    make your own T pill (boost line restrictor)

    T pill is what some are calling the boost line flow restrictor.

    I make mine by going to sears and finding the brass tips for wire welders. they come 3 or 5 in a box, about 1/2" long and maybe 3/16 outside diameter and come in different inside diameter holes...i pick the 0.030" ones and they work perfect.

    take one and cut a length about 3/16" long.. chamfer the edges so they dont cut your hose when inserting. Just shove it in there. I also use them in lines going to gauges to make them easier to read.

    just thought I'd post this in the FAQ section

    I too was curious how much boost pressure this would produce? a follow up with some pictures would be nice.

    you dont produce any extra boost. The 30thou hole is too big, probably, for that. It just smooths the build up. Macc used diff size main jets in his pills/tubes to affect boost but thats not my aim. I use a boost controller for that.

    I really got tired of dealing with boost tubes, jets, and the stupid selenoid. So instead I just bought a NXS Manual Boost Controller for $20 on eBay. It's so easy, set it once and forget about it.

    Note that you will still need a Macsboost chip to make use of any boost modifications.
