BD throttle sensitivity booster and button

Well I just ordered the booster and the switch. (from RSD) I was on the fence but after studying it a bit I have come to a little different conclusion than most have on here.

Most are stating that the booster just increases the level of input. 25% = 50%. But If you look at BDs explanation of the booster and Torque Management, I believe that it is slightly different.

It looks to me that Fly by wire is choked by the "rate" of throttle increase. Meaning, that if I push the throttle to 25% it takes some time to get to 25%. This is to done to reduce emissions and ease the shock to the drive train. The sensitivity booster reduces or eliminates that time.

So, If my study is correct 50% (on the booster) means that it reaches the input level in half the time and 100% means it become real time. (I would guess the 400% is where the multiplying of the input comes in.)

Several have stated that they can not break the wheels loose without the booster on at all, but that they can with it in place. That is what got me thinking.

This would all mean that the pedal participates in torque management by taking time to reach whatever input you give. According to several articles that I have read, Torque Management is a bunch of parameter in several devices that do not limit torque but help the truck safely get there.

The pedal has 6 wires for input. IF the pedal were JUST a dial, it could be done with 2 wires. I wonder if the pedal gives a real time reading and a delayed reading. (this is were I am, and this is were I am going) The booster just looks at those and decreases time on the delayed time set.

anyway, I will give it a shot.

not much interest in this...................
Well I would like to note two things here.

First, I ordered from Rollin Smoke, made the last click and there was a knock at the door. Not really but pretty close. Standard shipping and got it in two days. I have ordered a few times from James and it is always like that.

Second, This thing DOES make a difference. While I still do not know what it does to work, I can tell you that It will spin the tires on 50% or 75% and it will not on "0". That again makes me think it is not just adjusting the ratio on the pedal. (is not 25% =50% or something like that) I have left it at 50 for now. Having the button allows me to switch between the levels and you are absolutely able to tell a significant difference in each. (I just went through the 0, 50, 75, 100 settings. Have not messed with the 400)

Anyway, I like it!
any questions, let me know.

Thanks for the feedback and of course and always the business

I swear by these little units, stock or tuned, you can tell the difference when it is turned off and then leaning over and hitting the button it feels like someone put a spark under your throttle pedal.

You have to try the 400%, its crazy sensitive lol

Thanks for the "review". I have been on the fence as well, but I think I'm going to pull the trigger on one.

You won't regret it. I love mine and I am like James tuned with EFI. This little box packs some punch. I used to leave my truck on the 100hp tune now I run mine on 50% with a 30 hp tune, that's how much of a difference it made. I also recommend purchasing from James @ RSD, he has the best costumer service and will stand behind what he sales.

Just curious; does this show up as traceable to a factory tech?? In other words, if it were removed, could the warranty still be voided?? I really want to keep the 100k warranty intact (completely) on the new rig. I know that's not nearly as much fun...but...

No this will not effect your warranty. It is not like a tuner and does not write anything on the ECM. It just plugs into the pedal mapping sensor on top of the fuel pedal. It is very simple to install and you can uninstall it in 3mins. One of the guys on hear even had there dealer install it for them. Hear is a good trend about it with lots of great info.

I still wonder if it is affecting Torque Management.
I have now noticed that my DEF seems to be going faster.

Someone else would have to tell me. If the computer/s ask for more torque, will that decrease the EGR %?

I have the Torque App but I have not been about to see EGR % or demand.
one side note, I can see the pedal. but, there is like 7 pedal readings and they are everywhere no matter what I have the booster set at. So, I just drive it and like it.

If this reduces EGR (and increases DEF) That would be another benefit. I would take that trade all day long.

well... the DEF tank measurement seems to be a bit odd to me; effectively, the top 1/2 gallon of the tank isn't measured; therefore it stays on full for a very long time before it drops at all; which may give you a false perception in how quickly the DEF moves, as it's not a linear movement from the "full" mark.

Look at this video; it describes in it full.


Probably gonna order the Throttle sensitivity booster; I've heard great things about it.

Installed mine today on 50% and if anybody is on the fence, jump. This makes a world of difference on throttle input. Should of had this waiting when I bought the truck. Ordered from RSD, thanks James, shipping was fast.
