These days, most vehicles are “Drive-by-Wire” (called ECT or ECM), and not cable driven like the old days (called the Bowden cable). The modern systems typically suffer from excessive signal delay, which is where the PedalBox steps in and is able to unlock the vehicle’s full potential. What exactly does the PedalBox offer? The “Throttle Response” curve shows the speed at which an engine responds to the driver’s pressing of the accelerator. Poor response is clearly evident, especially under hard acceleration.
How Does PedalBox Work?
The curves chart in the photos illustrates the speed at which the vehicle reacts to throttle input. It’s not about engine power but rather the time it takes for the engine to realize that power!
Significant improvements can be felt even in the ‘City’ (green) mode. The ‘Sport’ (orange) and ‘Sport Plus’ (red) modes offer even more of an improvement than the ‘City’ mode, and all selectable by the driver.
The blue line indicates the standard responsiveness of the throttle from the manufacturer and can also be simulated by turning the PedalBox to its ‘OFF’ mode.
Is Installation & Setup Difficult?
Installation only takes a few minutes in a few easy steps. The PedalBox comes pre-programmed and requires no complicated setup procedures, the fun starts NOW! The new feature PerfecTune makes the perfect setup: In just 3 easy steps you can get the right setup, perfectly suited to your car’s accelerator. So precise and easy!
The popular throttle tuning can now also be operated with your smartphone, including new features. And, of course, you are always up-to-date with the most recent software releases.
