Nice to have, but...
First off, this doesn't provide any horsepower. So, it is hard to rate the 'performance gain'. I give it a 3 on 'notability'. I put this on my wife's '16 Ecoboost stock. With the sprint booster on level 9 race mode and the car in regular drive, the car automatically feels like it is in sport mode. The is no lag once you step on the pedal. With the sprint booster on level 9 sport mode, I couldn't really tell a difference with the car in regular drive. There was still some sluggishness, but not a lot. Putting the car in sport mode and putting the sprint booster on level 9 race mode, I noticed an immediate difference. The pedal was extremely sensitive. This made the car feel like it did have more horsepower, but again, it does not. It didn't take much to do a burn out. I had to change the level down to 6. Having the car in sport mode and moving the sprint booster to level 9 sport mode, again, I noticed a difference. The pedal is still sensitive and I needed to adjust the level on the sprint booster. Since this is my wife's car, she drives an automatic and does not like to use the paddle shifters. So leaving the sprint booster on level 9 race, allows her to have the feel of the car always being in 'sport mode'. Due to traffic conditions, I never tested this with the car in race mode. I am sure, given I noticed the difference with the car in 'sport mode', having the car in race mode will make a huge difference. The install is easy and should take you 15-20min. overall, the product does what it is supposed to. If you like driving fast and don't want to void any warranties with your car, this is a good investment, however, with that said, I don't think this is worth the $290. This may change things if your car already has other mods. From what I have read, it makes a big difference. I am debating on adding one to my '06 GT manual that has all bolt on's. I am told, I would notice a difference, but, feeling the $290 is just not fully worth it.
