For years, the guys over at Superchips have worked tirelessly on providing the American market with the very best in vehicle tuning solutions. But some people remain wary of electronic upgrades, with time invested and wiring gremlins being primary forms of concern. In order to alleviate these fears, as well as simultaneously show how easy it is to upgrade to some of their products, Superchips has released a step-by-step video on how to install its Amp’d Throttle Sensitivity Booster.
Designed to deliver unrivaled pedal response, and packaged to appeal to a plethora of makes and models, the Superchips Amp’d Throttle Sensitivity Booster is being heralded as one of the simplest and most effective “seat of the pants power” upgrades on the market today. The science behind this software is simple: Pedal lag remains just as real as turbo lag. By kicking response times up a notch (or four) turbo spool kicks in at a much faster rate, thus removing that “laggy” feel often associated with modern drive-by-wire throttle systems.
As the video illustrates, the ease at which the Amp’d system can be installed makes it one of the premier plug-and-play options on the market today, and being that it easily clips into OEM connectors, wiring headaches are non-existent. A few key takeaways that also help make this kit so impressive are its stealthy size, proven performance across the entire power band regardless of RPM, and the ability for drivers to toggle between 50% and 100% throttle sensitivity.
Another key feature is the optional Amp’d switch, which unlocks a whopping six levels of throttle sensitivity instead of two. Modes of boost signal adjustability include Stock, Low-50%, Medium-75%, High-100%, Valet, and 400% “Wow Mode”. All of these can be controlled via the push of a button.
Being that Superchips covers such a vast array of automobiles with its aftermarket applications, we strongly suggest reviewing the laundry list of platforms on their website to ensure that this upgrade is right for you, and be sure to select a kit that includes the Amp’d Switch, since it only runs an additional $60. All told, this kit appears to be on the verge of becoming one of the best throttle upgrades on the market today for fans of boosted power and easy installs, and at just $349.00 (with the aforementioned six-mode switch attached), is incredibly good value for the amount of control you receive in return.
