Thx

Since the blue pill it self and the Ancillary items do not show negative info about this you can assume it works.

That's what i thought, however when plugging it in to EFT it doesn't give a boost. I'm thinking it's either a bug in EFT or i missed something.

unless someone has tried it it's all guesswork tbh, CCP isn't known for doing logical stuff or doing things correctly in the first place. I guess the fastest answer you'll get is by going on the test server and having a go.

That's patently false. Just because something should work doesn't preclude the possibility that CCP completely broke it (e.g. with marauders).
