Pedal Control 2.0 for Mercedes Sprinter

The pedal control is one of the best upgrades you can do to your Mercedes Sprinter. The Sprinter is notorious for hesitation and throttle lag when accelerating. This is even more apparent when driving a fully converted van or taking your Sprinter 4x4 off road. The pedal control allows you to tune the throttle response based on road conditions or your preference. Simply connect via the app on your smartphone to dial in the throttle response. 

Installation is easy and can be done at home in your driveway. 

At first, there was the Pedal Box, which made the van more responsive but didn't solve the power delivery curve issue. Now, with the introduction of the Pedal Control 2.0, we are able to drastically smooth the power curve and eliminate the hesitation + abrupt power delivery of the factory sprinter.

How does it work?

The modern Sprinter has a drive-by-wire throttle system as well as a turbo. The engine must have a certain level of RPM to spool up the turbo to add power. This is why there is a big hesitation off the line followed by a big wallop of power. The Pedal Control 2.0 interrupts and re-broadcast a new signal to the van's ECU. This allows you to adjust the throttle input electronically so that the Sprinter drives much more normally.
