I have a 5.3 in my 17 Silverado LT. I have been reading around about the performance upgrades. I'm not looking to mod it out to lower status but I would like some increase throttle response. It seems to lag longer than I think I should.

 

I'm in another 17 with a 5.3 (Loaner) and it's the same way. Maybe I just need to get use to it but I would like it to be faster to respond.

 

What do you recommend for this?

So those air intakes or throttle bodies won't really make a difference?

Those things are not going to make a difference on the throttle response it's controlled by computer now. I had a Blackbear tune in my 09 and it was a night and day difference in the response.

Intakes will help a bit. Throttle bodies are a giant waste of money unless you go to a super charger.

Understood. That saves a bunch of money. I'm liking the AFE momentum intake. I saw the black bear article about them testing a bunch of different ones.

I will start checking out tunes but that will most definitely wait until after warranty.

My wife's Toyota Yaris has very quick throttle responsyse. I have to be gentle when stepping on the gas or my passengers will receive a harsh ride. My truck has a more gentle throttle response that always makes for a smooth start up and ride. If I need a faster response from my truck, I simply move my foot a little faster. Enjoy driving your truck. It may perform differently than your previous vehicle but being different isn't a negative in this situation.

Drive the heck out of it! Punch the gas hard every time you drive it. After about 5000 miles, it will learn your driving style and feel a lot better. I tried this and was skeptical, but it works. Also turn off traction control.

Try this. I had so much flex in my pedal it was unreal. Definitely weird compared to my 07 classic. I used a paint stir stick and it feels so much better now. Try this and see how it improves for you.

THis sounds exactly like what i am felling. Thanks for the thread link. When i get my 2 week old truck from the shop ill have to give this a look see.

I installed Sprint Booster and am very happy with the results

 

https://www.sprintboostersales.com/

So I've just been researching this sprintbooster thing, never knew it existed, pretty interesting.

 

My question is though, on a hand held Diablo Sport tuner, there is an adjustment called "throttle boost" which I believe you can turn up to 20%. Does this throttle boost setting on the Diablo Sport tuner do the exact same thing as this sprintbooster thing?
