Has anyone tried Sprint Booster on there TSX?

What is Sprint Booster?
A Sprint Booster is a small plug-n-play electronic modules that is installed on the drive-by-wire (DBW) module of your gas pedal. It modifies the electrical signal that goes to your car's computer to increase throttle response and improve the feel. The typical DBW lag is completely eliminated

Have you done the Hondata reflash on your TSX? How much did it cost you..
Most of your questions could probably be answered via Hondata's website. It's definitely worth the money. Prices vary by what year your TSX has and whether you'd like to opt for the reflash by an authorized tuner (if applicable) and/or the flashpro unit itself.

I emailed Neetronics in Oakville who's a supplier for Hondata Reflash and this is what he responded.

"The price of the Hondata reflash is $315 plus tax and shipping to and from
Hondata is $120 no tax. For the TSX I will need the key the immobilizer ring
and the ECU. There is no tuning need for the reflash is come back from
Hondata with a map already installed. As for the removal and installation we
charge a extra $100 the car will need to be kept here while the ECU is down
there. It will take 3 working days is there are no delays in customs. What
people normally do is just bring the ECU, key, and immobilizer ring and have
it shipping out."

Thanks chetan for that!

Hondata Reflash vs Sprint Booster; decisions, decisions, decision!

Reflash looks like it will run you about $475 (includes reflash and shipping) but you will be without a car for 3.5 days.
Sprint Booster will be $300 (includes product and free shipping) and you will be without a car for about 1 hour while you install.

Doesn't look like the community has tried Sprint Booster.

I've had to sprint booster on my car for a bit. Sprint booster is just a bandaid, all it really does is trick your car into thinking you're pushing the gas more than you really are. It doesn't fix throttle leg it just gives the illusion of more horsepower.

I have actually tried Sprint Booster and it's useless. All it does is amplify the throttle. When you apply 25%, it makes it 40% or 50%. It doesn't reduce the lag. It just makes the car twitchy and hard to drive at low throttle. The reflash or FlashPro are 100 times better.
