I wonder if it's more responsive than tightening the throttle cable...

Tightening a throttle cable doesn't add responsiveness, it just removes free play that shouldn't have been there in the first place. One thing I notice more than any additional responsiveness is that the rev's drop to idle slower after releasing the pedal.

Doesn't removing the "free play" = "more responsive" than stock? :D

Not in my book. Throttle response begins when the throttle plate opens. Pedal response maybe??:p
Throttle response is usually referred to as how quickly the engine responds to pedal input.Thus factors such as cable tightness, atmospheric conditions, and in the case of carbs more than F.I fuel mixture(since most F.I. systems are computer controlled) all relate to an engines throttle response.

I was wondering this when the corvette came out with this fly by wire technology...if your at wide open throttle and the computer has a brain fart,are you screwed?No I am not this stupid but what if?It'd be a good reason to outrun the cops huh?

Is this an argument yet? Throttle response, by definition, is how the engine responds to throttle movement. Until the slack in the cable is gone or the knit sock in your shoe is compressed, there is no movement. I guess we can agree to disagree.

I hooked up a boston 10" sub with a JL 250 amp. The amp is bolted to the back seat back and taps into the rear speakers. On the head unit I turn the bass to 0 and adjust the sub via the amp. I also had my trunk dyno matted. It did make the trunk lid heavy so when you pop it open it just opens slightly. THey show you how the hook up works at the JL web site.
