I got fuel cut set at 20 and personally it's still too slow for my liking.

The big deal to me is when you are trying to go through the gears at WOT the faster the revs drop the easier it will be on the clutch as it is not having to deal with the engine (just rotational mass).

I want a direct relationship between the pedal and the throttle body.

Now I will admit I am super impressed with things as they are. The rpms no longer climb 2-300 rev when shifting fast before engaging into the next gear. (Man that pissed me off beyond belief) and the throttle response is 90% where I imagined perfection to be.

I wish they made the car this way omg.

For those who have used, are using or are thinking about using Sprintbooster or any other brand that does the same thing.

For the record:
I bought sprint booster many many months back because I was looking for the car to have better throttle response. It took me less than a day to realize it's BS. Makes the pedal extremely sensitive and you lose your ability to modulate the throttle and everything becomes a nuisance to drive smoothly. It also does nothing for throttle hang or shifting, all it does is make the tb open faster with respect to the amount of pedal you are inputting. I returned the sprint booster and thought I'd never have the car drive like I wished it did. Eventually (after I had bought everything I could for my baby) I decided to go with Ktuner. I even called Ktuner and he walked me through the set up process because I was having some complications as I am horrible with computers lol. What a great guy... honestly. And another thing I love is that with sprint booster you have this cord with a button and that really makes the car look kinda Ricer IMHO. The more stock I can keep everything the happier I am. I may have a bunch of mods but I try and keep things looking as oem as possible. Because then when people find out what the car can do, they are truely surprised that they never even saw it coming.

There were a couple people who even said F sprintbooster and save a bit more and get Ktuner. But I didn't listen back then. Well now I have to say, holy mozes they were more than right. I had no idea what I was missing. And I am the most computer illiterate person on this forum probably, but with determination, researching our forum, watching some videos online and having a decent computer (which I bought for 450$ brand new 11.6" Lenovo 2.1ghz) I was able to do it.

My only problem I have now is there are so many parameters that can be adjusted I want to know what they all do and would like to tinker with a lot of stuff now lol

You won't like less than 20 - at least I didn't. Makes the car extremely 'jerky' when inching along in traffic in a low gear etc. The clutch won't benefit or be harmed either way. All the clutch does is engage / disengage the drive line. Interestingly enough, for the best performance in say a 1/4 drag strip run - you actually want LESS RPM drop when shifting gears. That's the reason speed shifting came about. The faster you can disengage / rengage and hit the next higher gear, the less RPM drop and the engine stays in it's power band longer as well.

FYI I'm getting ready to break down and do the J37 IM / TB swap as well.

Get the manifold and tb man. I personally feel it gave the car a lot of mid range power. And definitely power overall. I'm really happy with it.

I ordered it all from heeltoeauto.com. They even sent me a gift mug with a little note wishing me all the best with the install. Really impressed by them. Great customer support also when I called asking them questions I had about the manifold swap.

Well I changed the throttle compensation to 0% and fuel cut to 20. It is something you gotta get used to because I have been driving for a year now with that rev hang and got used to the rev hang. Guess I will try to get used to this change but I probably will end up leaving it like that because now it feels like it's a cable driven throttle body.
