yep for sure....

I would guess it goes in the wastegate actuator line to mess with the amount of vaccum it gets, in order to build more boost. For that much money, a MAP fooler and a yanked wastegate line would be much better......

Isn't it a cheap MAP fooler?
Just buy a MAP fooler, I got mine from ITP Diesel, for about $40.00

Here is the link.

I put one on about six months ago, and the difference at Wide Open Throttle is very noticable.

Overboost Annihilator

what does a MAP fooler do exactly, and will it hurt the engine?

the computer is set to defuel the engine once the map sensor reads 25 pounds of boost. its basicly a governer. the map fooler basicly trics the map sensor into believeing its not getting more than 25 lbs of boost so your power band isnt limmited.

I havent heard of any one hurting their engine

It looks like it empties $69.00 out of your wallet.

What a douche this guy is-
"I could sense the skepticism", that sounds like a guilty conscience to me. People are always skeptical of scams.
We're supposed to beleive that sisnce the PSD came out in 1994 that this guy is the only one to ever come up with this simple easy power add-on?
All the "testimonials" he listed just sound like diconnected wastegates to me.
If theres only one person selling it, it's probably a scam. Maybe one of our vendors could shed some light on this thing?
