Anyone run the BD Electronic Boost Builder?

BD Power - Product: Electronic Boost Builders

Wondering about it for $85. Does it do anything for guys running an SCT? I dont have injectors or turbo upgrade. Just wondering if it be beneficial, especialy for the price.

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

i have one you can have for 50$ shipped for the 6.0l i run a diffrent settup now and i dont need it.befor the upgrades i found it to give more power and fuel mileage

Now this was a superior machine. Ten grand worth of gimmicks and high-priced special effects. The rear windows lit up with a touch like frogs in a dynamite pond. The dashboard was full of esoteric lights and dials and meters that I would never understand.
