Buddy Club E-Throttle booster

We had the chance to install one in a Honda Fit where the owner(a man in his 50's) was complaining about how laggy the throttle response was, especially after shifting gears. Now he can chirp tires with the honda Fit and says that the throttle response feels just like a cable driven throttle body. Here's a lil video we put together. Next will be in an accord

Please Please Please make this work. We have been going back and forth with these things since our cars first came out!

I hope it works too!! I have a thread going about this asking the same thing as everyone else. I am going to get the e-throttle booster soon so I hope it's not a waste of money!!

so all this does is advance the throttle by the increment you set? how does it reduce lag in the DBW system though? if the car is idling at normal rpm... if you jam on the pedal there would still be lag but the RPM would just end up revving higher than without the booster.... right? enlighten me kiet.

is this also the same item that is supposed to allow the throttle body to open completely under WOT?

the drive by wire system is mainly focusing on voltage/resistance determined by how you apply your pedal. by allowing you to control that resistance, you than can adjust based on pedal feel how much voltage is applied. this system allows you to advance the voltage applied based on your pedal feel that fits your need at that time.

I believe blitz makes a better product that does the same thing but more digitalized. however i'll have to test that out too..

So is the purpose of Drive by wire is to better fuel sufficiency?

so the e-booster actually reduces the detected resistance by boosting the voltage...

can you program different resistance levels based on pedal pressure? i.e. for light pedal pressure, only a small shift in resistance to maintain some lag + throttle smoothness, but under high pedal pressure boost the voltage so there is essentially no lag? or can you only program a single resistance setting for it to follow?

It accomplishes quite a few things focusing around precise control of the throttle opening. It integrates into the TCS and VSA systems to close throttle opening without having to resort too much to retarding ignition timing when traction is lost. Also it helps emissions especially in manual models by holding the throttle open longer between shifts and it helps rev match on upshifts too.

I have an auto so I am going on what I have heard about various honda models with dbw throttle.

I wonder would this be better than the sprint booster? i mean this has an adjustable throttle control so i can control the fuel economy, and lag. hmmm i say someone should test both and see which one is better. IMO i think this buddy club e-throttle boster is better than sprint booster.

Is the e throttle booster a plug & play dea?? I read up on the blitz which resets itself everytime the car is turned off so but i havent been able to gain any further info on the buddy club version (which IMO looks like its alot better quality than the blitz)

the lag felt by the DBW is definately one of the pet peeves I have about my car!

not yet on an accord. but like I said, I don't see why it can't happen. We did it on a fit and it worked flawlessly.
