I was on Google trying to figure out what happened to the SPG9 site, and this T5Boost thing was listed under Google's cars->european->sweden directory.

It doesn't sound like it would be too safe, though - if it is fooling the ECU, then couldn't it harm other parts? The ECU would be operating fuel, air, etc. on what it thinks is normal boost, but in reality it would be higher. Doesn't sound quite right, but it does sound interesting...

What the T5Boost does is only fooling the MAP sensor to believe that the boost pressure is lower than it really is and therefor the Trionic increases the boost to what it thinks is normal.

NOTE! This means that you are running with lean fuel mixture which can leave you with nice holes in your pistons :nono;

I would never install such a thing in my car, but if you do make sure to not use the power too long periods at a time. I think that this product is most intended for overtaking and not for track days.

Since there are so many companies who sells ECU's with a lot more "safer" power why not use them instead? Especially since the T5Boost isn't very cheap.
