Default what does this do?

well im bored at work, an on page 42 of 44 on ebay i came across this

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/New-B...QQcmdZViewItem

i was wonderin what this does exactly? are these the hoses that go to/from the factory boost control? how does changin these make a difference in boost? i understand that by having a bigger hose the vacuum/pressure moves faster, but would this make more boost too?

from what i see it just makes the restriction in your boost lines smaller therefore creating more boost. horrible idea.

Run....run fast. I will make a difference in boost for a week or so before the ECU learns around it and you get really crappy boost.

Right.. BUT i do believe this is essentially a pill that will go between your wastegate and bost solenoid. reducing the inner diameter of the hose at the coupling adjusts how boost responds. Shiv used to (and may still) install these on on wrx's with stock boost solenoids.

From my experience, something like this will cause over-boosting - especially in the lower revs. Your ecu will then retard the timing, negating any performance you'd get with the higher boost pressure. It might work if you were tuned for it though.

I'll bet this is the same guy selling 18mm spark plug antifoulers, as a cat code CEL fix. (yes it works, been doing it for years, just not smart enough to sell a $1.26 part for $15.00)
