Well, the stock turbo is supposed to put out 18-20 psi of boost, and the stock wastegate is set up for that. You insert this little device in line between the waste hose and the wastegate, so it won't trip until you reach some higher pressure (28+ is what I've seen them claim, depending on which company makes this specific increase valve), which puts more strain on the stock turbo to pump that hard. Not that it will cause a failure, I've seen them ran constantly w/o problems for thousands of miles, but just realize it could.

Those valves are no harder ona turbo then a Banks Waste Gate.

Get one thats adjustable if your getting one IMO. I have JK's version and I can set it where I want it, I have mine at about 29 lbs and it works well.

I made mine with a piece of 1/4" tubing, two hose clamps, and a 0.125" drill bit. Jumped the boost to 24psi.

Been thinking about getting one of these...do the use of these set an overboost code? Is this even an issue, and how do you deal with it?

The Edge Juice will inhibit overboost, otherwise you'll need a program that takes care of this or a fooler gizmo which some are using to Band Aid.

If you are reading boost with the Edge guage, 26 is about the Max an Edge guage will read, even if you are running 30 + lbs.
Don't know if Edge has upgraded this feature.

its probably not as hard on the turbo at sea level because it doesnt have to spool up as much as higher altitude because of denser air. at a higher altitude i would be worried about blowing up that turbo
