What exactly does a boost controller do? Is it just making your boost always be at 16 PSI or what? If so, isn't this hard on your engine? Fill me in or give me a link that explains things in layman's terms for me!

EBC = Electronic boost controller

MBC + Manual boost controller.


The electonic one you can use to controll your boost in the car and it also have various features like overboost protection etc.


A manual one allows you to raise the boost manual. IN other words, you have to set it then drive your car to see if your boosting enoug of to much.


15psi is a safe number to boost on our car.

There is a difference between spiking to 15psi and actualy boosting 15psi. Just ask drolander. :)

Ok so thats what I was asking. With a boost controller it hits 15psi as soon as you floor it and holds it through all the gears?

Isn't this sure to lower the life of your turbo system and possibly your engine?
