    +1 a sprint booster or other throttle remap makes the throttle more twitchy sure, but the big difference for me is that when I do a quick stab of the gas pedal to downshift, I actually get a damn blip.

    Between the drive by wire delay and the standard e46 eco throttle map you really have to punch the pedal and hold it for half a second to blip the throttle for downshifting. That ish drives me crazy.

    For what it's worth I drove the Pizza car and can confirm that it drove smoothly.

    Well, now I may have to try a sprint booster because this is one of my biggest complaints.

    The first time you drove it was with the Shark Injector tune, which I only kept for the throttle response. I tried a sprint booster on top of that and it was like coffee + mountain dew = cocaine. Way too touchy.

    The last time you drove it was after I pulled the shark tune so OE throttle settings.

    Yeah it makes it a little harder to be smooth on the throttle but makes downshifting better so a bit of a trade off.

    I picked up one of these during a bimmerworld sale but haven't played with it yet:

    Some of you need to commit to your heel/toe angle and stab it like a Hitchcock movie. You have to kill your downshifts. Every one of them with an intentional action. None of this dabbing. Thatís for Tiktok. Proper heel/toe is for real drivers of ZHPs.

    On a more serious note: I like the normal throttle mapping. Luckily on my S54 I can customize non sport vs sport as I have that button. I heightened the mod to top end in normal rolling mode so I still had better less jerky initial throttle actuation then livens up as I go further. Then in sport mode the OEM factory settings were overly sensitive at the bottom which resulted in many of clutch bucks from parking lot speeds making me look like a newb in more ways than I ever thought. For sport I lowered initial sensitivity then really made it aggressive past 50% so I could still retain precise control in corners as I donít need more than 50% throttle to modulate a high G corner.

    Dragged the coupe out of hibernation. Passed the state inspection & emissions test so we're good to go for two more years! I reset the throttle adaptation thanks to a post over the weekend. I have a Shark injector but haven't installed it yet. I've accumulated a large pile of parts over the past two years to throw at it!

    lol - you always had a way with words...

    But this is how I am with it. Never had a problem with rev-matching with the stock throttle mapping. It doesn't even take any extra effort as I use the side of my foot and that provides enough of a push to get those revs up.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.
