Throttle management is utilized in a variety of tuner automobiles that aren’t meant to have a sporty efficiency but can take the beating. As an example, my 2007 Honda Odyssey’s engine will not be very efficiency oriented. Sure, it has VTEC, but it surely isn’t actually the engine you wish to flooring at a drag strip. Nevertheless, with a correct software program tune, you might undoubtedly push out an additional few horsepower.

Now for some automobiles, house owners set up Throttle Management items to get higher MPG. Earlier than that, individuals who drove with a heavy foot used a bit of wooden or a brick which they positioned beneath the pedal within the again in order that you might solely push the pedal in a lot.

May it hurt the engine?

This query was circulating by means of, a very talked-about RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrid discussion board. Person Seanbeng87 requested, “Is it a good suggestion to put in EVC ultimate9 throttle controller on 2022 Hybrid XSE?” Now clearly a model new, excessive tech RAV4 Hybrid will not be going to have the identical response to an previous civic which is generally analog.

You might have little-to-no management over the engine revs as a result of the system will function the engine on the pace it determines it wants at any given second. If you’d like extra management over the engine, do not get a Hybrid.” Now assuming you wish to set up a Throttle Management unit for efficiency functions, it simply wouldn’t take a look at the mathematics. The hybrid system is particularly dialed in for effectivity. I might see one thing like this engaged on the non-hybrid TRD RAV4.

Additionally, hybrids would not have tachometers as a result of engine pace will not be decided by its RPMs in a hybrid. That’s why consumer Dr. Dyno commented saying, Yep, the brief reply is the fuel pedal is not related to the engine throttle in a hybrid. That is additionally why hybrids haven’t got tachometers.
