DIY boost fooler worth doing on e99?

Would the DIY boost fooler be worth doing on my early 99? I've yet to get an overboost SES light, but I thought I might do it before I do get the light.

Thoughts?

Do you have tunes? If so won't hurt. I'm running the ITP Overboost Annihilator and boosting to 26 psi wide open throttle. If I didn't have the boost fooler, I'd be throwing the 1211.

on my E99 i went to napa and got some small black hose, and a T fitting, i spliced my vaccum line and connected it with the black hose and cut the hose to put the T in the middle to make my own.....with all my boots tight and no leaks i can find, i've seen as high as 45 psi on my Quadzilla Monitor so maybe it wasn't the best mod to do, but its still throwing the code so who knows

Do it before you get tunes. Otherwise you will probably defuel when you hit about 22 PSI.

That wouldn't be the 1211. I forget the code for over boost but the 1211 is Injection Control Pressure Higher/Lower than Desired.

Thats because you didn't put in a boost fooler. A boost fooler tricks the PCM into thinking its only getting <22psi.

And how in the hell are you getting 45 PSI? Either the monitor is WAY off or you are running big injectors.

Or you might be seeing Absolute, which is approximately 14.7 psi higher than actual boost pressure.

What he said

Depending on the tuner you may not need it. Some can tune it out.

Correct. But that will cost extra for the tunes. Id talk to the tuner and see which would be the better route. I'm gonna guess it would be cheaper to do your own.
