    It is a part of the stock boost control system required to achieve correct boost. Why would you want to remove it?

    If you're changing boost controllers and getting retuned then you wouldn't need it.

    do NOT remove the restictor pill. Those who claim you will "get more boost" are idiots. The restrictor pill keeps the WG seeing the correct amount of pressure. Without it, your car will underboost and boost control will be erratic.
