Default boost bottle

I was looking at boost bottles a while ago. I thought that they increase or decrease the pressure in the crankcase to give you more power. I read somewhere that they are only useful on .10 or smaller engines. Installing them requires drilling and tapping a hole in the crankcase. Sometimes this voids the warranty on the engine.

I'm pretty sure a boost bottle gives constant fuel pressure witch makes for more consistent run times.When you use the muffler for fuel pressure it changes when you accelerate or decelerate and the boost bottle is constant pressure from the crank.I've seen some of the o.s .21 that come with this setup but I'm not sure if it worth the hassle of drilling and tapping your case.And I'm pretty sure it does void any warrenty on the engine.

OK, some clarification needed here. Does the boost bottle connect to the crankcase, or the plenium area between the bottom of the carb and the crankshaft? I thought it was the latter.
