Sprint Booster for 2002 6sp manual?

Will a Sprint Booster work/be noticeable on a 6 speed manual? I have seen accolades from many but seeing most SLK's are autobox I'm not sure if its really just for an automatic. I can get new one for $299 or used from board member for $275. What do you think?

I have a friend who has it for a manual Japanese car, same thing, does what the manufacturer says, helps you reach that acceleration feeling faster with minimal foot work. If you ask me, you should try the brand new one, so you have the option to return it within 30 days if you don't like it. I bought the new one, then returned it because I hated it.

If you're interested in Sprint Booster then you definitely should read this article on a crossfire forum:

You need to register to download the PDF though. It's very interesting, especially how they market a $25 part for 10 times more =)
