It's my first time pulling interior pins from any car.

I prefer being overly cautious than reckless. Other people have experience, other people have a complete disregard for their own things, and I'm neither of those.

Either way, I have extra pins in the mail, so I'll likely give it another go today.

It's not going to be difficult. The worst thing is trying to pull out those Xmas tree retainers while laying across your rocker panel. I hate these type retainers wherever they are. You might try my method with the wire wrapped under the head and yank down. That worked far better than the trim removal tool. After the two retainers are out just pull the panel down a bit to clear the dash and pull toward you. Then just reach up unclip the pedal connector, clip it in to one end of the pedal commander then attach the other end back on to the gas pedal. Notice that one of the new connectors has that red locking tab you need to push to lock after the connector clicks in place, Route cable, slide the trim into a clip in the rear and replace the retainers and you're done. Ten minutes tops.

Try one of these trim tools. They work great.

Getting the first one one was a *****. I ended up using the lanyard that came in the box.

Anyways, this isn't a 5 minute install, specially if you're over 6' tall.

I recommend a good flashlight you can point upwards, a mirror, and a couple of towels so you don't ruin your knees. I tested it and it certainly feels more responsive, but I'll give it a week so I can decide if I think it was worth $270.

The panel sort of slots back in, no need to pin it back up. If it falls during driving I will pin up at least one of them.

Who has installed the Sprint Booster AND the Pedal Commander to tell us about the difference between them?

I'm looking at the Sprint Booster because it has less settings, I don't need eighteen different settings, just normal, medium & high is enough. Keep it simple.

2012 Dodge Challenger R/T Plus Customer Preferred Package 28J w/ Heated Leather Seats (awesome!) Automatic Transmission w/ MDS (24 mpg highway!) Super Track Pack (awesome!) Anti-spin Differential (only $100 bargain of the year!) HID Headlamps, Engine Block Heater (seemed like a good idea at the time...)

The Pedal Commander has three primary settings, City, Sport and Sport Plus. One button cycles through them. A separate button can fine tune between the primary settings. They were not noticeable to me so I just played with City and Sport to find the one I liked best. Still, simple, quick to use.

It was 4 different settings, and if you want to fine tune them, you can.

Don't get scared by options, specially when you can just hide the controller behind the dash when you're done fine tuning.

has any one used either one on a supercharged car, i was going to add a sprint booster to my maggiecharged 2010 SRT8 with custom tune but the tuner advised me against it , i dont like the lag time when you hit the gas tuner said he could adjust but that means taking it back to them--long drive,different country etc

Well, nuts.

I didn't even know sprint booster existed until after I had bought PCmdr.
