3 Drive Throttle Controller

Hi guys, i am very keen to install this 3 Drive Throttle Controller on my car, but was wondering if anyone has tried this gadget before and does it really work.

I may be wrong but, I believe the Pivot has to be connected to the ECU and is more contrived to install vs the Blitz which just plugs into the stock harness.

Do a "search" for blitz throttle controller on this site and you'll see those who have it love it.
After reading the PDF of the Pivot unit, it looks like it might be Plug-N-Play with vehicle specific harness, too.

Glad to know that someone has tried the 3 DRIVE, so far any problems you encountered after installing it or any stuffs that need to take note?

Do you have to cut any wires to install the 3Drive?
Cos im not sure if Yaris liftback is using electronic throttle or wire throttle.
