When I tuned my 07 550, only difference I could feel was the powerband, not the actual +20hp. Muffler delete + jpipe is a good way to go too.

Sounds like the consensus is that it works on the 350, not the 550. I would probably still recommend a tune over sprintbooster because a tune will actually give you a better or wider power band.
