So, I have this fitted and I have a rough idea of it’s purpose but unsure what I can actually do with it. There are buttons on there, but they don’t seem to do much, just numbers going up and down constantly . Tried to fine a manual but no luck. Anyone able to shed more light?

Search for Tom's Linear Throttle System on Google.

There is quite a bit of info on their site

Been all over their site, lots of great info but as I said, no instructions on how to use it.

I confess, I didn't read it.

Never come across it before.

A prime example of modifications / additions that Japanese owners fit.

 

Do you need it, whatever it does ?

As far as I can make out it increases throttle response, almost as if you’ve pushed an extra inch without pushing an extra inch. It certainly makes it shift with a very light foot. Doesn’t actually increase speed or torque, just makes it a whole lot more responsive. Looks like 4 different modes from eco to sport which will change throttle response times. Looks as if it’s fitted somewhere in the loom, so really don’t want to drag it out. Might help with fuel consumption a little, but doesn’t seem to cause any harm.

No. I would leave it well alone.

I rather like the slower shifts.

I have active suspension settings on mine.

I don't use them on the Alphie; trying for the smoothest ride.

I have another car with sports response settings.

Goes like hell but the shifts are not smooth, just 'sporty' !

 

Good luck with it.

Hopefully it will be 'trouble free'.

Normally they are plugged inline the gas pedal sensor port which is on the gas pedal, normally they are just plug and play so you might want to check there.

This is the installation picture of similar system, pretty simple.

Is does not do anything else apart from changing the throttle response.
