    I realise there will be much flaming about this but I popped one of these units on the car today. I had one on my cammed VE SV6 and really liked how much more fun the car felt to drive. Just feels to hastened up instant throttle response and has worked well on the W375. Before all the haters hate I realise that hammering the throttle would probably have the same effect it's just nice to get instantaneous output from minimal throttle input which improves the driving experience making the fun funner. All I got really.

    Can you explain what it actually does for those of us who don't know?

    It essentially shortens the throw of the accelerator....like a quick draw throttle. Claims are that hastens butterfly opening however I'm a tad sceptical on the data available. For me, just improves the driving experience.

    So it means you're essentially going flat out all/most of the time? Can you adjust it or turn it off?

    Had a similar unit on my Diesel Hilux, called a Sprint Booster. Improved the driving experience 100%, best way to describe what it does is you get instant response from the throttle - which was particularly noticable in the Hilux. The unit turned off when i changed the battery and it felt like driving a mack truck.

    As I understand it yes. Need to remove it before Holden see it. Having said that, they have to convince whoever that the stealth caused the issue. So a faulty water pump should be fine etc. Then again, we all walk the warranty risk with mods.

    Even thou an old thread, thought id chime in and let you guys know i have the v4 controller and boy is it good... for the price i think its a damn good mod. The lag is GONE on the SSV redline.... can be put into fuel economy mode for petrol saving by lowering the rpm acceleration or put it to 13 for an immediate take-off. Happy overall :D

    I'm looking at fitting 1 in a month or so in my VF2 Redline auto (320RWKW), does it just raise the RPM at idle, or does each setting increase throttle response? I've seen a few video's of other brands from overseas but haven't found much on these new V4 units.

    Does not change anything with idle or tune,it shortens the throw of the electronic accelerator. Standard open throttle is flat on floor,this allows that point to be moved so for example full throttle will be at half way to the floor or as little as one inch depending on how you set it. I have one on my BMW and it is great. I got pissed with throttle response after moving from a cable accelerator and this fixed it. I set mine to street mode (sprint booster) and now the accelerator feels and feathers like a cable set up. In race mode it's WOT almost instantly at touch so great for drags. Much more responsive driving experience and money well spent IMO.

    It dumbs down the tune, which is fine if you want a point and go thing. Doesn’t really make sense with an $80k investment but hells yeah would be a cool toy for a P-plater with an underperforming POS... oh, that is if it were legal and you were not culpable for installing such a device.

    .
    So, it has no effect at all on the tune? All it does is reduces the distance you move your right foot? WOT in as little as 25mm...That's not improved throttle response. It's moving your foot less, for the same result
    I haven't tried it and don't intend to. So, I may be totally wrong. But this seems like a total waste of money to me.

    Looking at installing one on our vf ss series II, I’m guessing stealth 4 best option. We have the idrive in our gxl cruiser and it has made significant changes.

    I really don't see the point in these things, at all. 426Cuda has summed up my opinion very great:

    We have one installed on our gxl cruiser and the throttle response is a great enhancement. Very noticeable. Going from that into the commodore can feel the lag. We have it tuned a cam, sports exhaust, air induction but after experiencing the difference with the cruiser am looking at it for the commodore.
