DIY boost fooler

alright guys with the TW chip installed, i can be cruising down the road in od at 70 (1900-2000rpms) and punch it and almost instantly hit 26-30psi of boost in the extreme setting. the street setting is almost the same.

Now I guess the next step is a boost fooler. I have done a search and cant find what im looking for.I have also tried to look at the thread in the mods section that every other thread get directed to and it wont let me watch the video.

So.... what I am looking for is some pics of what some of you have done for a DIY boost fooler, and an idea of what y'all are using for a pressure regulator. and how are you guys setting the 20-22psi numbers im seeing people are using.....?
thanks
Jim

You will have to connect the regulator to an air compressor.Basically set the pressure to 21-22 psi.Have the air flowing to the regulator..connect some sort of air tool..air nozzle..something that you can control(starting and stopping the air flow) on the out-flowing side.

I have basically the same mods as you, I ran an unplugged waste gate and a DIY boost fooler and my turbo toasted. I was hitting 30psi easy on my 140 tune. Stock turbos shouldn't be hitting that. I just finished rebuilding my turbo and have it back in and running now, plugged the waste gate back in and removed the boost fooler. Im going to make power the right way from now on

id just spend the 30 bucks from kenny at KT Performance and get a boost fooler, and just watch your boost levels.. the stock turbos cant hold up to 30psi for long periods of time...
