ON-TAP ACCELERATION WHENEVER THE DRIVER DEMANDS IT.
INSTALLS IN MINUTES. PERFORMANCE IN SECONDS
RESPONSE TIME IS DRAMATICAllY IMPROVED
EASIER STARTS ON HILLS MORE CONFIDENT PASSING
A MORE SATISFYING DRIVING EXPERIENCE
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.
The Sprint Booster might very well be the “smartest” gadget on your car. It is a device 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.
The device comes with 3 Acceleration modes (Off- Sport - Race) and 36 acceleration programs in total (18 manual & 18 automatic) that ensures flexibility and overall control over the car’s acceleration. The new Special features ‘Valet mode’ & ‘Pedal lock’ mode allows the driver to disable the acceleration ability (pedal lock) as well as limit the rate of acceleration (Valet mode) when he is not driving his vehicle.
ON THE ROAD
Its installation is extremely easy & and takes only a few minutes! You simply plug in the Sprint Booster between the accelerator pedal module and the harness and you’re ready to go! Your car can be restored to stock just as easily.
Sprint Booster changes the throttle response in the low to mid rpm range where cars spend a majority of time. As a result, your car feels faster, reacts faster and drives faster. This product is engineered to enhance the driving experience by providing increased acceleration time (eliminating delay) between the drive by wire throttle pedal to the actual electronic throttle body. In our case, Sprint Booster made the driver input to the throttle approximately half a second to 1 second quicker, essentially making the instant acceleration feel like a lightning quick cable to throttle body system. On vehicles equipped with the cable to throttle set up you could simply tighten the cable to eliminate any slack and create faster throttle response, think of Sprint Booster as the high-tech electronic equivalent. The best way to describe the feeling is to think of any vehicle you may have driven equipped with an aggressive ‘sport’ more option, that is the type of rapid sensation Sprint Booster provides. This product does not alter fuel or ignition in your vehicle, it’s a simple plug-n-play mod that delivers instant response throughout the power band, making accelerating and rev matching incredibly more fun!
• 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
3 ACCELERATION MODES
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 Acceleration mode comes with 9 programs / steps. 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.
The Acceleration programs are switching by pressing the 2 arrow buttons on the top (left to decreace and right to increase).
By selecting the desired acceleration program in each mode the driver can fine-tune By selecting the desired acceleration program in each mode the driver can fine-tune each mode according his driving style (eg select SPORT -9 & RACE-5).
TYPE OF TRANSMISSION
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 automaticaly adjust the programs according the type of transmission selected. There are 36 programs in total (18 for manual transmission & 18 for automatic transmission).
When ‘Manual’ is selected a red dot will appear on the screen to indicate the manual transmission. When ‘Automatic’ is selected there will be no red dot in the screen.
VALET & PEDAL LOCK MODES
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).
PEDAL LOCK MODE
The Pedal Lock mode provides extra protection against unauthorized vehicle use. The Pedal Lock mode provides extra protection against unauthorized vehicle use. The driver can deactivate the acceleration ability of the vehicle through a 3 digit PIN.
The menu for VALET & PEDAL LOCK MODE is accessed when the vehicle is stationary and in OFF MODE by pressing the 2 arrow buttons simultaneously.
