has anyone ever used a throttle booster?

im pretty sure that the grande throttle is electronic. if so, has anyone used a throttle booster/sprint booster. cant remember exact name. just thinking of it now. they plug into the electronic throttle, and meant to give a improve the throttles accelleration and response.
could be another mod for people wanting to improve performance

Load of sh*t. On the same levels as plug in resistors that add 200bhp. If it improved throttle response do you not think for the price the manufacturer would just fit them as standard?

I know when i had remap at red dot they offered me different throttle options.
progressive smooth or like an on off switch - so it can be done. Stayed standard with mine to keep it smooth.

wouldnt the on off option just create immense lag? unless you were at the correct rpm, say you used the on off and used the throttle in 2nd and the computer made it such that you floored it then youd just go hugely slower
