Default How to make turbo spool faster?

I had someone tell me there is some sort of electronic box that you plug inline with turbo ,that will make it spool quicker? Is this item out there , and does anyone have any info on it? Or was I misinformed and this person I talked to full of B.S.?
Thanks for the input.

FICM tuning and a modded EGR up-pipe will do this for you.

I just read about this, and it doesn't make much sense. I've never really heard of one cutting fuel like that and losing power from too much boost, other than holding it too long. I run over 35psi almost every day and have never had this happen.

they make stuff like that for duramaxes, to controll the vane position of the turbo and close them to increase the drive pressure and make the turbo spool faster. I think brayden fleece might make a standalone controller for the fords to where u can control the vaines on the 6.0

only negative effect i can think of is it hurting the performance is it causing too much drive pressure it chokes the engine.

bryadens controller can be used to bolt on even a 6.0 turbo onto any vehicle too.

If I do a full EGR delete , and get in touch with Innovate to see if they adjust for the FICM , you're thing I'll be in business? Thanks for the input.

Yep...best thing to do. Full delete is a bit overboard but if you got the cash and time then do it.
