boost fooler/.

Alright i got my 7.3 all together have about 2500 miles on it since i rebuilt it runnin great, now for more power, i already gutted my ebpv did the cold air intake deleted my muffler, and ordered my chip from php with the 120race tune. ok now should i do anything else like a boost fooler or fuel pump mods or anything else that would make "safe" hp. i realy have no idea what good if any a boost fooler will do for a stock turbo truck.

Re: boost fooler/.

all it does is keep your map sensor from seeing 25lb of boost and keep the computor from going into defuel mode. look at ITP,s site as they have a fix for 4o buks or so that fixes it with an air regulator. Engine light will stay off.

your new chip might just change the boost you see from STOCK

Re: boost fooler/.

with a 120hp chip i am sure you will hit 25lbs. what till you have it installed and go from there. You will see that when you stomp on the go pedal and hold it their for a few that your engine like will come on. No big deal. But if you want to use every bit of HP that you payed for then you will need it.

No boost fooler necessary with my tuning.... I figure PHP could do the same since I used thier software to make my tunes.... Bill?

IDK how everyone else does theirs... all my tunes are ture no code tunes because who pays attentention when they get an ICP light.... it's just an annoyance right? No boost fooler is required on mine, I had to dig deep to figure out the parameters to make it happen, and my street tunes don't hit full fuel untill you get 22 psi to keep em clean so if you did use a boost fooler with my tunes it wouldn't get full fuel.

Re: boost fooler/.

I can hit 27 psi after installing ITPs overboost innihilator. Cost me $58 shipped. I think it was well worth it.

Hey Jay,

Got your order processed just now and now it moves to Bill's desk. (Sweet price with the way you designed the chip! I had to go back and check it because I thought I'd entered something wrong!)

I told Bill about your question, and he'll pop on here when he gets a minute.

Thanks for the order!
