Explanation
The "Throttle Response" curve shows the speed at which an engine responds to the driver's pressing of the accelerator. Deficiencies are evident here, especially at times of strong acceleration.

Throttle response has less to do with how much power a vehicle has but rather how long it needs to fully release this power, with petrol engines frequently performing better here than diesel ones in this regard.

Usually, a naturally aspirated engine is more powerful than a compressor or a turbocharger, a fact which is however not often noticed as the cars are given different response times by the manufacturer. But even when the same engine types are compared, ultimately a difference in response will be determined, as there are a wide range of factors that influence the response of an engine.
The throttle response of a stick-shift or a semi-automatic car can be easily enhanced simply by changing gears in the case of a small car trying to overtake another car for instance, by moving from 5th to 4th gear.

Most vehicles are equipped with a drive-by-wire system. Here, acceleration is achieved by way of an electric signal and not by the familiar Bowden cable, something that most people are not aware of. This system is called ETC or ECM. The problem is that these systems often suffer from a significant signal delay, which the PedalBox can compensate for perfectly. This means that more energy is available to the car once again.

So "how" exactly does this box improve the speed of the signal?
Where does it plug in? The OBD port?

This is copied from the website

The PedalBox works by taking the signal from the pedal and modifying it to an efficient signal setting you choose. Thus the 18 settings you can select from.

this is how you would install it



1. Turn off the ignition and wait five minutes.

2. Loosen the plug connection from the original plug adapter.



3. Attach both OEM connectors to the accelerator pedal sensor.

4. Lay the cables in such a way that they are securely installed and are not interfering with anything else.

5. Attach the PedalBox at a comfortable height in relation to the driver's seat.

Why would we need this when it's already a standard feature with a dedicated button?

The chart is misleading because it doesn't show how the throttle box curves compare with the 3 OEM throttle maps (Efficient, Sport and Sport+)

That's a good point/question.
Which OE throttle mode is being compared to on that chart?
