Sprint Booster has been awarded the coveted 2009 SEMA Show “Best New Performance Street Product,” having been chosen over 1228 other entries. Sprint Booster is imported and distributed in North America by Mississauga, Ontario based Johnston Research and Performance, Inc. (“JRP, Inc.”)
Derek Johnston “JRP” president said, “through the effort our staff has put into Sprint Booster, we’ve taken a product we all know is excellent and have accomplished the right things bringing it to market. We are all proud that a Canadian company has been honored with this prestigious award at a venue as significant as SEMA.” (Specialty Equipment Manufactures Association) Sprint Booster is engineered to enhance the driving experience by providing improved acceleration by eliminating the delay inherent in drive-by-wire accelerator technology. This is accomplished by continuously measuring and converting the digital signal while providing the ECU (Electronic Control Module) with a new and altered signal for much quicker throttle response. The actual device contains electronic circuitry that is installed between the accelerator pedal and the ECU in vehicles equipped with electronic throttle control. Sprint Booster is an entirely new product that is environmentally correct. After installation there is absolutely no change in factory emissions and it is fully certified having obtained the demanding, German TUV approval for gas, diesel and hybrid vehicles.
Sprint Booster represents completely new technology, with no direct competitors. Enhances throttle response by increasing pedal input sensitivity, delivering more impressive off-the-line performance that drivers can genuinely feel. Installation is simple plug-n-play takes only a few minutes and rarely requires tools. Sprint Booster delivers instant response throughout the power band, making acceleration and merging with traffic a totally new and confidence inspiring experience. Shift points are redefined and maximized when paired with an automatic transmission. Standard, CVT and DSG transmission versions are also offered. Brand new for SEMA was a programmable version with Stage 1, Stage 2 and “Off” settings.
Johnston was careful to acknowledge that “while Sprint Booster won an award for ‘street performance’ it is the ability of Sprint Booster to eliminate throttle response delay that is consistently the most appreciated feature.”
Sprint Booster is application-specific and available for more than 200 late model vehicles currently sold in North America from smart cars to hybrids to trailer towing diesels. MSRP is $349. “JRP” can be contacted at 905-822-7223 X 250.
