I think 7.3s were the ones that needed what I think was called a boost annihilator or something like that.

I don't think you need one for the 6.0s even if your running an a/m turbo, I know on mine it was done thru the computer.

A boost FOOLER on a 6.0??? Please explain this as the VGT is completely electronically controlled. No need for a boost fooler.

I installed a boost relief valve not a boost fooler. That works by "fooling" the PCM by relieving excess boost to the map sensor so it does not attempt to defuel which allows the truck to recive full boost and fuel. so, no more SES light and full fuel delivery through all RPM and boost ranges.

cut the line going to the map sensor and splice it in. I bought it from dieselsite.com.
