    It plugs between the connector and the pedal assembly.

    What motivated you to get it? Or just having fun?

    Frankly i was tired of the mushy pedal/slow response to merge into traffic, pass on the highway it took alot of preemptive revving and downshifting to do it safely.
    As of right now on dry pavement setting 3 to 5 makes a big difference setting 9 is just retarded. The engine just takes off wildly.

    A friend has a similar problem with his newer dodge diesel, you hit the throttle and by the time it downshifts and revs up you lost your chance to pass someone. It has very little turbo lag just slow throttle response, dealer called it torque management...

    I understand that the car wasn't designed to be a performance machine, in daily driving in town start, stop, light to light the settings are perfectly acceptable but in the rare occasion you need a little more get up and go it is realy appreciated.
    It really wakes up those 78 HP's
