In January we introduced the C6 Corvette Sprint Booster Power Converter to all of our customers. The Sprint Booster, which offered outstanding throttle response improvements over the stock C6 Corvette setup has since be redesigned and is now available for both automatic and manual equipped C6, Z06, ZR1, and Grand Sport Corvettes. The key addition to the redesigned Sprint Booster is the ability to choose from three different acceleration programs; stock, acceleration program one, and acceleration program two. With the stock setting, your Corvette will perform as it did before the Sprint Booster was ever installed on the car. Step it up a notch with acceleration program one and now you will see an improved throttle response ideal for moderately aggressive driving. If program one isn’t enough switch your Corvette’s Sprint Booster to acceleration program two and be prepared for an even greater throttle response that is recommended for aggressive driving.
The C6 Corvette Sprint Booster Power Converter comes from the factory set to acceleration program two. You will know that the Sprint Booster is set on program two by a red LED indicator light that will appear on the switch. By simply pressing the button once you can switch back to the factory settings (LED light turns off) and once more will activate acceleration program one (LED light turns green). Once the desired program is set you can either leave the switch connected to the Sprint Booster, which will allow for quick program changes or remove the switch entirely. The Sprint Booster is designed to be able to adjust on the fly so you can cycle through the different acceleration programs while driving. This is the advantage you lose if the switch is removed. Be aware that you should not change programs with the Corvette’s accelerator pedal depressed because the behavior of the accelerator pedal will be instantly changed.
Installation of the Sprint Booster and switch requires double sided tape and a single tie wrap that is included in the box. Simply insert the Sprint Booster into the accelerator pedal, plug the switch into the white socket of the Sprint Booster, mount the switch on the dash using the double sided tape, and secure the excess wire so it will not interfere with your foot or motion of the pedals. Detailed instructions are also included in the box.
The Sprint Booster is not designed to add horsepower to your Corvette but it will increase the throttle response allowing for much quicker acceleration out of turns or from a stop. With one installed, you can count on faster lap times at the track or better reaction times at the drag strip.
