People are idiots. The only thing a pedalbox does make your throttle mapping more aggressive, while introducing a low quality chink device between the pedal and the ECU, that may or may not malfunction and send a WOT signal all the time.
At leaft on VAG cars of the same vintage as my own (late 00s), a popular pedalbox here in Yurop eliminates the failsafe design
by Volkswagen. The accelerator pedal has dual sensors inside it, and they must always agree with each other, otherwise the car goes into extreme limp mode. The pedalbox, to save on component doubling, just modifies one of the signals and copies it to both outputs.
Pedalboxes will not: Alter throttle plate dynamics. Eliminate revhang. Increase power. Reduce "lag".
They're a scam for idiots. Just get an ECU tune that includes a throttle remap, that in addition will eliminate things like revhang that are included for emissions reasons
