Question Map or Overboost Annihilator

So does an Overboost annihilator or a MAP sensor maximizer shorten the life of your turbo since it's spinning faster with no limits? and if they're good mods with no drawbacks, which one would you reccomend?

I thought you were looking for fuel mileage.

It will kill your turbo and mileage because you will be hot rodding it all the time because you can......LOL....

26ish-psi all day long is all you want to push it. Every once in a while up to 32psi is OK but if you live at 30-32psi, like I did for 3 months, it will die a very fast death.

Mileage did not get effected on my truck.



The limit of spinning your turbo is your right foot, your tune you are running and your injectors. With stock injectors I bet the most you will see is 32-34psi.

i don't know about you, but as a daily driver, I rarely even go over 15psi. 2 reasons: fuel economy and speeding tickets. the map and the boost tube will be fine. been running them both for about 2 years and i've got 150k+ on the motor/turbo.

With our current mods you will not be able to make enough boost to kill a turbo. No Way! What kind of boost are you making now?

And Sir, you do not have a $1000 turbo. They are $700 if you have it rebuilt for you and $165 if you rebuild it yourself.

I'm still putting it all together

I don't know how much boost I'm at right now, I haven't got any gauges yet It's good to know I can rebuild it for $165, maybe that Oveboost annihilator is sounding better afterall.

Keep in mind the overboost devices out there only help you if you have the means to make more than 24psi of boost.

I would not put this on your truck until you have gauges.

Just get it and listen to Strokin early 99. I've been listening and learning. This week I need to break down and get one myself. I can't floor it without defueling and throwing a CEL on the highway. From 65MPH, 90MPH comes on fast and it defuels around 25psi.. then falls on it's face. Time to call Jody, get a chip, and overboost annihilator.

I promise you I'll ruin my turbo before you will Just keep your boost under 26-28psi and you will be fine for a LONG time.
