Accell pedal question

Hey guys here's my question. Can I interchange a 2006 Rav4 V6 accell pedal Denso 78110-42010 with a 2011 CTS 78110-0R022 pedal? The dealerships say I shouldn't but could not give me a reason why other than "the book shows different part numbers". If you really know why I can or can not I would apperciate an answer.

Why?

2006 RAV4 V6 4WD Red Limited - wife's
2006 Accord V6 Hybrid - Dr. Dyno's - quick as the RAV but +8 mpg
2003 Odyssey V6 - handy people & cargo mover

2001 F-250 4X4 Diesel - truck camper, TS chip, 20' bike/trike dyno trailer

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

Well I owned the 06 and sold it to my fasther in law. The one thing I loved about the 06 was the agresive accelleration it had at initial tip in, it was a blast. My 2011 feels well very sedate ... ok boring. My father in law really likes the 06 but wishes it was less agressive. We all know how Sprint booster works by changing the amplitude of the signal so I'm thinking ,wondering if I switched accel pedals maybe we both would get what we want.

This should work as long as the connectors are the same. I think it's held in place with 2 bolts and it should be plug and play. I'd like to know how it works out!

JuneBug thanks for your replies. I checked and the Denso fits all years 06 - 13 but the CTS 09 - 13 so I'm sure it will fit and the connections are the same. I know sprintbooster uses same part number for 2006 -2012. The guys and dealer ships are saying it could fry the ecu , or since it came with the CTS it should replaced with a CTS. So if have some inside info please feel free to tell me it will work and why, I'm just a little unsure. I really don't want to damage my father in laws Rav would not be good!!

That's a really nice win-win trade idea.

Now if the colors match and he wants the tilted-forward front headrests and the high rear headrests that would be good too. He is not likely to want that trade however.

I don't think anyone knows for certain, except for a few Toyota engineers. This kind of stuff isn't even in the factory service manuals. I do know the CTS pedals were first used in 2009 when the Canadian assembly plant went online. Denso pedals were still being used in the Japanese plants.

I'd use a process of elimination. First check the wire colors and pinouts to the pedal module. If they are the same I'd be tempered to try it. If not you'd need more tests. The fact that "sprintbooster uses same part number for 2006 -2012" is almost a 100% guarantee the two brand pedals are interchangeable. Measuring the voltages at both would be a final confirmation.

My suspicion is that the difference in tip-in is in the ECU programming not the pedal. But if it is in the pedal as Carbon said you would have found solutions for BOTH those who aren't comfortable with the tip-in and those you love it.

Well I made the swap today of my 2011 accel pedal with my father in laws 2006. It work!! The tip in now on my 2011 is much more aggressive the way I wanted and on his 2006 its more reserved the way he wanted. We tested both vehicles at partial and full throttle with no problems or error codes. I think I need to go for drive again!
