Trifecta tune AND Sprint Booster V3 together?

I've been reading and watching videos about the performance properties of the Sprint Booster V3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqjI1Q6WSqs

Has anyone else tried this gadget? Happy? Upsides & downsides?

Have you combined both the Trifecta (or any) tune with the Sprint Booster V3?

Waste of time and money. If you want a larger throttle opening just push the accelerator a bit more. Zero added power and no appreciable improvement in drivability.

Agreed. Right off the bat it *feels* like the car is faster, but over time your brain will adjust and the car will go back to feeling like normal.

If you want to see what this affects, take your cold side charge pipe/intake off your throttle body. Now have someone sit in the car and turn the key to the run position but don't start it.

Now have them put the throttle to the floor as fast as they can. The time it takes the throttle butterfly in the throttle body to go from idle to full throttle is what this is supposed to improve upon. On an LE5, you can replace the throttle body with the throttle body off the LSJ. This throttle body is slightly larger and fits the opening on the LE5s intake manifold (which is larger than the stock throttle body's opening). There are power gains and throttle response gains to be had from this kind of modification.

"Mike" likes it, which seems to make it a big deal.

That YouTube video is on Facebook. That brought more attention to this. It was just recently done so that's probably why the uptick in these posts.
