Has anyone tried one,the reviews sound great. I hate the throttle lag, especially with larger tires.

I made up 2 wires, removed 2 intake manifold bolts, inserted the round end, put the bolt back through & tightened em up, ran the other wire end to each fender ground. Just doing that made my "DBW lag" be reduced by 80%. The theory is: our 3rd gens have plastic/composite air intake runners & the air rushing over the plastic created a static electric charge (like plastic bedliners do), & the DBW sensor is right there. By grounding the air intake, it reduces the static electric charge.

The way pedal scammer works is that it takes the peddle position interrupts the signal and tells the throttle a new position. So if you depress the pedal 20% it tells the throttle you've depressed it 30%. It doesn't actually improve throttle response the way you could with a tune.

Here's the deal, you could achieve this with your foot. And to boot, once you get used to the new peddle sensitivity from it changing the positions, it won't fool you the way it does at first when you're like OMG my pedal is so much better.
