Collin, what ya got on your truck now? Fill out you sig man. AND yes, i like my Boost Stick, but i can only say I like it cause it's paired with the Juice Attitude/ Blocked egr, Finger stick. Don't know how id like if it was stock and the Boost stick was i had. Chucker

You will see a power difference, especially if you are running Edge. The boost stick is a great addition for a small price.

Enjoy!

I never towed or measured mileage while running it and only ran the BS with the Predator V2.02 on kill. Noticeable increase in power, less smoke, and lower EGT's, exactly what it was designed and advertised to do.

Excellent bang for the buck, especially when compared to exhausts and CAI's.

I love mine!:whip:
You'll be pleased, unless you have a CA emissions truck.
If you have one of those just wait until the revision comes out.

Awesome addition to the Edge. It pulls harder in L3 with BS than L4 without. Throttle response is improved, and if you can keep your foot out of it, fuel mileage actually goes up a tick.

Only downside with this combo is that you now have two more power levels to go up and really need the tranny upgraded to take advantage of it.

I like my boost stick. Really seems to make the truck pull harder. One of the members did back to back dyno runs as well w/ and w/o boost stick, definite increase.
Not sure on MPG, my foot is always on the go pedal hard...

Get one and make sure to the harness extension for easy removal (warranty). You won't be disappointed.

IMO.... If your not using some sort of programmer don't bother.

We've had mixed results with those running the BS on a stock setup, but where it seems to shine is towing.

JK,

I'm running the Predator V2.02 on an LLY. EGR Blocked and turned off via Predator. Will the BS add any performance on my truck?

It did on mine. It helps clear up black smoke(don't like) but feels like more hp there with it in(do like much more). But like someone else said puts you that much closer to needing more tranny. All together I am seeing better gas mileage too.

My boost stick I think, doesn't get along with my hypertech, mostly because the hypertech doesn't dump enough fuel, I actually get a lack of power at the top end. I am still awaiting my quadzilla tuner. I will try that one on the 135 hp setting. If I don't slip my stock trans, shoot a little propane at it. LOL If she slips, time to give ATS a call. So far my truck has been good with hypertech and pane. No slippyy.

What exactly does the boost stick do for an LLY? Change blade pitch for more boost via computer? How much more boost over stock if so? Thanks! :)

Ups the boost from a stock 22 Lbs to 32 Lbs. Lowers EGT's while towing.

Doesn't seem to agree with it. This is just my findings tho. But then again there programmer was made for a stock truck. From what I recall too hypertech never gave any towing restrictions, so leads me to believe I have out grown it.

I just purchased an Edge W/attitude for my 2005 LLY, I want to add a boost stick, but I noticed somewhere on here that it wont work with a California truck? Any help would be appreciated, also where to buy a Boost stick from?

Thanks!!
