How to improve throttle response
If you drive an automatic car, especially one with a CVT gearbox, you may notice that the car takes a while to move after you step on the accelerator. This is true even if the power output is high, or if it is turbocharged. The problem is the worst at a standstill. The throttle response is poor. The reason is that the gearbox allows slip as there is not enough engine torque at a low rpm, or the engine may stall.
The answer is to improve torque from idle. One way is to increase air flow. The throttle, a flap that regulates air, will not have to be opened as much as before, if the air flow density before it is made higher. The Surbo, with its output jets to compress air, and internal vortex to pull air in from the air intake, makes this possible. The engine management system senses the increased air flow, and adjusts the fuel input accordingly. The result is a bigger engine effect, with more air and fuel to match, unlike the old flat spots or wasted fuel while trying to get the car going.
The Surbo increases torque at all engine speeds from idle, and as power equals torque times rpm, the power is increased, and it takes the engine to its RPM limit with 1/2 throttle! You will never have to floor the accelerator again. Engine flexibility is increased at any rpm. While cruising, the accelerator (which controls the throttle opening) becomes feather-touch, and when driving hard, it is razor sharp.
