Velocity Adjustable Throttle Booster

I am very interested in the Velocity for my E90. ( http://www.pyspeed.com/product-p/rd-8010.htm ) It appears to do what the Sprint Booster does with the additional advantage of being highly adjustable with four maps (settings). Like Sprint booster, it is a very quick and easy install and de-install. The only other viable option that deals with the problem of the annoying throttle lag, that I'd like to address, is the BMS Powerbox. The BMS Powerbox gets strong reviews on this and other forums. My problem with that product is that its install/de-install is much more complex and time consuming. I want to be able to de-install easily so that I would have no fears (about getting caught violating the warranty) when going to the dealer for service. Anyone on this forum have experience with the Velocity Adjustable Throttle Booster or does anyone wish to weigh in on this subject? I can't seem to find much in the way of product reviews. Thanks.

Not at all. I really want to do something about the throttle lag/delay that I find so annoying. I like to do a lot of research before spending my hard earned $$. I look to this forum now for advice and I always have. In retrospect, I should have titled the post: Dealing with throttle lag in the E90.

seems like it would work exactly the way you want it to, and install easily. I was considering one myself, until the pbx came out.

Could you elaborate? Can a tune up fix the throttle lag?

Yeah, but I was hoping to hear from anyone who has installed the Velocity and can attest that it works as advertised before I spend my hard earned $$. How did you decide to go for the pbx?
