Increasing throttle response does not make your car faster, it just 'feels' faster.

GIAC is a fine tune for those who want a more conservative tune; they can also improve throttle mapping etc for you IIRC

OE, ESS, Evolve, they can do custom tunes for you that will be more aggressive.

Each tune has its pros and cons.

But never ever believe that one tune is better than another purely based on throttle response...this is like saying a Sprint Booster makes your car faster..

When i said throttle response i meant the power throughout the RPM band and were the car seems to pull harder and feel better at certain RPMS for example low RPMS.

Please elaborate a little better...? I'm not completely sure what you are trying to convey
