Sprint booster

Hi all, a quick question for the more mechanically minded of you out there.

Got meself a brand new Civic hatchback gen9, and whilst looking around the internet for goodies to improve it, I found this gadget, "Sprint Booster"
Sprint Booster for Honda Civic (from 2012), Petrol - Manual PN:SBDJ704 | eBay
..Will it fit or be compatible on the European gen9 Civic hatchback????

I've got some magic beans and if you drop them in your fuel tank they'll give an extra 50 bhp. honest.

I'm in Gib 4-5 times a year, yet to see a clear road where you could even go full throttle!

On topic: that widget just changes the throttle map inputs.

It will fool the throttle body into thinking your foot is at 50% gas pedal position when it is infact 25% for example.

I would not recommend such a device at all.

I had a similar thing for the 8G, it fools you into thinking that the car is more responsive and faster than it is. Under some circumstances the throttle feels like it is stuck in WOT mode which is unnatural. Not recommended and I'd imagine it would affect
your insurance cover if you had an accident.
