Get more performance out of your electronically controlled engine by plugging in one of BD’s Electronic Boost Builders. Installed in-line with the MAP sensor, the Electronic Boost Builder increases boost pressure and intercepts the message to the ECM, preventing it from setting an overboost trouble code that can cost between 50-80 horsepower. BD’s Boost Builders are a perfect match for engines with non-boost control power module, injector or turbo enhancements.
If you are towing heavy loads, using a downloader/programmer or if you are just running modified injectors on your 1998.5-2009 5.9L or 6.7L Dodge Cummins, then the Boost Fooler is a MUST HAVE PRODUCT! On the 6.7L this product is a MUST HAVE to go with ANY electronic performance device including the plug in devices!
While programmers can definitely improve performance, there are still things that they cannot do to allow you to gain optimal power and efficiency out of your engine. The Boost Fooler will allow you to increase turbo boost to compensate for the added fueling modifications you have made. Enabling your turbo to produce more boost will increase overall horsepower and torque and you will lower your exhaust temperatures.
The Boost Fooler is even a great enhancement for a stock truck that hauls heavy loads and needs exhaust temperature reduction. Even on a stock truck you can easily gain 5-8psi of boost pressure to help cool your EGTs. You will also see a slight improvement in peak horsepower.
The Boost Fooler uses a specialized high impedance circuit to allow you to make more turbo boost without setting any ECU error codes. The Boost Fooler is 100% weatherproof and designed for simple under-the-hood installation.
So what can you expect?
On any year model Dodge, you will be able to make as much turbo boost as possible with your fueling modifications. It is important to notice that the stock turbos do have some limitations.
If you desire extreme levels of turbo boost, you may need a larger, aftermarket turbocharger. Horsepower gains will vary from 10hp on a stock truck up to 50hp on heavily modified trucks. EGT reductions will vary from 75Â°F on a stock truck and up to 300Â°F on heavily modified trucks.
