Eh, I'm not a fan of that stuff... it eliminates part of the computer's failsafe system for the turbo. If you have a boost spike, and the fooler hides it from the computer, you the driver will never be aware of the problem.

Why not just get a proper SCT tune that changes the boost settings in the computer?

it will give you good gains with a stock truck and no tuner. with a competent tune writer they will have already written in fuel on the low end which is where you will notice the bd boost builder. id save the $85 bucks if you have a custom tuned sct
