One or two rather. Things I'm wondering about the booster is does it make the tranny down shift any different or does it hold just build the power sooner?
Is this just noticeable on take off? How about when your cruising and come to a small grade and you step on it just a little to hold your speed will it down shift sooner? Later? Does the engine build boost quicker?
I'm looking for something that makes the engine respond faster but doesn't make it down shift sooner as if I'm trying to floor it.
Yes I'm on the fence lol I'd like the 5.9 response back.....

Has anyone noticed over time that the truck compensates for this device? When I first installed mine I loved it, however after a few months I noticed my "dead pedal" was coming back. Could be my truck it has a laundry list of issues, but every time the dealer has had the truck and updated the ECU for one thing or another it's fine for a few more months(w/ or w/o the BD).

Now that I have had mine installed a while I noticed this as well. I thought this was just me getting used to the difference but it does seem that the dead pedal has started to come back and the initial sensitivity is not there or as strong. I just purchased the switch and plan on installing it this weekend and will do the relearn process again and see if it makes a difference.

Just got my truck back from the shop bc it wouldn't pass smog, they updated the PCM again and the throttle is a little better but haven't put the BG back on yet. I think the PCM is learning this is on there but in theroy it shouldn't be able to tell. Guess I'll find out in a few months is it relearnes.

For reference, If you decide on buying the booster the button is definitely a nice add on, I often turn mine down when it rains or on a muddy road because the truck will just break traction instantly with it turned on.

Thought once you're deleted and tuned there was no need for this booster. Thought efi took care of all the hesitation/ dead pedal crap

I run it with EFI, we have tried to tune the pedal sensitivity but I still run it with the tuning, might just be me but I can tell the difference.

For those of you that installed this and the switch, where are you putting the switch? I don't see a logical place to put it, so I'm looking for ideas. Thanks.

Thinking about buying one of these. Do any of the vendors offer forum member discounts?

Also anyone have more information on the truck learning about the increased sensitivity? How are you getting around this?
