Default Sprint Booster?

Hello guys, second post here on the forum. New Ram owner as of March 17th. Love the truck. I was wondering if anyone has bought one of these sprint boosters. It's supposed to get rid of the lag on the drive by wire throttle. I talked to someone today that works in the performance industry and they brought some in to try out before they sold them. He drives an Audi. He said the difference was amazing. I told him what I drove and he said they have sold quite a few to hemi owners and they are also amazed with the difference.
Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
here's a link the the website www.sprintboosterusa.com/c-322-at.aspx

These items are news to me. My lag was eliminated by a cold air intake and a programmer.

Not Sure that it would be worth $350 for what this does, I would invest in a Predator or other tuner instead. The only reviews on their site are for smaller european autos. Just my 2¢

Its a con, get a programmer.

The Euro kids use them, because they can't get "programmers/handhelds" they have to get a custom tune, which is extremely expensive.

A good tune from the Diablosprt will do the same thing.

Thanks for the replies guys. Tuner sounds like the way to go. I hear that the Diablo is the way to go, but not available for the 2011's yet.
