Soler throttle controller

I removed my TC because I installed the JMS PowerMax, and it plugs in where the TC plugs in. Iíll take $65 shipped for it (CONUS only). It works great and I wouldnít get rid of it except for using the PowerMax. It comes with the original installation instructions and the original box.

The TC is a pass through design though. I actually have my Powermax hooked up in series with my Soler TC on the accelerator pedal. I tested my output to the JMS to ensure that if I changed TC settings it was getting the correct voltage to the JMS unit. It indeed makes a large difference jumping between OE settings and say Sport mode. After getting tuned though I will admit I don't use the controller nearly as much. I leave it in OE most of the time as sport gets a little squirrelly on my JRE 125 setup.

Interesting. I got a MIL and TPS error codes when I tried using both TC and JMS Booster. So I just removed it.

Then I don't blame ya. I'd have done the same thing. Wonder if they were hooked up out of order and that ticked things off? Mine is pedal, throttle controller, JMS. This way if the throttle controller is set to OEM it's like it isn't there, but if I switch it to sport the voltage increase is getting sent to the JMS so it knows that the party is getting started. The other way around you'd be sending a stock output signal to the JMS/fpdm from the pedal output, but then also increasing the voltage signal to the computer which would likely cause an unhappy condition.

Either way, you won't miss it with a tuned higher power setup.

I tried it the same way you have it.....pedal, TC, JMS. I donít think Iíll miss it too much once my flex tune is complete (working on now). Thx for the info.

Ah yeah, just read your sig....Only difference is I'm catless. You're going to love that car with E60 in it. That setup made a world of difference on my car and Ted was great to deal with. Enjoy!

I have PLPs and no secondaries. Iím excited to see what kind of gains I get. I make a little less boost at altitude (Denver) so I wonít make quite what sea level cars make but it should still be a huge improvement.
