HIKEIT X9 High Performance Throttle Controller on a Kia Stinger

Eric Vasquez posted two YouTube videos with his installation of the HIKEIT X9 throttle controller in his Kia Stinger.

The X9 is designed to remove delay in your electronic accelerator pedal. You will get a faster response from your engine and therefore you’ll get a modified acceleration depending on the X9 setting you select.

In addition to Automatic Mode Selection, which intelligently adapts the mode to suit your driving style and the current situation, the X9 has 4 different control modes: Eco/4×4, Cruise, Sport/Tow, and HIKE IT, the highest performance mode. Each of the 4 modes has 9 different adjustable levels available for selection.

HIKE IT mode is not for the “Sunday driver.” The first of HIKE IT Mode’s nine settings is classified as intense, while settings seven through nine are like “launch mode.” Touching the Mode button while in any mode will activate Over-Take Mode, which instantly puts the X9 into HIKE IT Mode setting nine.

Auto IQ Mode
Intelligently switches between all modes, taking into account your transmission.

Overtake Mode
If no setting has been changed for 5 seconds, just push the MODE button and jump straight into HIKE IT 9.

Anti-Theft Mode
Entering Anti-Theft Mode will lock the car’s throttle and will not accelerate at idle until unlocked.
