Big boost...worth it or not?


He mentions this "BigBoost" device that does something to the waste gate (whatever that is) to increase torque.
Is this something worth investing in, or just snake oil?

Also, what are these FUEL MOD's he speaks of in the very beginning?



Edit: Just read the E-bay description and this kit only applies to the 99-03 PSD, so it doesn't really matter!

i always wondered why people on here thought he was a little incompetent when it comes to these engines... then i watched the first two minutes of that video... like 351 said, our turbos dont have wastegates. a good turbo mod for a mostly stock truck would be a quick spool housing

Anyone who claims to have a 600hp 7.3 after a superchip, intake, exhaust, and baby shot of nitrous is avatar worthy.

literally laughed out laud here

The 99-03 7.3 has a waist gate btw, and it's the red tube mod in their section iirc,

I can't comment on that guy Kause I don't know him, some things he says are stupid, some are pretty good ideas

If you watch a lot of his videos, you'll realize that he doesn't discuss much that's applicable to the older 7.3's. Like Kris said, He has some good videos, as well as some that are just weird. But he does focus a lot on newer technology, which is probably more useful for his business.
