I was wondering if anyone has considered or already purchased the Toms Linear Throttle Control System? I know the Blitz one was discussed on here a while back but I'm curious if anyone knows exactly what this does or if they've considered purchasing one. It seems almost like an upgraded sport button...I posted a link to Carson Toyota with a little description. Any help would be great :D

hey here is what i have to say to that blittz throttle control. Its got very good throttle response i mean, u would feel a jolt a hard jolt on the car but it doesnt make the car any faster. your car in first gear just has better acceleration in first gear also but gas millage becomes horrible with that plugged in.

Ecu

A company call icode has new ECU out for the ISF. Although I have not seen any data, It is supposed to be fully tuned. Therefore, may be a better option. They also have something called a big throttle that adds 5 hp. Take a look at their website at www.icode.jp

Thanks for the info jwain. Because the F's transmission is already damn quick and really smooth, I'm not sure how much it would help on the F. On other Lexus' like the GS, LS, etc. I would see it having more of an effect on the transmission and throttle control timing.

Thanks for the link. I can't read Japanese though. From what I understand, there is only one company that has been able to crack the F ECU with decent results. If there is another one out there (perhaps such as the company you mentioned), it would be interesting to see what their tuned ECU could do comparatively

Tom's Linear Throttle Control

I was wondering if anyone has considered or already purchased the Toms Linear Throttle Control System?

I purchased my WEDS from Tom's of Hong Kong and they had the Linear Throttle Control for sale. I did not get one. What it does is it makes your throttle opening more sensitive. You have three settings to choose from, the last one giving you wide open throttle almost as soon as you step on the pedal. The fact that it did not add power, did not entice me to buy the thing.

Guy at Tom's says though that all his clients who installed the throttle controller on their IS350 are very happy.

I guess it depends on what you need it for.

Icode ECU

I called Icode yesterday and asked them about it. They told me that thier ECU would increase 20ps (HP) and due to its tuning, it will beat the M3 hands down. They also told me that due to it tuning, transmission shifting is also improved. The improvement feeling when driviing is suppose to feel like a different car. My IFS is in order and will arrive in Mid May. I intend to put the Big throtle (inrease of 5hp) and the ECU as soon as I get it so can let you know. I am not sure they plan to sell these products in the US but may want to keep a watch or contact them to see..... The price was 300,000 yen ( about $3300 for t he ECU) so a bit steep....
