Like most modern cars, Hyundai and Kia have turned to electronic throttle pedals for most of their cars. Electronic throttles have their ups and downs, for example, some people notice throttle lag with electronic throttles, where pressing the pedal can sometimes feel like it's not moving at the same time as you press it. Fortunately, one perk of having an electronic throttle is that it's possible to tune your pedal response, not only does this help to get rid of throttle lag, it can also completely transform the nature of your car.
This is where an electronic throttle controller comes in!
Connecting inline with your factory throttle pedal and supplied with a 1.5m long detachable cable, you can mount this controller basically anywhere within your reach from the driving position allowing you to change between any of the 5 fine-tuneable driving modes at the press of a button.
These modes are:
P1 - Comfort Mode
The smallest level of throttle boost - 9 levels of fine tuning
P2 - Sports Mode
Moderate throttle boost - 9 levels of fine tuning
P3 - Race Mode
Aggressive throttle boost - 9 levels of fine tuning
EC - Economy Mode
Decreases the throttle input to save fuel - 9 levels of fine tuning
NOR - Normal mode
The controller is bypassed

Wow, this brings the car alive! Even if it is no more powerful, the placebo effect is amazing. Just fitted this last night in 2 minutes and taken for a short test. Immediately noticeable and impressed. The throttle lag is gone and it backs up on boost much quicker after every gear change.
(My vehicle is 1.6T DCT)
If you happen to still own a stock vehicle I highly recommend this product hands down be your first purchase.
Works great still on mine with my tune and everything I’ve thrown in the mix. It’s very aggressive in the highest setting but is exactly what I was looking for to combat the red-light lag for the odd challenger pulling up on me
Tristan has done a great job with the E.T.C!! Overall appearance is excellent, product fitment is a super easy, 2 min install (longest part is deciding exactly where to mount it) and the performance of the product is instant!! Even if you weren't planning on going too crazy with engine mods this will definitely make your Kia/Hyundai much more enjoyable to drive, by getting rid of the lethargic acceleration from standard set-up!
My Cerato GT, with nearly all the parts Tristan has to offer fitted and his custom ECU road tune done I couldn't be happier!! Performance, sound, fuel economy and handling is more than I expected from a Kia!
For $175, exceptional value! I'd recommend to anybody that wants more driveability. With ECU tuning, res/cat delete and throttle controller brings big bangs for very little bucks. Thank you Tristan!!
Best way I can describe it to anyone that like a mechanical feel is installing a quarter turn throttle on a bike, instead of destroying your wrist trying to rev the rings out of a bike you get instant response....
I think ill settle on 2.5 for now, seems comfortable with all the zoom I need off the lights. 3.9 is fine, overkill in my opinion around town but will be fun on a track or up some tight twisties.
Mods I have to compliment are RaceChip, res/cat delete, intercooler res delete.
