qestion regarding different map foolers and max boost

It's been awhile since i've posted anything...
I just finished my build up on my 7.3 and and i'm trying to get everything finished up on it. I want to install a map fooler on my truck and was wondering what the difference or which is better regarding the different map foolers out there... the regulator type or i noticed there is one that sells on ebay which plugs in line with the wire harness into the valve, which has green and red vacuum lines coming off of it.
Also, i just finished my build up.. 7.3, studded the heads, everything new, ballbuster turbo, what do you guys think is my high boost.. i don't want to run razor's edge, just a real comfortable boost...
motor is being installed next weekend.
thanks for any input.

your best bet on a MAP fooler is the plug in type. I've used both, I started out with the releif valve and went to the plug-in about a week later, no regrets.

As far as what you max boost with the BB turbo, that's better answered by someone other than myself...

Congrats on getting the rig back up, post some pics, let us know how it's going.

A "relief valve" is a leak...not recommended.

I've worked with several of the electronic variety and was not impressed...some caused low speed/boost drivability problems. That's why I stuck with the regulator type, no leaks and no messing with the electronics...just a simple mechanical solution to a mechanical issue (too much boost seen by the MAP sensor).

I agree with the regulator. I have tried the electronic types and was not impressed. The map sensor works with only five volts. It doesnt take much to decrease the voltage. This causes the sensor to react slowly and possibly cause slow boost drivabilty problems.

I have the Boost Anahilator from Dennis at ITP and it works great, takes a couple of minits to install, and does exactly what he said it would.....just don't turn the knob when you put it in hahaha.

Just an FYI, I'm out of Overboost kits for another week or so. I'm waiting for parts to come from the powdercoater and I have to run another 100 regulators through my test bench and dial them in.
