Default aftermarket boost control

I own a 2000 S80 t6 and would like to know if any one has put in an aftermarket boost controller on their car. Also would like to know if most boost controllers are universal like if i could use the one i found on ebay(http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Used-...item439ae2dd8f)?

I don't believe it will work. In these newer cars the boost is controlled by the computer so the only way you can expect to increase your boost is by a tune.

yes, and then it might get mad at you. these cars have attitude problems when you want them to be cool. the computer might not recognize then you have another list of problems. but go for it, i wanna see a fast s80 on here! it needs to be done.
