Boost stick who has one?

Hi everyone. Well before anyone says buy a tuner well I don't have that kind of money right now. My truck is an 06 lbz. Afe intake, mbrp 3" downpipe, 5" exhaust, egt blocked off and finger stick, Trans go it shift kit. Those are my mods. I want to add a boost stick but I'm on stock tuning. Will it hurt anything? Will it give me a small boost in power? How is it that this is suppose to lower egts? Thanks in advance

I don't know anything about a boost stick but I can tell you that there are some great deals on used Superchip tuners for LBZ on e-bay and it makes great power.
Here's one Click here.

Moved to third gen electronics.
Personally Id save my money and invest in proper tuning when I could swing the cost. The turbo runs pretty efficient at stock boost levels. No real bonus in just upping the boost.

So I went to purchase a superchips flashpaq locally but when we tried to install the program it said my program was not stock. So my truck has some kind oftener on it? The gentleman I bought my truck from never mentioned any tuner. How do I get this tune that's on my truck off?

The Boost stick was designed for a very specific purpose: To reduce EGT's/add boost to the LLY running the one dimensional Edge Juice. These days with proper ECM tuning there should be no need for the Boost Stick except in those cases where it is needed as a band aid. Many tuners still do not alter boost so the product still exists.

It does not matter what is on the ECM in your truck, we can overwrite with known, proven good tuning and you'll never look back.
