Its a boost fooler. You can order one from a site vendor or build your own for less than $50 bucks. I built one for my 7.3 for $20

I agree, and because there are no pics of it I would be scared of what I was getting for $75

I dont think you even need that with out a chip. I was never able to get mine to defuel before the chip. I am not sure if pulling the red line gets you that much more either.
But you will need it when you get a chip.

The DIY fooler is hard to get set but once it is set it will help a lot.
