Just wondering,,
Is the 320SLK 170 series fitted with a "fly by wire " electric throttle pedal, or is it a cable operated system.???

The sprint booster is a device that changes the curve of the throttle,,as it stands the MB throttle is logarithmic, and the sprint booster converts it to a linear, so that you get a more responsive pedal. It does nothing to the engine at all, just a more responsive pedal

You just unplug on a MB on the throttle plug in the engine compartment and plug it in series,,I have done a few
