Question Diablosport throttle boost? Anyone using this tune?

I was playing around with my Predator this afternoon and saw that it had something called throttle boost. Has anyone messed around with this? I want to bump it up to 100% and see what happens! But I'm scared I'll blow something up.

Hello nitrox28! Your throttle boost is the same as throttle sensitivity; just another phrase for the same meaning. You will notice better engine to throttle input/response but because of the 100% fun factor, fuel economy will suffer if that is of any concern. If not, have at it and enjoy!

So is there a "sweet Spot" I should set it at? 10 or 20 percent maybe?

I maxed mine out. I leveled my truck and put 33" MT tires on and was sick of the sluggish feeling. I honestly didn't initially nitice a difference. But when I set it back to factory settings, it was very significant.

I run both my RAM and Super Bee at 15% increase and it has done away with the lag that I used to feel when you stepped on the gas.

I had mine set at 13.5% when I originally messed around with it but had the truck in for service so had put the factory tune back on. Completely forgot to put it back on so thanks for the reminder of what I need to do tomorrow lol. It is definitely a nice little pick up with the throttle response time.

I run mine at the sensitive also. At the dragstrip you can tell a HUGE response to reaction times over the stock setting.
