They are pretty nice. Its better than just plugging your wastegate thats for sure. My edge came with one, but it wasn't one of those adjustable ones. Just has a plug in it with a smaller orifice. The adjustable ones seem pretty sweet. If you can drill and tap, you can make one for about $4. You need a brass hose barb fitting. 1/8th NPT on the threaded side and well, hose barb on the other side. Then drill and tap for a threaded allen plug, which you can get at the hardware store as well for about 40cents. Pretty easy to do really.

But you need that tiny bleed hole too...

A buddy got one on his 92 Cummins and it a Gawd send... You can tune the max turbo pressure where you want it.
