I asked Clark what the difference was between the TOM's and Blitz and he said he wasn't really sure, they're made by the same maker but the timing on each could be different.
Nick, it changes the dynamics of the car and makes it quite the beast correct?
There is no timing with the LTS. The LTS unit essentially amplifies the throttle response such that if you were on SP3 mode, your IS-F would be under full throttle at 1/2 the full pedal motion. I believe there must have been an OEM agreement between Blitz and TOMS where Blitz makes the electronic components and brands it TOMS. As a result TOMS sells theirs for a premium despite the name difference. Both units look identical other than the name that's on the screen. Carson Toyota also says they are the same units just re-branded.
It does changes the way car feels. That's why I posted in an earlier message that this is one of the mods you really feel right away. Again it does not give you more power, however it does change the way the power is delivered. If you put it on SP3 mode, you'll feel the surge of power when you step on it as opposed to being evenly distributed. Personally I like ECO and SP1 mode the best. SP2 and SP3 mode can be a little too touchy for me and you end up feeling the car jerk a bit when you let go of the throttle.
Installation was pretty easy. It only took me 20 min to install. It would have been faster if it wasn't so awkward to reach the top of the accelerator sensor. I actually looked at a DIY on the 2nd gen IS board however some of the pics they show are wrong. The actual sensor is located on the top of the accelerator assembly. Just be careful when pulling things apart. I mounted my control for the LTS just above where the button is to open the trunk or the fuel cover.
Could be my imagination, but after I installed the Joe Z I feel the car actually picks up faster especially when I put my car in ECO or SP1 mode. The other day I ran a japanese sport bike (not sure which one) pretty hard in SP1 mode. Must be 600 cc or so. He jumped on me at first but I actually was neck to neck with him by the end of it.
Off topic but dropped my Lexon front lip to get painted today.
