2011 VE SV6
Hi everyone

I haven't heard a single negative thing about throttle controllers so i thought why not, they're cheap lets do it. Problem is, theres a few options and i don't know whats better. I have a manual ve SV6 from 2011.

At the time of this post my main options are

- Stealth 4.0; $190
- Mace; $175
- iDrive; $299

I think stealth looks the best but they all sound pretty good. iDrive would have to be pretty special to pay nearly twice as much. Anyone have opinions? Also how do these work on cars that have been dyno tuned.

I can only speak of the stealth 2.0. The stealth 3 or 4 maybe be different.

The stealth 2.0 gets power from the OBD2 port (Although they do sell a double obd2 port adapter) or you can hardwire it as it wouldnt be to hard, It only utilizes the power and ground.

I read the Mace gets its power else where? Maybe the Electronic Throttle where you have to plug these into?

So one difference there, is would you prefer to have something plugged into the OBD2 port 24/7 or have it free.

Have not tried the iDrive.

Doubt there will be much difference with how they work.

I hear the 4.0 has added security features but dont know what they are for. My 2.0 worked perfectly in my VE SV6 and E2 Clubsport.

If you like the look of the Stealth then I would definately go with that, no point having something on your Dash that you hate to look at lol
