Just remember you have to put that redline on a bolt or plug it some how. I stuck it on a the boot clamp coming off the turbo. Works pretty good right there.

I have been running that way for about a year now with no problems. Although you may need to invest into a map fooler. As the map sensor may send an overboost signal to the pcm which will cause the cel to come on. If that happens just clear the code and get a map fooler.

Also you should be running gauges when you do this.

IS THAT RIGHT? I was wondering about that myself
All I have to do is unplug the red hose and plug it? What makes it spool up faster?

The red line is a pressure line to that opens the wastegate. If you remove the line it will keep the wastegate closed longer and build boost faster. I don't think the 6.0's have a wastegate do they?
