I read in another thread about pulling out the green line and the black line and then capping them to install the boost controller with the stock hoses. I can't pull the hard hoses (green or black) ones from the black rubber connection. I know it sounds like a dumb question but i tried for 30 min and couldn't get them off. Any who has done it please help and tell how they got theirs off..........Also what u capped ur lines with?

I used some pliers to turn the hose just to losen it up, after that a nice hard tug and the hose came off.

You can buy vacum caps at any local parts store. They usually come in assorted sizes. By some zip ties also!

Start saving up for those new pistons and rings too... The PCM is gonna tear a big fat hole in your purse...
Why that statement? I'm curious. Thanks!

wow, way to find a short blunt way to put that Dale... if I'd have said that.... 40 people would have called bullshit.

My advice is the same, pull the MBC and throw it as far as you can from the engine bay. This is NOT DSM land and if it were the rate at which those guys replace parts should be a lesson to you.

Why even bother with a MBC? Stage one will keep your engine happy at 15psi without any tricks, and plenty of fuel.
I don't have an MBC, I have a EBC. The reason I have one is prep for next years big fat T3 install.

even more reason to start saving now. Can I intrest you in a power paq?
I haven't started researching engine management at this time. My plan was to run low boost on a larger setup, upgrade the FMIC, and buy a standalone system. Ableit having one to start with would be nice. Any informative links you can provide? This is the first I've heard of it.

Dale,
I thought if you had stage one it was ok to turn the boost up a bit? Why would they send us bigger injectors if our cars were running rich from the factory.
It doesn't run rich from the factory, it runs as it was intended to run.

So that we can have an opinion from the other side of the fence...
I have been running re-routed vacuum lines on a S1 setup since March or so of this year. I took the green and black line off and routed my vac. setup from the compressor housing (green line nipple) to the WGA (agp wga). I set the AGP wga at 15#'s and spliced in a MBC between the compressor and wga setting that to 18#'s. I was running high 10's low 11's :1 a/f on that setup. I am now currently running 19-20#'s on this setup and getting mid 11:1 a/f on my PLX m-300 wideband. I do not have means to monitor my EGT's at this time but from what I understand from others, everything is koshier.
For reference my mods are...
S1, AEM intake, stated vac. setup, 19-20#'s boost on 93, 3" turboback, ED intercooler, 3" cutout (a/f raises a touch with cutout open as boost raises 1-2# also), no cat, NGK plugs at .038

Thanks for explaing it, and showing some proof. All I wanted from the begining was some explanation. I really get irritated with half answers. I'm running about 17psi on 93 and when I go to the track I mixed that with a little 100 oct just to be on the safe side.

I think the only "SAFE" boost to run is what the computer tells the car to do. Anything above that COULD be catastrophic. Maybe less catastrophic if you are monitoring A/F, and using something to controll it like using the Psi Fi power paq. I have one for sale by the way if anybody is interested! PM me if you are.
