Bigg Boost. DON'T skin me please....

Hi,
Been researching and finding out people hate the big boost. I put it on. Noticed a little bit of a difference but not much. What good does it do if any? I'm thinking of pulling it....

you want cheap big boost? Pull the redline off the wastegate and plug it to a cac t-clamp. Take a gander at ur #'s then. If wanting to play it safe, put a 2in fuel line, between w.g. and redline.

Plug it to a cac t-clamp? Please explain. Also, are there any know cons to this approach?

d/s cac t-clamps, have the bolts protruding from them. Plug the rubber end of the redline to it. Report back your "findings"..

Would the Bigg Boost cause problems like what a clogged EBP tube would?

No

All it is, is just a device that lies to the MAP sensor.
When you start getting into high boost (over 28psi if I remember right)
it's lying to the MAP sensor so that it doesn't defuel the engine.
It wouldn't do anything to the EBP tube, nor is it related to any of those components directly.

Indirectly - yes, more fuel (specifically unburned fuel) will create some more soot and eventually cause a little blockage.
And there's a youtube videos on how to clean them - one of them from a member on here.

But if you're running some heavy tunes or higher boost - as long as Bigg Boost is working - just leave it.

I don't know why people hate it. I did install 1 in my EX. It runs a few more pounds of boost, and I can hear the turbo a little more. I havn't check fuel economy but will when we go out of town for spring break. I think it's a pretty neat idea, I would recommend it. If you look at the guys feedback, seems to work for most of all his customers.

you try the redline disconnected?

If havnt noticed much improved boost, you inspect for boost leaks? there's threads around, just need to google it, for a DIY boost leak detector.
