BIG BOOST ON EBAY????

HAS ANYONE TRIED ONE OF THOSE BIGBOOST UNITS SOLD ON EBAY?? IT IS ONLY 70 BUCKS AND CLAIMS TO ADD MORE POWER AND MPG. OR IS IT A WASTE OF TIME IF YOU PLAN ON GETTING A PROGRAMMER??

If it's cheap and on ebay, it's usually a hose job.............

It hardly even gives any info about the product, save your money and put it towards something that is proven and actually helps

I SAW IT ON POWERSTROKEHELP.COM AND IT MADE 30 MORE FOOT POUNDS OF TORQUE ON A DYNO. I WAS CURIOUS IF ANYONE ELSE HAS TRIED IT AND IF IT WAS USELESS WHEN A CHIP OR PROGRAMMER WAS INSTALLED.

First thing, take your dang cap lock off, please. Its annoying.

Second, big boost is a waste of money. You can do the same thing by unplugging the wastegate actuator line (red line going to the turbo) and using a 4.7v zener diode for a boost fooler, all of which will cost you maybe $5.

Third, you won't see an increase in power from this, Hank (thats his username on here) proved it on a dyno. I think it was Hank anyway.

Fourth, the powerstrokehelp guy is a DUMBAZZ. Nuff said.
